    "Mostly useless..."

    There were 1 or 2 bits of good information in here, which may make it worth the relatively low price, but overall I was pretty unhappy with the content. It seemed more like an hour-and-a-half plug for the physical book, rather than a book unto itself. What content there was, was so general as to be almost entirely useless.

    "Keeping them Dumb"

    I was expecting to get some good information and a reality check out of this book. It has been deleted off of my MP3 Player because this is all information that I have firmly planted in my mind from other resources what they are teaching and the reality check is at the expense of encouragement, a positive attitude, or feeling good in general. I turn this Audio Book feeling worse then when I started usually. My recommendation to small business owners is go to your local Small Business Development Center. Their services are free and they are more encouraging then this audio book.

    "Only 3 of 22 Chapters..."
    What disappointed you about Small Business for Dummies, 2nd Edition?

    Nowhere in the description did this say that abridged meant that it was missing 9/10s of the print copy. It includes only three of the twenty-two chapters of the actual book. Basically useless and should be free if anything.

    This was my my first and last Audible book. Disappointed.
