    In this audio edition of the totally revised underground best seller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business, from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed.

    Overall

    I had heard about this book for years, but Gerber's writing style, with its endless dependent clauses, bothered me. However, when I got the audio book, and heard him reading it, and got the way it was meant to be taken in, I got it.

    This book has radically helped me in the past month and a half since I read it, and dramatically changed how I look at my (*CURRENTLY*) one-person business. I cannot recommend this book enough to those of you who started a small business without any entrepreneurial training or experience.

    Paulo Coelho's enchanting novel has inspired a devoted following around the world. This story, dazzling in its simplicity and wisdom, is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of treasure buried in the Pyramids. Along the way he meets a Gypsy woman, a man who calls himself king, and an Alchemist, all of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Alchemist to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, but Jeremy Irons' delivery is just perfect. He's so into it. He does such a great job, and cares about the story very much. The tone of his delivery lets you know he loves a fable, and knows just how to tell one.


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Irons’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but now I will


    Any additional comments?

    This is an all-around wonderful tale. While keeping to simple language and themes, it goes right to the heart of many of the key issues in life.
