I have previously read Gino Wickman's "Traction" and loved it. I was surprised that the "Rockefeller habits" are almost an exact copy of that book, even the sub-titles are related. That said, the book had zero additional value. "Traction" is even more hands-on - chose that one.
Something about growing an IT company.
There is an expanded section on getting bank financing - while the book does not go into when you should seek financing and when not, it is the only part where this book exceeds the contents of "Traction".
I still don't know what this book has to do with Rockefeller. In the beginning, the author makes some painfully artificial references to him, there are the usual "five points of this", not to mention "the seven factors of that", and then he drops the ball and writes the book he intended to before the publisher insisted on a catchy theme.
More content. The content is very superficial, there isn't actually much advice in it. Read "E-Myth" instead.
Anybody else. This guy has a pronunciation that is very hard to get used to. He lingers on consonants and seems to split sentences as he pleases. Very annoying and extremely distracting.
It was nice to indulge in the fantasy of what it will be like to sell a business. But the book will skip how to get there. The story is very naive and simplistic.
The narrator should be avoided! Listen to a sample first.
