About Daniel L. Lowery

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Daniel L. Lowery has spent the last 18 years in sales. For the past eleven years he has operated a small cellular phone dealership with his brother in Southern California. Dealing with A.T.& T., MCI, Verizon, T-Mobile and other telecommunication giants gave him first hand knowledge of corporate competition.
While looking for solutions to his own David and Goliath struggle, Lowery noticed very few management books geared to the independent business owner. CEO’s, vice-presidents and other executives could draw on the acumen of Churchill, Robert E. Lee, Sun-Tzu and a host of other historical figures for their problems, but the issues of the smaller entrepreneur were scarcely mentioned. Puzzled by the lack of material on this subject, Lowery spent the next seven years researching the best methods for smaller businesses to compete against their giant adversaries. From that research came Battling The Corporate Giants: The Ultimate David and Goliath Story: a book truly written from the trenches of corporate warfare.
Recently Lowery has spoofed the Creationist movement with Paradox Lost. A book that evokes such literary masterpieces as Paradise Lost, The Divine Comedy, Faust and more to satirize the false idol of Intelligent Design.
Daniel L. Lowery resides in Ramona, California with his wife Claudia, son Ryan and daughter Larissa. He is always looking for a good opportunity.

Review by: Giorgio Marcaccini on June 27, 2013 :
If you love history, Giants is the right book for you. If you love business and you want to hear smart considerations about it, Giants is also the right book. If you love both of them Giants is a must for you. In any case I think that the book is a great approach between two worlds that are far away from each other .... but in real terms not too much.

Review by: Andrew Allen on March 13, 2011 :
This book has a lot of good advice for small business owners or those thinking of starting a small business. The use of the biblical story is entertaining, in addition to adding a fresh perspective. An enjoyable, informative, and thought-provoking read.

An earlier review noted issues with the formatting. The formatting looks fine now.

An interesting take on taking an old story and adapting it to modern small businesses.

The good: I like the concept, and it's easy to comprehend the writer's points. It exposes a lot of things small business owners might not be aware of.

The bad: The formatting is horrible. It was obviously converted over from a print edition, and the styles were mangled brutally. The advice is targeted specifically towards small retailers, and towards the end I felt the analogy was wearing thin.

If you're interested in small retail, it's got a few good ideas, so worth a quick read.
