This author puts down the constant siege of management trends built on buzzwords and oversimplified concepts. Then he proceeds to put forth his own version of the same. However, he does rely more on principle and makes some interesting points on the way. Foremost among them is that a good manager starts with asking the question "What do I want?" The wisdom behind this is derived from his original "e-myth" that successful companies are not based on an entrepeneurial culture but instead on one per ...more

Not sure about this one. Didn't really enjoy the tone. Felt there was a lot of padding, but the key ideas wouldn't fill up a book and thus make sales...

7 steps in becoming an Emyth manager: primary aim, strategic objective, then the stategies: financial, organizational, management, people and marketing.

THIS IS A BOOK FOR:
1. ANYONE WHO WANT GO SOMEWHERE IN BUSINESS LIFE
2. SOMEONE WHO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT HE'S SEEING
3. SOMEONE WHO WANT TO CHANGE HIS RESULT AND IS READY TO HEAR THE TRUTH
4. SOMEONE WITH A LARGE HEART FOR GROWTH.

YOU CAN BE THE EMPEROR OF YOUR LIFE.

The E-Myth Manager... a clear roadmap on how to transform your management team into an inspired, motivated and empowered group of intra-preneurs.

Indeed, if you want your organization to leap-frog towards demonstrable, measurable results, profits and joy - train and coach them through these watershed concepts and principles!

I've facilitated this course with one of my client's executive management teams, and the results have been extraordinary within a very short time!

So I read this after I read E-myth revisited. I think this was also an excellent book. It's about becoming a motivated manager and helping other become motivated. Again, I think he is spot on.
MsSmartiePants ...like the candy...
Please see the review for The E-Myth. Again, you would do well to consider the concepts in the books by this author. These are simple to understand, but can be very difficult to implement!

I find the concept of the emperor, the manager and the technician handy... That at any time your focus is either on The Enterprise (Vision) The Business (Processes) or The Practice (Execution).

How to keep the managers and owners of a company always working together and building the best company together. One of the best books I read and I think every manager should read it.

This book has a few good points, but I did not like the condescending attitude.

I loved the E-Myth Revisited. It changed my life.
This book was gobbledygook.
