The E-Myth Manager, by Michael E. Gerber

The E-Myth Manager: Why Most Managers Don’t Work and What to Do About It, by Michael E. Gerber

I thought his first book made some pretty good points, so I thought I’d try this one too. Lightning did not strike twice, though—this is awful. The idea here is basically every man for himself and you should never buy into a higher ideal. With beliefs like this, volunteerism would be dead! There was a fun quote early on, though, that pokes fun at other philosophies: “They learned ... that you could learn the seven essential skills, or the six effective habits, or the trick of becoming a one-minute Manager. They ... were only treating the symptoms, not the causes.” Way to slam your rivals, Michael!

First Sentence:
At the beginning of every organization, of every business, of every invention—of every life—is an idea.
