‘’He shares his experiences and lessons learned with everyone who wants to be successful.’’

 ‘’I met my friend Baybars at an international business angel investment event. I was extremely impressed with his enthusiasm, his energy, his commitment and his vibrant personality. Style is the man. His book Off the Bus, into a Supercar is his own life story. It is an incredible account of how a person with no money and no background in business became a successful entrepreneur. What impressed me most is that Baybars has a big heart. He shares his experiences and lessons learned with everyone who wants to be successful. That’s the Baybars Altuntas I know.’’

Brilliantly done, my fellow Dragon from another country!’’

‘’If you want to become an entrepreneur, read this book. If you are already an entrepreneur, read it. If you ever have a chance to meet with Baybars Altuntas in person, take it. ‘’

‘’This book is about bravery. It is about belief. It is about a great personality. It is about one of the greatest entrepreneurs I know. A true self-made man who took his life into his own hands, against all odds. Baybars shares stories from his childhood with us (read how he made his first dollar in fourth grade – it’s fun) until his more recent successes and greatest achievements. His vita is truly striking. I have the pleasure of serving with him on the board of directors of EBAN and he is one of the nicest people I know: inspiring, brilliantly witty, creative and fully dedicated to entrepreneurship. If you want to become an entrepreneur, read this book. If you are already an entrepreneur, read it. If you ever have a chance to meet with Baybars Altuntas in person, take it.’’

‘’His journey from very modest background to represent his country at the White House is extraordinary. ‘’

‘’Baybars´ story is certainly an inspiration to us all. His journey from a very modest background to represent his country at the White House is extraordinary. But that is not my major take from this business book. Rather, the most important point Baybars formulates is that of entrepreneurial spirit, for he is one of the few that can really make change, create growth and above all show prudent leadership.’’

‘’Baybars is just this sort of person. In the pages of this book, you will read the fascinating story of his road to success. He is truly an inspiration for everyone.’’

’Success can be defined in many ways. No matter how you conceptualize and define it, success derives from a capacity to make the most of opportunities that present themselves and the ability to use these in a way that benefits humanity. Even a single individual can produce important things for humanity. He may write a story that will be appreciated by the future generations, for example.  If a person with a story can look forward to the future, he can pair his optimism with entrepreneurship. This sort of person is always ready for something new and can therefore be productive. People who never lose hope will enjoy life more than those who do. The will to grasp onto life without losing hope brings love, and this love brings success. Baybars is just this sort of person. In the pages of this book, you will read the fascinating story of his road to success. He is truly an inspiration for everyone.’’

‘’This book is one of the world’s top 5 titles on entrepreneurship and startups.’’

‘’I picked up the original Turkish version of Off the Bus, Into a Supercar from the bestseller shelf in the bookstore at the Istanbul airport while waiting for a flight to Lyon. Arriving in Lyon 4 hours later, I had finished the book, all in a single sitting. Baybars Altuntas shares the secrets of becoming a successful entrepreneur in this light-hearted account of his own journey. He lays out a practical roadmap that can easily be followed by anyone, no matter who or where they are. His concept of “rising steps” is brilliant: wannapreneurship, innovation, entrepreneurship, marketing and sales, branding, institutionalization, franchising, leadership and angel investment. He takes you by the hand, describing in clear detail each step of the way. As you progress, you also learn about various ways to access financing, from bootstrapping, to angel investors, to VCs and banks. Baybars sagely advises us, however, that networking is far more important than finance. He provides real examples from his own life story and you come to the realization that, if you can manage to actualize the Altuntas principle of converting idle capacity into cash, then you’ve made it, You will have become a successful entrepreneur without any financing at all! As the Executive Chairman of the World Entrepreneurship Forum, I follow closely the latest publications on entrepreneurship. I rank this book as one of the world’s top 5 titles on entrepreneurship and start-ups.  Not only is it informative, it’s a delightful read as well. Highly recommended for young entrepreneurs wanting to set up their own businesses and for others aiming to grow theirs.’’
