Mostly useless...

There were 1 or 2 bits of good information in here, which may make it worth the relatively low price, but overall I was pretty unhappy with the content. It seemed more like an hour-and-a-half plug for the physical book, rather than a book unto itself. What content there was, was so general as to be almost entirely useless.

Keeping them Dumb

I was expecting to get some good information and a reality check out of this book. It has been deleted off of my MP3 Player because this is all information that I have firmly planted in my mind from other resources what they are teaching and the reality check is at the expense of encouragement, a positive attitude, or feeling good in general. I turn this Audio Book feeling worse then when I started usually. My recommendation to small business owners is go to your local Small Business Development Center. Their services are free and they are more encouraging then this audio book.
