    In 1998, three Harvard Business School graduates - two men and one woman - turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves, and launched their own new companies. By their 10-year reunion, their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders did it.

    Story
    What would have made The Intelligent Entrepreneur better?

    A focus on business and not the backstory of the entrepreneur. Sure, some details might be interesting, but I do not need to hear a solid 5 minutes about subject Y's apartment hunt or that subject X read romance novels in 7th grade math class.
    The author's idea to make the subject of successful entrepreneurs more interesting by getting to know them before and after their success is such a complete failure that it actually makes me angry.


    Has The Intelligent Entrepreneur turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrator #2 is fine but narrator #1 is possibly the worst ever. The way he pronounces the word ENTREPRENEUR could make a nun punch an elderly woman in the face. He says the word with a w in it. Like, "entreprenewer." He actually adds a syllable. The word has 4. He says it with 5.
    The word is in the title of the book. No one checked the guys pronunciation? It's in the title. It's the main topic! He says it a thousand times!! And please don't respond with any excuses about dialects or accents. There is a correct way to pronounce the word. You want to hear one of the wrong ways? Buy this audio book.


    What character would you cut from The Intelligent Entrepreneur?

    The author.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back.
