Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Michael Gerber's The E-Myth Revisited should be required listening for anyone thinking about starting a business or for those who have already taken that fateful step. The title refers to the author's belief that entrepreneurs--typically brimming with good but distracting ideas--make poor businesspeople. He establishes an incredibly organized and regimented plan, so that daily details are scripted, freeing the entrepreneur's mind to build the long-term success or failure of the business. You don't need an M.B.A. to understand or follow its directives; Gerber takes time to explain buzzwords and complex theories. Read in a clear and well-paced manner, listening to The-E Myth is like receiving advice from an old friend. --Sharon Griggins --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From Library Journal

Indicating that 40 percent of small businesses fail within their first year, Gerber, a small business expert, talks about how to be successful. In this revision of his 1986 book, he describes the "E-Myth," which basically states that a person with technical but few management skills can do well in business. Gerber describes developing a precise business system that produces consistent results because it has been tested and refined. He says that businesses thrive because of innovation, quantification, and orchestration. Visualize what is true success to you as a person, Gerber advises, and work from the ideal to the specific. While the author is a consumate salesman who reads his material in soothing tones, he offers too many abstract ideas and too few concrete plans. There is little useful content here. Not recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for entrepreneurs and a must-read book…
Reviewed in India on July 11, 2019
This book can be divided in 2 sections: One being the entrepreneur myths which I loved about the book that how well the concerns were addressed.

The second section was completely turning the self-employed business to franchise model which I can call it as so…so for me as I was expecting more illustration apart from restaurant franchise.

Giving it 4 stars just because the name of the book is quite appealing but the recipe in the book is not that spicy.

It is a must buy if you are or want to be in franchise business model.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pirated Book. Don’t buy. Amazon is breeding piracy.
Reviewed in India on March 10, 2020
I bought 4 books together about a month back and I just started reading this one. This book is full of typos, poor alignment, varying font heights and odd spaces within words. It is a shoddy job even for piracy. I’ve put up images showing all the defects.
You know that feeling you get when you are deeply engrossed in reading a chapter and suddenly an odd spelling mistake or typo jumps out and diverts your attention killing the flow, forcing you to go back a few lines and re-establish the context.. this is exactly that kind of a book. A pure kill-joy. Maybe it’s my OCD but I’m sure it applies in some way or the other to everyone.
Never knew that Amazon would advocate piracy of books. I guess that’s what you get when things are sold cheaper than they should be.
Sad thing is Amazon won’t let me return/exchange the product as it is out of the return period policy.
The money is not much but this should be an eye opener for you guys out there. Please buy from your local bookstore. Touch, feel and read a few pages before you buy.
Hope this helps!
Please thumbs-up this comment if you want to stop piracy!
