"I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

Entertaining for a while but then becomes like stretching the (non existing story) out to fill a book. Not bad for putting you to sleep if that's what you want.

From age 11, in 1974, until she left the show, in 1981, Melissa Anderson literally grew up before the viewers of Little House on the Prairie. Melissa, as Mary, is remembered by many as the blind sister - and she was the only actor in the series to be nominated for an Emmy. In The Way I See It, she takes listeners onto the set and inside the world of the iconic series created by Michael Landon, who, Melissa discovered, was not perfect, as much as he tried to be. In this memoir she also shares her memories of working with guest stars like Todd Bridges, Mariette Hartley, Sean Penn, Patricia Neal, and Johnny Cash.

I listened to more than half of this book in an attempt to allow the author to get to the point. More than half of what I listened to was rephrased repetition of what is covered I the first chapter and marketing material.
When I was buying this book I read the description and I thought I would get practical information on how to carry out SEO on my web site. Instead it just repeats a marketing message telling you to contact the author for advice. He refers to it as "feedback" but he is pointing you to a specific web address. He also tries to make you fearful of contacting other SEO specialists by repeating the things to be cautious of when finding an SEO consultant.
Do not buy this book. The only good thing is the narrator.

Contains active and sleepytime songs. The spanish Words used are simpl, we use it to reenforce spanish words with our 4 year old. The words are clearly spoken, and in most cases are spoken slow enough to to be interpreted by a beginner.

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.

Scientifically backed, Motivating, almost poetry. The story used to demonstrate the key messages gets a little old, but I am a big fan of the messages and how the book is written.
I started my own business and was told that business structure is important. But I thought that would come in time. Since my business failed I am now in a position to take this message to heart. The author hits the nail on the head! Listen to him. "Work on your business" its more important than working in it.
The idea of 3 people inside you is true too: technician, manager & leader.
Its VERY easy to allow your dominant side control you and your business.
I wish I had really understood this before I started my business.

This book starts with the primise that what you think is what you get. But it then explains this not from experiences but my having a one sided theology discussion. Every time a point is made it uses a real world exmple and then makes leaps from one concept to another without any foundation other than the debate sounds logical.

I would not recommend this book to anyone.
