I listened at 1.25x. The author reads way to slow for me. With that adjustment it was great.

the explanations and theories described in this book is a must read. The areas of concern that many people have are covered here.

This book is packed, so it's best to take it in chuncks, not rush through it. However, it has excellent narration by the author, Michael Gerber. And it's written in such a way that it flows well and the ideas makes sense in context. It was exactly what I needed.
Your final chapter is the biggest insult to the profession of sales I have ever heard. Your logic that every entrepreneur somehow magically knows how to do everything better than professionals in every aspect of business is an insult To every profession. Let's just write a process. It's really that simple. Forget hiring pending people that have made a career out of studying accounting, marketing, sales, management or anything else. Just right s process book and hire anyone off the street and they will follow your system.
I really liked this book as far as the main concepts go. it goes over some really important background info about why many small businesses don't work. it helped me understand my team better and better understand my role as the owner. thanks so much for writing this book!
