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.

Saved my Life

I am a small business owner just like the woman he describes in the book. After listening for 20 minutes I felt hope for my business, by the end of the book I had a plan in action to turn that hope into prosperity. This book saved my business and my sanity.

E-Myth Revisited Review

Excellent read and recommend listening to it once a year. Challenges small business owners to work yourself out of your job and to delegate. In order to build a self sufficient company with total freedom, one must develop systems that the "least" qualified employee in your organization can follow. It's all about the SYSTEMS in your company.

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.

This sounds like the Hubbard management system

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This book is good for people who don't have a clue about business, structure or organising their live.It is not good for people who have managed, know business skills or looking for an insight to gain an edge.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I didn't find it interesting.

However this may be because I have an MBA and I have been a part of similar coaching Hubbard Management programs which I was not impressed with.

I have found the Hubbard Management system not to be in line with my beliefs or personal practices.

Some people may really respond to this story and the way they tell allegorical tales to illustrate the point.

The good key takeaway is build your business to sell, OR just be happy being employed.

Did Michael E. Gerber do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

The speaker told the tale well - reminded me of the old "read-along story time" voice actors. Great voice for radio. very nostalgic.

Did The E-Myth Revisited inspire you to do anything?

Focus on systems and reread my MBA notes on McDonalds and the franchise theory. There are better books out there for "franchise" models and building a business to sell which is the underlying theme of the book.

Any additional comments?

This book is not a bad book, I would recommend this to people who have read business books before or have any training in management. It is a great segue into understanding you don't know much about running a business. Maybe look to investing in an MBA or getting a business coach.

Fluff and repetition

This book could be a quarter of the size if the overly emotional narratives and alliteration were removed. There are a few bits of helpful wisdom in there but one needs to wade deep through some heavy drivel.
