Browsing through Amazon I spotted that Michael Gerber has a new book out - "The E-Myth Enterprise: How to Turn A Great Idea Into a Thriving Business".
The book was released on June 23 2009 in the US but I didn't see any promotional blurb or any special events for The E-Myth Enterprise.
Publishers Week says Michael Gerber "identifies four essential facets of building a new company—visual, emotional, functional and financial—and the five essential skills: concentration, discrimination, organization, innovation and communication."
That sounds to me like an update of "The Power Point" by Michael Gerber published in 1991 and which has been out of print for years.
Being a big Michael Gerber fan, I of course have a copy of The Power Point.
After the disappointment of Awakening The Entrepreneur Within and importing a copy from the US before the UK launch, I want to see "The E-Myth Enterprise" in a bookshop before I spend my money.
There is only one review on Amazon.com so far - 5 stars - but it mentions the pure business poetry which is Michael Gerber's trademark. That scares me as the ideas are usually powerful but I don't enjoy the writing style.
Not sure why the launch of "The E-Myth Enterprise"has been so quiet because I think a new Michael Gerber book should be an event that is widely promoted in the small business / entrepreneur community.
I very much see Michael Gerber as the person who invented business coaching since before him, the small business community was largely ignored by business consultants because of the cost/benefit problem. Michael Gerber showed how it could be done by teaching the entrepreneur or small business owner to do it themselves but with guidance.
