    A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if I thought they could handle the terrible narration.


    What was most disappointing about John Warrillow’s story?

    It was OK. I'm just not crazy about the story approach. Seems a little bogus, as if the message is, "See, this guy followed the book's advice and look at how successful he was." Just give me the information and let me decide. Or if it's going to be a story, make it something that actually happened.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Erik Synnestvedt?

    Anybody. ANYBODY! My gramma?
    Joel Lefferrt was good with one of these story books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I couldn't handle the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Please make more of an effort to in choosing a narrator. I cannot believe the publisher would have accepted this guy if they had given him an interview. (Unless he's maybe the boss's son in law.)

  • A Healthy Dose of Motivation: 'The Aladdin Factor' and 'Dare to Win'

    Two motivational classics from the Chicken Soup inspirational masters. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen deservedly rank among the world’s most effective motivators. Their secret is simple: a time-tested blend of equal measures of powerful how-to ideas and inspiring, touching anecdotes about real people. Like any recipe, this one’s success lies in the quality of its ingredients—exactly where Hansen and Canfield shine.

    Would you try another book from Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen and/or Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen ?

    Probably not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen again?

    Not if they are narrating it. They're just awful.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen ?

    No idea, but someone who is a professional reader.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is far too repetitious, but that would be bearable were it not for the sophomoric reading skills of those two guys. They seem to be in love with their delivery, and they seem to think they have to put great emotion into words that speak just fine for themselves.
