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.

    "An inspirational and informative book"

    This book is an absolute must read for anyone thinking about starting a business or has started a small business. It's exceptionally well written in a student/teacher story line that does not get in the way of the lessons of the book but compels you to read on to see how things end up.

    This book was an eye-opener for me. It showed me a new way of thinking about starting a business - a way that nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit. It's interesting, fun, inspiring and just packed with new ways of thinking and ideas for moving forward. This book encourages you to think big.

    "Ignore the critics"

    This book is excellent, the point is to grasp the concepts outlined. If you don't care for the rhetoric and storyline that is added for interest then see through it to the methodical processes that Gerber eloquently describes throughout this book. This is the kind of book that should be listened to while paying careful attention to the details discussed and taking notes, use these concepts and you will be successful!

    "Very good"

    This book is a combination of entrepreneurship insights with business creation processes. The narration is very good and keeps the listener entertained. Also it suggests that if the business is built in a given way, it cannot fail, showing traps to avoid when building a new business. Very insightful and nice to listen to.

    "Best audio book ever"

    In one word: WOW. This book is a MUST for anyone considering running a business or those who have done so wish to see the system from 'outside', and become tenfold more successful. Sometimes a bit too poetic, but gets the point through with it with fantastic ideas, structures and hints. Excellent piece!
