some pretty good ideas...great presentation..

Visionary Business is a fable of a young man who's just started a business and found "Yoda-like" mentor/investor who guides him along the start-up path with sound advice on creating a business that means something. There's a lot of good, sound business advice here and it's presented story form, based on a medley of real people and events. The reader is good, too! Check it out!

an entrepreneur's

This is an excellent resource to inspire and remotivate any entrepreneur. Filled with precious "ah-hah" moments to give you clarity of purpose and put you back on track. I highly recommend this book for business owners who are committed to ethical business and making a difference.

Very bad sound quality and narration

The content of the book is not as much informative as it is entertaining and perhaps a bit inspiring. However there is a lack of concrete information if you are seriously looking to startup a business.

not a lot new here

especially if you have any grounding in metaphysics. Also, the narrator has a slight speech impediment which was irritating to me.

Emyth Revisited

A synopsis of Emyth, with metaphysics thrown in for good measure. Suggest sticking to the Gerber original.
