"Few people have done more to inspire an entrepreneur revolution and give entrepreneurs the tools and advice they need to grow their businesses in recent years than Dan. What I love about what he says and what he writes is that it all comes from a deep personal experience of bootstrapping a successful global small business himself from little more than a maxed out credit card." (Mike Harris, Founder of FirstDirect and Egg PLC, author of Find Your Lightbulb)
"Daniel’s book is a brilliant resource to help entrepreneurs ‘find their place’ and live the ‘entrepreneur revolution dream’." (Alistair Lukies, CEO of Monitise)
"Daniel Priestley’s book Entrepreneur Revolution perfectly teaches how to adopt an enterprising, street-smart mindset that produces results. His own failures, like mine, have taught him valuable and practical down-to-earth lessons which any aspiring leaders can learn from and will enjoy trying and applying themselves."

Having worked with him for many years now, I can clearly see his unique ability to intuitively identify a collective need and provide a completely innovative solution, always at the right time and in the right place."

"This book will totally change the way you think about growing a business. An absolute must read that should be in the hands of more people." (Jeremy Harbour, author of Go Do!)
Absolutely. It is a wonderful book, especially to anyone who is thinking of becoming an entrepreneur. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I am currently listening to it for the 2nd time, some parts i've heard about 7 times.
Haven't read any books that compare yet.
Excellent reading by Glen McCready.
I think the title is perfect, gripping: Entrepreneur Revolution, sounds like Atlas Shrugged.
I am directing a Municipal Entrepreneurship Center in a developing country. Needless to say, the challenges we are facing are huge, but so are the opportunities. I am also a mentor for this center, and I have to admit sometimes I run out of ideas. That is until I downloaded this audiobook. It is completely filled with valuable tips, strategies and insights that I have found very helpful. From the "product ecosystem" to the "7 maxims" that every entrepreneur should follow, I enjoyed every second. I absolutely recommend it for anyone who is thinking about joining the entrepreneur revolution.
Yes. It was filled with so many insights and valuable pieces of information that it will take more than one sitting to fully digest!
"Stop reading other peoples books and writ your own!"
Clear and matter of fact.
Yes. Had to space it over two days though..
Highly recommend this book for everyone. It opens a vision of an abundant life possible to those willing to put the effort in, and with access to a little luck..
I’ve been toying with the concept of an entrepreneurial venture for quite some time. This book has given me the inspiration and an process to implement an action plan. I’ve now listened to the book twice, and I plan to re-listen to it multiple times throughout my process.
Easy to understand.
Why not the "Entrepreneurial Revolution"? It was intriguing enough for me to buy the audio book.
The content and the fact that it is relevant to my way of life and thought. I want to work on my own for myself, so I picked up this book. The ATM seems helpful.
Accentuation of the text. Not a flat reader. Much appreciated.
The entrepreneur revolution - How to make it on your own.
Love the breakdown of the different models and phases to becoming an entrepreneur. Many things that I've been grappling with and considering, Daniel lays out very simply. Daniel encourages you to read / listen to the book more than once. I've already done it three times and will definitely do it again! Thanks Daniel.
This audiobook was interesting with some great ideas and an excellent narrator. I am an audible member and listen to business audiobooks regularly. Some of them are drab, yet this one definitely kept my attention throughout. Kudos to the author and audiobook narrator. Well done!
It is very easy to follow, and well laid-out. The narrator is easy to listen to. The book left me feeling excited about my future and the potential to brighten it. Not that a book can DO anything for you...you must do it yourself...but it certainly helps challenge you to think about your future and to take action. At the end of the day, though, it's up to you to take the action.
Yes, I'd have loved to do it all in one sitting.
Every point Daniel makes in the book just seemed to click. Put his ideas into practice and you begin to see instant results, or at least I did.
When Daniel talked about the Lizard, Monkey, and Empire Building mindsets it really stuck with me and I realized most people live their lives as "Lizards" or "Monkeys". Once you decide to live like an "Empire Builder" and really strive for that, it changes everything.
Glen McCready's voice is perfect for this book, I never became bored or distracted at any point. His voice is easy to listen to and I'd honestly prefer him over many of the other narrators you find with audiobooks.
The "Ten Challenges" are a great part of the book that really made me sit back and assess myself and how I live my life. I am going to have to listen to the chapter that covers them a few times and continually try and strive towards accepting these challenges.
A great read, superb in fact. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.
I am so happy to find this audiobook here. The book is full of useful information and practical advises. It tells you what to do and almost coaches you how to. Really great!
A very insightful and practical book that has changed the way I view my business and the opportunities that our global market has... A must read for anyone at any stage of business to thrive in the new economy. It has helped me focus on the joy of creating and not consuming, plus given me a strategic road map to bring greater value to my clients and profit to my bottom line. Thanks Daniel!
"Not for me"
I enjoyed the opening few chapters which were positive and full of enthusiasm but I'm afraid once the book got practical, it lost me. I realised pretty quickly that I'm not an "entrepreneur" in the sense of this book, even though I've set up and run 4 successful businesses in the past decade. I have no desire to create a global business or to have great wealth. My businesses are there to support my way of life.
The idea of walking around with £1,000 in my pocket just so I can refuse to buy things I could get with that wad of cash is, for me, totally ludicrous. The idea of making 3 calls randomly, inviting a stranger to lunch etc etc. Nope. Even more crazy is the contention that I need to price my core product at £1,000+. I sell craft kits. Lots of them. But none cost a grand.
By the terms of this book, I'm an abject failure. Fortunately for me, I'm a happy one.
The narration is pretty good - nice to have an English accent for a change. He does sound a little like C3PO when played at 1.5x speed.
The book met all my expectations and more, I felt really inspired, excited and enlightened. The author gives you so many things to think about with regards to becoming an entrepreneur.
It makes your mind think about opportunities, tells you how to execute your idea. Gives you tips and tricks that would save you a lot of time. Finally it helps you assess what stage you are in the entrepreneurial route. This is useful because when you stumble across challenges, you will be ready to over come them knowing how much more effort is required to achieve the end goal. I would highly recommend this book.
"Let the revolution begin!"
The first thing that drew me in to the book was the cover. I exclaimed out loud when I first saw it because it is so striking and powerful.
The message doesn't disappoint. In fact throughout the book I found myself nodding along in agreement to many of the points raised. Two points that stand out: 1) Consumption consumes energy and creation supplies energy. 2) Businesses that do well and will do well are founded in love.
Once you figure out exactly what your love is, hold tight and do not let go!
This book is full of excellent tips, direction, strategies, hope and kindness. If you are reading this review then I highly recommend reading or listening to the Entrepreneur Revolution. After finishing 2014 feeling a bit lost with my own personal Entrepreneur revolution I am now looking to 2015 with excitement, direction and certainty. We listened to this during a 10 hour drive to Scotland and it certainly made the journey enjoyable and enlightening. We expect that, in a year or two, we will be making the same journey in style thanks to Mr Daniel Priestly taking the time to create this book!
"I'm starting my journey right now!!"
I loved the motivation & inspiration that this book can bring out of you!!
I'm starting my journey right now.
This book is so inspiring I cannot believe I was so lucky to actually stumble upon it at the point of my life when I need it the most.
I will be raving about this book to all my friends and family for a very long time.
"I recommend this book to any aspiring entrepreneur"

Chapter 5 is my personal favourite TEN CHALLENGES TO KICKSTART YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL TALENTS. I still struggle with challenge no 1
This book is a must read for any entrepreneur.

"An inspiring read for entrepreneurs"
I've been able to listen to this whilst at work and I don't often get the time to sit down and read factual books so being able to listen is great for me
I already have a small company that continues to develop and I could see how I could apply some of these ideas to it with a little help and guidance
I think he read well with all the intonations in the right places
No, its too long. Listening to it in several sittings gives you a chance to digest what has been said and think about the application
Thanks Daniel Priestley for writing an inspiring and useful book that I can apply to my business
"Business for the modern age"
Yes. A deep and powerful book that has the most practical advice and insights into how to create a successful modern-day business. Daniel Priestley is on a mission to have people take control of their lives through entrepreneurship - I kid you not.
The human brain for entrepreneurs. One of the most practically useful models of the human psyche that I've read. What stops us, what motivates us, how we can be so destructive, and yet capable too of reaching extraordinary heights.
Perfect narration. Clear and easy to listen.
Yes. About the only business book to have that effect!
Read it a number of times to get the most from it.
