A step-by-step guide to enjoying the roller-coaster ride of growth - while getting the most out of life as an entrepreneur. A growth-focused approach: The book is divided into three sections, which cover planning for fast growth, building a company for fast growth, and leading for fast growth. Each topic the author covers - from creating a vision for the company's future to learning how to generate free PR for a developing company - is squarely focused on the end goal: doubling the size of the entrepreneur's company in three years or less. A down-to-earth action plan: Herold's experienced-based advice never gets bogged down in generalities or theory. Instead he offers a wealth of practical tips, including: How to design meetings for maximum efficiency; how to hire top-quality talent; how to grow in particularly tough markets; how to put together a board of advisors - even for a smaller company; and how even the busy entrepreneur can achieve a work/life balance.

The fact the author gave real life situations AND solutions. I have read a lot of books that give a generic or such a general response that they don't really help those in need. This book was great all the way through and gave details on how to resolve certain issues and some useful tools, of which, I now use one called Teamly on a daily basis and it has elevated my game at work.
Rockefeller Habits or any of the Lencioni books because they all provide the story and the action items.
Yes it was.
I stopped this book about a quarter into it. It has a lot of good advice, but it's seems very canned from things I've heard before. E.g. Visualize your future, write S.M.A.R.T. goals, etc. I was hoping more concrete advice coming from real experience, not the same old rehashed stuff.
A little bit. The Narrator was good but you could tell he was reading.
Nope. Stopped it quarter the way through.
"Really awful automated speech"
I love audio books so opted for the audio version of this book - error!
I have only been listening for just over 4 minutes but I can't bare to listen to it anymore. The book is being narrated by an automated speech programme and it is truly awful.
I have bought lots of audio books in the past most of them read by the author. On the whole this adds value and a much more personal experience for the person buying the book but in this instance it has detracted so much from my experience of this book, which is a real shame.
I can't comment on the content of the book (I understand from other users that it is very good) as I have not got beyond the introduction but on the format alone I would recommend that you don't buy this - stick to the printed version.
