We spend countless hours in our cars or walking and we spend much of this time either listening to music or talking to a friend on the phone. Talking while driving is not recommended, and if you’ve caught up with everyone, a better use of your time is to listen to a top audio book in a topic that you’re interested in. If you’re thinking of starting your own business, or you’re interested in doing so, we’ve compiled the best audio books for entrepreneurs based on reviews and critical analysis.
4 Best Audio Books for Entrepreneurs
1. The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses – Eric Ries
The Lean Startup is filled with technical information, but also interesting stories that back up the author’s assertions.
2. The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It – Michael E. Gerber
This is one of the few books you must read if you want to go into business. It’s called The E-Myth because it addresses the entrepreneurial myth. The book starts off by telling you what a business is not. Having done so, the book goes on to tell you what a successful business is all about.
This book is for those of us who have found ourselves lying on the floor, barely able to lift our heads, not sure where to turn, just as James did once (twice, three times?). It’s for those who are stuck. For those who are successful but want to take it to the next level.
4. The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur: The Tell-it-Like-it-is Guide to Cleaning Up in Business, Even if You Are at the End of Your Roll – Mike Michalowicz
This book showed me that regular people with some skill and an idea can launch a successful business — without all the fancy schmancy MBA stuff and spending thousands on consultants and technology.
