While this is the first time I've been motivated to write a review, I have been an Audible subscriber for over five years and have listened with pleasure to many many books, both literature, business titles, and the occasional motivational program. While I wouldn't recommend everything I have chosen, I have never felt a selection was bad enough to strongly warn others away.
This book, however, is horrible. If I could I would rate it a zero. The title is misleading. The authors seemed to want to write a self-help motivational book, but must have thought a title involving internet businesses would sell better. In ninety minutes I have received no value from anything that has been said (a very difficult feat). It has been a retreaded list of poorly written platitudes from motivational programs (picture your ideal job--picture your ideal day --allow yourself to be successful). The comments on internet business have been useless and obvious to anyone who has been exposed to a cumulative two hours of business news or business periodicals in the last decade. I'm not kidding -- the most informative sentence thus far has been "76% of businesses (in a cited survey, not independent research) report having an internet presence has enhanced their business." I don't want to diminish my credibility as a reviewer by sounding too snarky, but I'm not pulling the worst thing I can find, that is really the most relevant item so far.
In summary, while I normally free ride and don't write reviews, the thought of someone else giving money to listen to something absolutely worthless motivated me to warn others away. Spend your credits elsewhere. If you are interested in this book, I believe Wikinomics or The Four Hour Workweek will help you think about internet businesses in a much more productive way than anything I have heard in this prize.

I agree - this book is some sort of mixture of motivational book for first-time entrepreneurs and a book concerning let say 'how to start your business for dimmies'. There are plenty of better books in each area. It is not wortwhile of prorposed price.
