I read The E-Myth Revisted a couple of years ago. Unfortunately, I wasn’t writing reviews at the time, so I don’t have a review for the book to share with you. However, I do remember that the message was great and the book was pretty boring.
Because The E-Myth Accountant was specific to an industry, I felt that it was less boring and very applicable to the reader. The primary message in The E-Myth Revisited is that business owners need to work on the business rather than in the business if they want to grow. In The E-Myth Accountant, Michael Gerber and M. Darren Root, his subject matter expert for this book, walk accounting firm owners through the process of making this a reality for their firm.
The problem with most accounting practices is that the systems thinker—the entrepreneur—is completely absent. And so is the vision.
This book is a must-read for any accounting firm owner who wants to get out of the daily grind of compliance-based work, increase the value of their services, and grow their firm.
