    Story
    "Very basic not for experienced people"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book would be fine for people just starting out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by William Manchee again?

    Probably not.


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    Performance for this type of book is not all that critical.


    What did you take away from Go Broke, Die Rich that you can apply to your work?

    He mentioned some interesting things on bankruptcy protection. But frankly I got bored with it and put it down.

    Story
    "Just permission to go bankrupt"

    I got this book because it advertised itself as explaining how to "turn around a troubled small business." It turns out that the only solution that Manchee has to offer is bankruptcy. There are hardly any useful suggestions for how to turn your business around if you are barely braking even, and only addresses situations where people were so deeply in debt from irresponsibility or unfortunate circumstances that there was no solution for Superman William Manchee to step in and tell them to declare bankruptcy. Awesome. My business is not in debt and has not missed any bills, but profits have been less than stellar. As a responsible borrower and business owner who is looking for tips to improve my business and avoid needing Mr. Manchee's services, I found the book extremely depressing. Unless you're already planning on filing for bankruptcy and just need permission to do it, then skip this book. You will be worse for having read it.

    Story
    "Chapter 11! Chapter 13!"

    The book is well spoken, one of the less annoying narrators I've heard. Its a good subject, but all from an American lawyer's point of view. So there's a lot of talk about USA bankruptcy terms that are different elsewhere in the world. Going on about Chapter 11 & 13. So I'm listening to hours of this , hoping for some useful info, not lots.
    But essentially I'd recommend this to a small business in the USA thinking about going bankrupt or trying not to.
