Simply the most endorsed start-up book ever written. Hailed by the academic community, New York Times best-selling authors, as well as established entrepreneurs. If you cannot afford to fail, this is the one book you want to listen to. Written by a 20-year serial entrepreneur, in a straightforward language with key takeaways and action steps, this book guides you through the rules to follow for starting a successful business.
A book worth reading over and over again. it's a manual for everybody intending to be in business.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A book with real content, and real advice, read by a real person. This was a rambling mess read by what sounded like a pretty smart robot.
What was most disappointing about Sean C. Castrina’s story?
There is no solid thread connecting the eight rules, which seem a bit too obvious and easily explained to bother writing a book about.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anthony Gettig?
A human being, any human being. I am not kidding when I say that I believe that "Anthony Gettig" is a piece of computer software. The unusual rhythm and pronunciation is robotic and jarring, making a bad book completely unlistenable.
What character would you cut from 8 Unbreakable Rules for Business Start-Up Success?
I would cut the narrator, because he hints at all of his entrepreneurial success, but annoyingly doesn't go into any details.
Any additional comments?
I have never felt the need to return an audiobook until now, but there is a first time for everything. Watching a Jersey Shore marathon would be a better use of 4 hours.

I downloaded this book after hearing reviews that it was an essential read. Although I got a few good ideas from it, it's pretty basic and aimed at people in the beginning stages of a business.
My main gripe is that it's best suited to regular businesses like restaurants and not for lean tech startups. It preaches a lot of non-lean traditional advice that buries you in planning before you even begin.
