    Being a successful business owner means more than knowing one's industry and understanding the basic concepts of leadership, management, or motivation. It means being able to master many areas of business, and knowing how each of these areas relate to and build on each other. It also means understanding how those areas change as a business goes through its inevitable life cycle, and how the owner must be prepared to change with them. The Facts of Business Life is the first book designed to provide listeners with the means of achieving the kind of long-term understanding that is the key to true and lasting success.

    What did you love best about The Facts of Business Life?

    The concepts and principles are generally clear and well thought out.


    Would you recommend The Facts of Business Life to your friends? Why or why not?

    Worth listening if you are either thinking of going into business for yourself or if you are struggling with making your business profitable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Brett Barry?

    Probably would listen to more of Brett's work but I'd recommend hiring a new editor.


    Any additional comments?

    I know that repetition is key to learning but when it's done in the way it has in this book, it makes you wonder if you've not already listened to that section of the book. If it wasn't for my want and will to be a good student of the core content, I'd probably never finished listening to it out of shear confusion. I kept asking myself, "didn't I just hear this chapter?" I think this may just be a matter of poor editing or poor executive writing skills (or maybe a writing coach?). Ok, repeat yourself but don't make your audience feel like you're a preverbal broken record.

    Still, all this said, if you can get past all that, the content is well founded, well thought out and a great wake up call to anyone thinking of starting a business, wanting to grow their business or suffering from all the normal roadblocks in making changes and improvements.

    A powerful and though-provoking exposé on the meat-eating industry and its emotional and environmental affects. A riveting exposé which presents the gut-wrenching truth about the price paid by the environment, the government, the Third World and the animals themselves in order to put meat on our tables more quickly and conveniently than ever before.

    What did you love best about Eating Animals?

    It would be because you are already a vegetarian. I've been semi conscious in my food choices for the past 12 years but now I have no choice but to change further how I eat even more. I dare you to really listen and not be impacted. Eat conciously.
