A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

Built to sell is the thrust of the book. Flipping your business. Clear and concise instructions.
I was looking for either general sales/marketing advice or becoming less “working in my business, but working on my business” - neither concepts are covered.
If your goal is to sell the business you own though ... this is a fantastic book for that.

Not great. Not bad. Average. Nothing in the book stood out except the beginning. Wasn’t very inspiring. To the contrary, found it to be a drag - somewhat sad. The trials of an entrepreneur that stuck with it. That’s every entrepreneur. Lots of punches taken, perseverance, but no real happiness or inspiration, or lessons, or other helpful information. Just a struggle story.

The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster will prepare you for the wild ride of entrepreneurship. It will warn you (of forthcoming fears, doubts, and the self-defeating conditioning of your upbringing and past), inoculate you (from the naysayers, dream-stealers, and pains of rejection and failure), and guide you (as you build those under-developed skills of independence, self-motivation, and self-accountability) safely past the landmines that blow up and cause the failure of 66 percent of all new businesses.

Left unfinished at the time of his death, The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin has endured as one of the most well-known and influential autobiographies ever written. From his early years in Boston and Philadelphia to the publication of his Poor Richard's Almanac to the American Revolution and beyond, Franklin's autobiography is a fascinating, personal exploration into the life of America's most interesting founding father.

Great sayings at the end cannot make up for the terribly boring life account. The biography by Walter Isaacson is far superior. On the other hand, the narrator of this book outshined the work significantly.

Late in the 26th century, the human race has advanced enough to accidentally trigger the Inhibitors---alien-killing machines designed to detect intelligent life and destroy it. The only hope for humanity lies in the recovery of a secret cache of doomsday weapons---and a renegade named Clavain who is determined to find them. But other factions want the weapons for their own purposes---and the weapons themselves have another agenda altogether.

In Character Building are 37 addresses that Booker T. Washington gave before students, faculty, and guests at the Tuskegee Institute. These addresses take the form of timeless advice on a number of subjects. These talks are delivered - in the motivational and uplifting manner one would expect from this American icon - on education, ethics, morals, deportment, spirituality, and the dignity of labor.

The narrator is great, but the content is very poor. Most of the content is focused on the college the speeches were written for. Very little of the book is actually focused on “character”. The book is a bait and switch. When the speech is not focused on the school, it’s about race and not about character. It seemed apparent to me the high ratings of the book are given as support for a racial leader rather than as a true critique of the substance of the material - which is greatly lacking and deceptively titled.

Simple, but great idea - that could have been amply states and explained in 30 minutes. The addition of “story” elements to a simple list wastes time. Narrator was subpar - trying to inject excite into a rather boring and cardboard tasting story dialogue.
