    "Worth the Listen"

    I had a hard time getting into it at first, but it made some great points I'll take with me the rest of my life.

    "amazing"

    this is not a book on how to run a business, or how to start a business, but to stay and keep going with your business. This book puts everything into perspective, and anyone can gain something from this no matter the experience!

    "Very enjoyable"

    I really enjoyed the majority of the book. I did skip most of chapter seven because it didn't apply to me as much. I will definitely listen again.

    "Extremely inspirational"

    It met my expectations and so much more. It taught me so much while keeping my attention the whole time, and this is coming from someone who very easily losses it.

    "A must for craftsmen entering the business world"

    The layout from the beginning of my entrepreneurial seizure to 24 years later is in many ways so identical the book it is pathetic I didn't read it before now! If the thought is to head out on your own Read this one, understand the content, reread until you do or DON'T JUMP.

    "Helpful for Business but too Spiritual"

    I appreciated the practical business wisdom but I did not care for the spirituality and unknown theology - It was actually what made me end the book early. Mr Gerber you are wise with business but I felt like I got the old bait and switch when your theology seemed to become the primary focus of your book. It would have been nice to replace all the spirituality with tactical recommendations on how implement your recommendations instead of keeping the book at the level of theoretical concepts. Overall it's a three star because of the aforementioned. I'd recommend Dave Ramsey Entreleadership instead of this - they both are getting at the same thing.
