    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.

    M. Muin says: "Good content, Very bad narration"
    "In a word? Appalling."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I couldn't even get into the content, the narration was so bad. A giant shame I gather, as many reviewers who have managed to suffer the read appear to have gained from it. I may have to try again, but I'm bot looking forward to it.


    Would you recommend Built to Sell to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, for the reason previously stated.


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

    Just about anyone.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I've suffered only a few less-than-average reads in the months I've been with Audible, but none to the lack of skills this narrator brings to the table. So much so, that after struggling with this, I wonder if this guy passed an audition?
