    Michael E. Gerber, the world's leading small business guru and best-selling author of the phenomenally successful The E-Myth Revisited, presents the next big step in entrepreneurial management and leadership with E-Myth Mastery. This audiobook presents a practical, real-world program that can be implemented in real-time in your business.

    Overall

    I love great business books. This isn't one of them. E Myth Revisited was wonderful. I managed to suffer through 2 CD's of E Myth Mastery but couldn't take any more. It's the most painful droning of someone spewing words without information imaginable. Save yourself the pain and read E Myth Revisited twice.

    OK that might be an exaggeration but had I read this book 25 years ago before starting my first business, I could have avoided dozens of problems, saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and pushed up growth by at least a decade.....assuming I was wise enough as a 24 year old skull of mush to put the wisdom into practice. I learned many of these lessons the hard way. If you're starting a company, you must start here.

    Lee Iacocca believes that leaders are made in times of crisis - such as today. In Where Have All the Leaders Gone? he offers his no-nonsense, straight-up assessments of the American politicians most likely to run for president in 2008. He also shares his lessons learned, and issues a call to action to summon Americans back to their roots in hard work, common sense, integrity, generosity, and optimism. Where have all the leaders gone? Lee Iacocca has the answer.

    Michael says: "Good listen after the Bush bashing"
    "awful"

    So bad my first 2 reviews were rejected. Let's just go with one awfully bad book.

  • The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich

    The 4 Hour Work Week explains what a lifestyle entrepreneur is and why you should want to become one. It teaches you how to "kill" your job and design a life, the 80/20 rule and how it increases productivity, how to replace your dreams with goals, and more. Listeners can lead a rich life by working only four hours a week, freeing up the rest of their time to spend it living the lives they want.

    Tim says: "Some good ideas but, not so sure. . ."

    Overall

    As the saying goes, you can learn something from everyone.

    Narration was poor - can't believe the number of times he read http:// or www - please - if you don't know how to find a website, you wouldn't be listening to audible.

    Loved his ideas on purging the unimportant - i.e. news, tv, etc. He's dead on. Building processes in a business to limit email - Amen! Virtual assistants - genius.

    On the other hand, suggesting that people lie or work less to "prove" that remote work is more productive is the cry of someone who lacks character.

    In short - good book by a bad person. Probably a better book to read due to the narration but well worth either due to some great ideas. Just don't get sucked into compromising standards.

    Still can't get over that he would actually brag about winning the contest by finding loopholes. A man of integrity would return the trophy.

    Peter Schweizer decided to investigate in depth the private lives of prominent liberals, to examine whether they lived by the principles they so forcefully advocate. What he found was a long list of contradictions. Schweizer's conclusion is simple: liberalism in the end forces its adherents to become hypocrites. Schweizer's book thus exposes the contradiction at the core of liberalism: If these ideas don't work for the very individuals who promote them, how can they work for the country?

    Great information! Sad we don't have people in the media making such observations.
