Matthew Burgess is certainly ‘the lawyer to get when you don’t want to deal with a lawyer’; yet he’s far more than that—he is an incredibly deep thinker, and a great storyteller.
I couldn’t put The Dream Enabler down, because not only do the stories of real people read like a novel, the lessons Matthew imparts in between are profound.
If you’re a businessperson—in any field—you will find this book thought-provoking and valuable, and you’ll see why one of Matthew’s customers called him ‘The Dream Enabler’–Indeed!

I have just completed ‘The Dream Enabler’ – the completion is a good sign in itself as I am very good at not finishing books if the large pile on my beside table is any indication.I am amazed that a practising lawyer would write a book on the keys to business success, particularly one that seeks to synthesise so much of the available learning from the authors in this area.There has obviously been an extraordinary amount of reading to have developed a range of remarkable insights into what drives businesses and individuals to succeed.
This book is a remarkable and unusual achievement.

The Dream Enabler is unlike any other book I’ve read. Most books are ‘linear’ in form; you start here and it’s a gentle journey to the end. This is anything but linear. And that’s precisely what makes it so great.
One moment you’re deeply engrossed in a beautifully told story about a High Net Worth person Matthew has worked with and learned from; the next moment you’re ‘transported’ into a wonderful, brilliant almost barrister-like and superbly researched discussion on disrupting professions or on providing amazing service or on building world-class companies or on personal habits or … the list is huge.
Again, it’s unlike ANY book I’ve read. And that’s partly what makes it great. Hitherto untold deeply personal ‘inside’ stories topped with caring (and daring) insights.
And it’s that ‘caring’ piece that really makes this great. This is not someone ‘preaching’ at you; it’s someone involved in his own search sharing that uniqueness with you. And, just like this book, that’s rare and worth grabbing hold of.
