Publisher's Summary

In this audio edition of the totally revised underground best seller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business, from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed, and shows how to apply the lessons of franchising to any business, whether or not it is a franchise. Finally, Gerber draws the vital, often overlooked distinction between working on your business and working in your business. After you have listened to The E-Myth Revisited, you will truly be able to grow your business in a predictable and productive way.

    "Changed how I looked at business forever!"

    Before this book I had no idea what I even took to run a business. I had no idea what I didn't know!

    "essential for current or future business owner"

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

    If you have a business or plan to start one then you have to listen to this book!

    "Exactly what I needed. Excellent narration."

    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.

    "What a joke"

    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.
