The E-Myth Revisited

Michael E. Gerber

Overview

Originally published as The E-Myth in 1986, Michael Gerber revised and updated the book in 1995. The E-Myth Revisited has long sold over a million copies.

You might know the common statistic that 80% of new businesses/startups fail. That's the phenomenon that Gerber digs into in this book. Running a business is very different from understanding technical work. However, we can set up a company that depends much more on systems than it does on people, and be handed over to anyone with the right instructions.

"If your business depends on you, you don't own a business - you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world, because you're working for a lunatic!"
