    "Good"

    Book is good. Did not go deep enough for me. Am going to re-read for key points because Urdu time through did not have any huge moments of "wow that's huge". Loved Mikes Pumpkin Plan book - one of best books have ever read.

    "Mike hits it again"

    Mike has a natural ability for business acumen and he is able to put pen to paper and voice to audio book to clearly and effectively provide a message for action.

    I'm looking forward to Mike producing more quality audio books, so much so that I'll pre order them when they are available.

    Story
    "An entertaining and actionable read"
    Where does Surge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Mike Michalowicz is one of the most entertaining authors to read his book. His passion and personality really come through. There is so much extra content and stories that I always listen to his books first, then I get the book to highlight, put in notes and actions I will take.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Surge?

    The visions of surfing. Too often I view the idea of business as paddling harder instead of finding where business is going and join int.


    What does Mike Michalowicz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mike's passion and humor really come through.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen at 1.5x so I was able to get it done in one glorious day


    Any additional comments?

    Mike has a wisdom that come through. After reading one book, you will want to read all of Mike's books.

    Story
    "Want to go farther, have more fun creating a business that can become a phenomenon? Surge is the ticket!"

    In the last 2 years I've listened to over one thousand hours of business and personal development audio books. In my opinion Mike's content and delivery is at the top of my list. I learned of Mike Michalowicz last year when I watched a TedTalk and watched a creativelive class he taught. What's great about Mike? Mike's style is engaging, down to earth and his self deprecating humor makes him approachable... And last but not least, his content is fresh and packed with his own real world experience. I've listened to and read a couple of Mike's other books, and I can say without reservation that Mike lives what he teaches. Just email him. When I reached out to him, I got a personal reply from him within 20mins. (What other in-demand author does that?!!) Mike is on his surge and teaches you to spot, and ride and master yours.

    "Another great book!"

    This book has given me quite a few different ideas on what I can do to grow my business. If you aren't familiar with his other books Mike's books are an excellent resource for the small Business owner.
