Jay Abraham on Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got

Though Jay Abraham has a legacy of thousands of pages of training material and probably a thousand hours of audio, to my knowledge his only printed book is Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got.

This book is deceptively simple, but full of stuff that all business people know they should do, but don’t. Jay puts things in terms that are easy to understand.

He is all about optimization…getting more out your current assets, getting more leverage from the time and money that you invest in any activity.

Each of the twenty-one chapters is easily worth the cost of the book. Check out Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got and apply one-tenth of what you learn, and you will have a much more abundant and fulfilling life and career.

  1. This is one of my two must read books for small business owners together with Michael Gerber’s “E Myth Revisited”.

    Both are reviewed on my blog http://businesscoaching.typepad.com but if you take a look, you will see that I didn’t like either of them when I first bought them.

    On this book Jay gives an outline of his marketing approach but it is not detailed. If you want detail you have to search for the legendary Jay Abraham Strategic Marketing Encyclopedia which is close to 6,000 pages long.

  2. Paul, I didn’t “get” Gerber either at first. I’ll have to go and reread the book.

    I just had the opportunity to hear Jay live last Saturday at the Big Seminar in Atlanta. I have listened to hundreds of hours of audios and read thousands of pages of the various material he has produced.

    Saturday was the first time I heard him in person. He spoke for ninety minutes and I was writing 98% of the entire time. I received a ton of useful content.

    That dude just thinks on a higher level than most of us.

  3. Darrel, like you I have a stack of Jay Abraham material but I’ve not yet had the experience of hearing/seeing him speak live.

    I have seen Michael Gerber because I attended his Dreaming Room in London in October 2007. That was a great experience as there were only about 30 to 40 of us with Michael for two whole days.

    I hope that you do get more out of the E Myth book on your second read.

    I believe that Jay Abraham has the finest profitable opportunity seeking mind I’ve ever encountered but he has admitted that he is weak on systematisation.

    What I get from Michael Gerber is the emphasis on the business owner wrestling back control of his life from the business. A simple concept but the business should support the life the entrepreneur wants to lead rather than become an all-consuming monster. You get control back through systematising the business.
