Love or Hate, Invaluable or Garbage... You Decide
on March 26, 2005
This book is a natural buy if you, like me, have read E-Myth: Revisited and absolutely loved it. This book is full of invaluable information, however, it suffers from the greatest flaw ever - it is the most annoying and painstaking read ever!!!!!!!
Let me give you an example of what I mean by rewriting my first paragraph in this book's style:
This book is a natural buy if you, like me, like all the other entreprenuers out in the world, who like Susan from the first book, who wants to know more information, and join the thirty some thousand other entreprenuers like them, after you have read the first book E-Myth: Revisited, and absolutely loved it, thought that it was inspiring, insightful, and was written in a well thought out, interesting, easy to read way, and want to read more about building a world class company, one which is measurable to the likes of other world class companies, companies who have succeeded, companies who have applied these principles, who have leaders who understand these qualities and have the spirit, perserverence, energy, ability, vision, and committment to success, both personally and professionally.
90% FLUFF and 10% GOLD
But then again... the 10% is still pretty darn good if only you can stand reading through the other crap he writes. If the price of the book is in direct correlation to the number of words he writes then this book should be worth only like $2-3 dollars max because the rest is useless trash, garbage kept past the date of pickup, stinking of fish from two days earlier, of which you should have thrown out earlier rather than later, but of course you did not for you procrastinated, took your jolly good time, rested when you should have worked, gotten off your lazy ass, to throw this trash away, yesterday, the day the trash was to be picked up by the trash man...
Damn... I'm infected by this cursed writing style, this style which [SHUT UP!!!!!!]
I digress... buy it if you can stand this style of writing, of digressing, of adding more to a sentence, a style of clarifying things more than is needed, when things are clear they can be made clearer by adding more words, for the more words you add the clearer the meaning, the more words the less likely you will misunderstand... You know what I mean?
