By drawing on his decades of experience working with small-business owners, Michael Gerber is adding to his mega-selling E-Myth series with The E-Myth Accountant. This installment provides a one-of-a-kind system for transforming an accountant’s practice into a business positioned for long-term growth.
This is the next installment in the series of E-Myth handbooks developed specifically for key industries. As with previous titles, The E-Myth Accountant has distilled small-business advice that specifically caters to this business segment. Although business owners know everything about their trade, very few know how to effectively run a business—the void that Michael Gerber can fill with his powerful advice. In Gerber’s signature easy-to-understand, easy-to-implement style, he addresses such specific aspects of the business as money, people, management, and growth.

“This book offers powerful and practical direction from two business leaders that will change your personal and professional lives.” (Mike Sabbatis, president and CEO, CCH)
If you are trying to change your firm and want to start thinking outside the box, this reading is a great place to start.
An inspiring and challenging call to action for accountants who are stuck being technicians. There's hope. The challenges are strategic so there's lots of questions and and general guidance, all of which are very helpful, but I think most accountants would be wanting a greater level of specificity in examples. If you own your own practice or thinking about it, this is a good listen. It's narrated by the authors which I rarely find is best, and this is no different. It would benefit from professinal narration.
Yes, because, in the same way that basketball players don't go to practice once and win games, and church goers don't just go to one Sunday and then have the bible completely memorized, good principles should be constantly reviewed and re-visited, and this book is something all accountants and business owners should re-visit regularly to keep their ships on coarse.
The Foreman in the jungle. :-) I can relate to workload he realistically sees in front of him, and how it can be very different from the owners distant high level view of the whole picture. I love this parable as it reminds me to remember to zoom out and see the whole picture and remember to align myself with the overall mission.
Engaging & Stellar. :-)
Can't wait to apply more of these principles to the business I work for.
This is the way all accountants should run their businesses
It is hard to pick just one
The interaction of the two readers was excellent
None in particuaar - too many to rate
I hoped to learn some accounting methods. The introduction was so heavily into accounting businesses failures that I gave up.
"Not that great"
This book is beyond simple. Too much time is spent on teaching and less on exploring - narrator is boring - I am not sure you should waste your time on this if you want to market your practice much better way to get on and do it.
"The how was missing"
Cannot beat a general E myth book. Talks in broad terms without any detail. The how was the missing ingredient.
