    "Don't waste your money"

    This book is completely outdated and only the first few minutes are about a consulting business. The rest of the book is nothing more than general business principles most of which don't even apply to a service business like consulting.

    "not worth it"

    I enjoyed the first 45 minutes. Then I noticed the word "consulting" dropped completely. Then I notice that this audio book is just a compilation of articles on Entrepreneur most of which I am familiar with. Compared to "Small Business Bible" a real audio book this is just popular business ideas put together not worth the $41.00 I paid.
    I think this is a new selling technique like Movie Trailer Syndrome. Watch the movie trailer and you have seen the best of the movie, Free. This audio book is like that. But thinking about it what can 3hr + tell you about business?

    "If you want to know about the field aviod this one"

    Not much information about the field it self and more information about how to establish a consulting office.I expected more information about the business, historical overview and recent changes but I was wrong.

    "Incomplete Book"

    The book had some good basic information, but the appendices were not included. The author/reader made several references to the "good and more advanced information" that could be used by the book buyer that were in the appendices. The appendices are not included in the download.
