Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best business book for small business owners A business coach suggested this book 15 years ago to me and it is simply THE BEST business book for small service businesses I have read. I have been in business 13 years now and still look at chapters and always check updates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Contemplating starting your own business? Read this book first! The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber is a great book for those who have toyed around with the idea of starting a business with no real business background or experience. Gerber explains why many small businesses fail early from the get-go, and he outlines what is needed for a business to succeed. I really liked this book; it's an easy and interesting read, and includes real case studies of some of the most successful businesses in the world. Let me clarify; this book is not a step-by-step guide on how to create and run a business, but this book will help you figure out whether you should be starting a business to begin with by enumerating the right and wrong reasons for anyone to be starting a company. The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber is definitely recommended for anyone who is contemplating entrepreneurship, especially for individuals with no business background. -- Review by anonymouslytested.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I not read it any earlier? If you own a small business, you probably have heard about this book at some point and people have recommended you read it. Well, I finally did it after 18 months of hard work on my business and it's as if it was written just for me. A must read for a small business owner, even if things are going well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Entrepreneur Needs It! The book does get a bit wordy after a while, but it really is like an entrepreneur's Bible. It will help you understand yourself and therefore, how to run your business. If you're losing money, direction or motivation, this book will help get you back on track. It is a must read for all business people - from aspiring entrepreneurs to experienced ones. I've bought 4 copies - one for me and three others for my friends in business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short, concise and to the point A must-read for any small business person or would-be entrepeneur. As a co-owner of a small property management office, I would have thought Michael Gerber had been sitting and watching over my left shoulder as our business developed. He clearly identifies why many small businesses don’t work, and provides a step-by-step plan for fixing the inevitable problems that the person growing a successful business will encounter. Now, as a business consultant, I am seeing the inside workings of numerous small businesses, many of whom suffer from the same problems Michael Gerber identifies. A short read. Concise and to the point. This book will change the way you think about your business. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from How to Stop "Doing, Doing, Doing!" As a business coach, I see a lot of entrepreneurs going crazy with long hours and big frustration. This book takes you one step back and has you analyze your business all over again. His stories help you see the point and how to apply his model. But save yourself the grief of reading the letter to Sara at the end. Phew!
