    Narration Is Just Fine

    A great, brief read. Full of fantastic case studies.

    Concerns over narration are overblown.

    Listen, and then do.

    don't buy in audio form

    The author should have hired someone to read. She drones on, I found her voice leaving me tired and depressed. She puts zero energy into the performance and it has a sarcastic, "see I'm right" undertone to it.

    Lacks Concrete Direction

    I consume a vast number of business books, how to's and others related to business. I am a small business owner and entrepreneur looking to grow. Employees are not on the agenda, been there, done that. Elaine Pofeldt's book held such promise as to offer insight and direction. No such luck. Nearly every case study has employees or contract workers. Many have had to borrow money to grow and out source their tasks. Over all this is a mildly positive book that might inspire you to move forward on your dream project but don't look to it for the stepping stones towards growth or ideas. Her reading voice was fine.

    Boring!

    This is truly in my top 5 of most boring books. Her voice is so monotone!

    Bunch of anecdotes

    This book as a bunch of anecdotes. These sound to me like several articles about successful enterpreneurs that were put together into one book. No material compared to 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris.

    Very basic guidance, and very poor narration.

    This entire effort would be better as a blog post. The author drives at the same handful of rudimentary points, citing 3 to 4 sources over and over, while stumbling over the narration. Save yourself the time, do a Google search for "entrepreneur tips."

    Added the audio a year or so later

    I've had the book for a while and neverade time to sit and push through. Not because of an issue with the book, but I'm busy.

    Reviews on the book seem to forget that Elaine is a journalist who writes about people doing this very thing. She may be a one-person millionaire (I don't know), but the book is a distillation of her research with some good quotes and Q&A from people actually doing it.

    For folks who complain that she reads slowly, speed up the playback.

    For a short book on a good topic, if you're pursuing enterprises, why not add this to your toolkit.

    Short & Sweet

    I liked it. The solopreneur can work less and earn more on their own than a company employee. It is counterintuitive, but true. On my own, I earned over 40% more than I did as an employee and worked one-fourth as much. They don't talk about this stuff in business school, but your quality of life tends to improve when you're not giving over half you income to the man upstairs.

    Good info.

    A little boring in my opinion.
    Basically most are examples of what businesses are doing to succeed. If you are pretty knowledgeable on the businesses she talks about then it’s boring.
    Ok for a one time read but not a book I would read again.

    Should have hired a narrator

    The book was fine, but not really worth the money. It’s basically just the author listing successful businesses - nothing new.
    And with 2 hours left I had to quit. Her voice is not made for this and she should have hired someone to narrate it.
    I’m disappointed.
