Read, and then re-read.
You might really like this book the first time you read it. I bet you get more out of it, on the second read.

This book is great at explaining why a lot of small businesses never make the jump from small, self-employed operations to big corporations. Learning lots from it so far, and finding out what my own dominant persona is between "The Technician, The Entrepreneur and The Manager".
While the central tenet of the book leans heavily on "creating a system for your business to be awesome", and while I agree that a system indeed has to be created, I found myself cringing quite a few times every time the "image" of a system comes into my mind. That's because our encounter with this business systems -- complete with the "scripted spiels" advice that is repeated several times in the book -- has largely been negative.
Far too many times I've heard of a script being applied to me that makes totally no sense in the context of the problem I'm trying to solve, whether it's a support call for my bank, credit card, web host, or other products. These companies have "the system" that Michael Gerber seems to worship so much -- but they simply turn me off in knowing that a robotic scripted spiel is being applied to me.

This book, which I purchased on CD, made me think entirely differently about the formation and running of a business. Yes, it was easy to see what Michael was saying, once he had said it, but to truly extract the value of an idea and leverage of it requires more than just hard work and determination. It requires, as I am finding out, systemisation.A fantastic read and well worth the money.

Totally changed how I approach my role in a team.
Also made me think about how many different types of businesses I might actually enjoy being a part of.
Highly recommend it!
