need to step up the quality

If you could sum up How to Run Your Business by The Book in three words, what would they be?

good references, bad audio,

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

ever hear of audio editing? the lip smacks between each breath makes it hard to listen to, very annoying.

Pleasantly Surprised

I had never heard of this author and wasn't sure I should give him a try with the lack of reviews. I was pleasantly surprised as it was exactly what I was looking for! I wanted an organized business look of what the Bible says in many areas about business. I loved all the scriptures that were pulled together to give a compact and engaging picture of what the Bible has to say about many areas of business. I'm excited to purchase the follow up book to this one.

He wasn't my favorite person (not bad though) to listen to but I was able to look past that for the content. I would recommend this book. Even if you don't look to the Bible as a Christian, this book still has fantastic wisdom.

Needs better sound and editing

The background and vocal foibles (like smacking the gums) should be edited and redone as needed. Too much attention to detail can take more time than it’s worth for a quick non-fiction like this, but it still needs another once over and probably a bigger investment in sound equipment. It’s good kind of extended sermon that feels like it’s being read aloud to you at the kitchen table.

Great biblical lesson for non-Christians applied to business

I’m not Christian but highly spiritual. For the most part the lessons taught in the context of the Bible, the leaders and the stories are highly impactful and transferable to so many other areas of life whether that be relationships, sports, service, or leading your kids and family. Sometimes you can hear people snatch a quote out the Bible and feel concern if they are just using a snippet to make their point but because Dave Anderson gives greater context the point/interpretation is so effective.

I really appreciated this book and simply didn’t give it a 5-star because some challenging points (particularly on debt and partnerships), but challenging is good as it makes us all think and appreciate the variety God put in this earth.
