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.

    "essential for current or future business owner"

    I listened at 1.25x. The author reads way to slow for me. With that adjustment it was great.

    If you have a business or plan to start one then you have to listen to this book!

    "Exactly what I needed. Excellent narration."

    This book is packed, so it's best to take it in chuncks, not rush through it. However, it has excellent narration by the author, Michael Gerber. And it's written in such a way that it flows well and the ideas makes sense in context. It was exactly what I needed.

    "What a joke"

    Your final chapter is the biggest insult to the profession of sales I have ever heard. Your logic that every entrepreneur somehow magically knows how to do everything better than professionals in every aspect of business is an insult To every profession. Let's just write a process. It's really that simple. Forget hiring pending people that have made a career out of studying accounting, marketing, sales, management or anything else. Just right s process book and hire anyone off the street and they will follow your system.

    "Small business owners - you must listen to this!"
    Where does The E-Myth Revisited rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    We all get bogged down in the doing. This book explains why and what to do about it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Practical application.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because you need to ponder the ideas being suggested. It's better to listen to a chapter, think and then move on. But you also want to go back and listen to it again.

    "3rd time of reading, 1st time of listening."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A super business book.

    If you run a small business as I do, read this book as it'll give you a reality check.

    This audible version is easily the best format for this very worthwhile book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very sound advice for anyone running their own business.

    "Insightful. The ideas behind the success of a small business. Your business."

    A must read for all small businesses starting out and for those small businesses that have become all consuming and overwhelming. This book will give you the ideas needed to enable you to set up your business in the best possible way. Working on your business not in your business. Setting up the systems at the outset so that your business does not become another job, but once set up, allows you the freedom to live the life of your choosing.

    "Every small business owner should listen"

    This is a great book for small business owners. I run a number of businesses and advise many others (not as part of Emyth Worldwide, I should add!) and the themes covered in this book, the systems and processes it introduces are excellent. The only reason it isn't 5* is because the story is a little too sickly at times and the narration is too slow (like so many narrators). I listened on 1.25x to make it sound normal!

    Story
    "A book to mobilise."

    I found this book inspirational and motivational at the same time.
    It is well balanced in addressing some of the underlying reasons why people leave from their "9-5" employees status in order to experience another state of existence, as a business owner.
    Beginning with a character who finds her dream somewhat become a night mare through the pressure and demands of being a business owner, the book takes us on a well documented journey.
    It can become a little tedious at times, but I think some people will relate to those aspects even though I didn't.
    What I especially like is the meticulous and thorough way the author breaks down business development.
    As it comes to a conclusion the book then explores some of the philosophical benefits that can be derived both from being a business owner according to the proposed model, and also from using the mindset that you potentially stand to gain.
    A very good listen.

    "Just as relevant now as the first edition I read over a decade ago."

    Top class. Everything you need to turn your self employed 'job', into a life changing business that works for you whether you are there or not.

    Listening to Michael again has given me a sharp reminder to do the things I did before, that worked so well I stopped doing them.

    Story
    "Keep this one thought in mind from start to finish:"

    Are you in Business to make "pies" or in the Business of making "pies"?

    Substituting "pies" for whatever product, service or solution you offer or intend to offer.

    If by the end of the book you understand the fundamental difference between "in Business to" and "in the Business of" you'll be able to decide if you should start or be running a Business.

    Sometimes the most powerful ideas are the simplest propositions.

    I thank Michael for having written the book, am grateful to have stumbled upon it and wholeheartedly recommend it as a core tenant to any potential or existing Business owner.
