The book will demonstrate and shall the reader how to install systems in the business so anyone can run it, then you will have a business, until then the owner/technician will only have a job. The systems, not the people will run the business and the business will do what it was designed to do. If anyone can run the business because of the systems then anyone can own it and it still will produce income for the owner and his employees. McDonalds is a great example of systems put in place will determine the desired outcome(not the people).
The book will change the way you think of your small business and how to organize the business so you can attain a level of success and freedom. There are only two reasons to own a business to have freedom and to sell it one day.
This is by no means a pandoras box of new ideas. These are fundamental business ideas communicated in a way that are unforgettable and change the way you may have thought about critical business improvment issues. This style of communication give credit to the authors exceptional method of storytelling.
The Entreprenural Myth discovers and alludes plainly what each us may have thought about running a business and the trappings that may occur. This book also exposes our pre-disposition toward actions which may lead to failure and how the formation of our ideas about business are based upon our ego and mis-information.
Ultimately it's well worth the money, and it's a shame that it isn't in print any more. Even though it was written decades ago, and long before the Internet made everyone decide to be an entrepreneur, his insights are valuable for all types of companies...
Worth its weight in gold. Sound advice. Requires mental discipline.
