Don't waste your money

This book is completely outdated and only the first few minutes are about a consulting business. The rest of the book is nothing more than general business principles most of which don't even apply to a service business like consulting.

not worth it

I enjoyed the first 45 minutes. Then I noticed the word "consulting" dropped completely. Then I notice that this audio book is just a compilation of articles on Entrepreneur most of which I am familiar with. Compared to "Small Business Bible" a real audio book this is just popular business ideas put together not worth the $41.00 I paid.
I think this is a new selling technique like Movie Trailer Syndrome. Watch the movie trailer and you have seen the best of the movie, Free. This audio book is like that. But thinking about it what can 3hr + tell you about business?
