This book didn't give me a lot. I found the narration a tad irritating but told in an entertaining way. The idea communicated seems sound but with little proof and many examples/anecdotes. It would be great if told in a shorter book or seminar but the audiobook was a waste of time for me since I've read similar before.
Still I would recommend it to some friends who are reading less than I do.
This advice works. Very practical. Yet not common sense. I highly recommend this book. Mike is a great reader easy and enjoyable to listen to.
It's read by the author and it's like he is on steroids, a torrent of words comes your way the moment you press the Play button.
Have it read by a different person
It's one of the few books that I haven't finished.
I would if he did not narrate it.
The ideas are good. The metaphor is good. It's clear and helpful.
The narrator really distracts the listener from hearing the information. He makes up voices for everyone he quotes and they sound constipated or mentally challenged. His humor is that of an insecure freshman trying to impress - lame and more embarrassing than keeping quiet. I usually cut the narrator a lot of slack, especially if it is their book, but this one I couldn't let go. It actually made me angry while I was listening to it. I was frustrated to be thinking about how stupid it sounded instead of how I can be a better business person. I think the book would probably be a great one if it were just read out loud without all the angsty guffaws.

this book was very informative and animated. Really appreciate the other bringing a spin to understanding how to be successful would you want business.
Author is super cheesy--to the point of being cringeworthy with his jokes and quips, but the material is fantastic. The advice is understandable and practical. Perfect for new or newish business owners. Exactly what I was looking for. Recommend following it up with his next book "Put Profit First."
If you are looking for direction this is a great start. This books is filled with great advice. While at first it'll seem like common sense you'll be surprised at your ah ha moments. Great read, enjoy.
This was a great insight in to making a business push to great success. Even covers lots of misconceptions in business. The book being read by the author himself makes it even better. Overall great info and great to listen to
