Michael E. Gerber is the highest selling small business author of all time — he’s sold over 8,000,000 copies of the E-Myth and the E-Myth Revisited. Considering 5,000 copies makes a book a bestseller, this is impressive.The story of how he came to write The E-Myth Bookkeeper with Peter and Debbie is incredible. When Debbie first realized she needed help to grow her bookkeeping business, she engaged Pete as her business coach after they met at a networking group. The first thing Pete did was give her a copy of The E-Myth. He knew to realize her vision of a thriving bookkeeping business, Debbie needed to create a set of systems which would allow other bookkeepers to replicate her standard of work, so she no longer had to be the “technician” in the business. It’s a story like many others in the small business world and the E-Myth was written to help people in exactly Debbie’s situation. Fast forward 12 years and Pete hears his friend, Michael Palmer, who now runs Pure Bookkeeping Canada, is organizing a conference in Canada where Gerber is the headline speaker. Pete asks Michael if he can get Gerber to sign a copy of the E-Myth for Debbie since she enjoyed the book. So Michael says to Gerbe, “you have a huge fan in Australia” then showed him an extract of the Pure Bookkeeping System. Gerber’s response blew Peter and Debbie away. Not only did he sign the book for Debbie, he then asked Pete and Deb if they would co-author The E-Myth Bookkeeper with him! Deb was literally speechless when she heard.

What others have said about E-Myth Bookkeeper:The biggest thing that jumped out at me was how much the authors knew about me and my business. Page after page was full of solutions that fit my business perfectly because it’s written for bookkeepers. The end result? Now I have a more specific destination (where I want to take my business) and now I’m in the middle of mapping out how to get there. Thanks to Debbie for not quitting even though I know that she felt like doing just that many times.
-Aaron Zinger, On The Money Bookkeeping Services Ltd.Wow, I sure wish I had read the E-Myth bookkeeper when I started out my business. I feel like I was reading part of my own story, but now I have some ammunition to make the changes I need to make in my business, Thank you Debbie and Peter for sharing your story and developing Pure Bookkeeping!
-Joyel Hidber, Vision Accounting & Business Services LtdIt was an eye-opening experience while reading through the book. It relays many facts bookkeepers are facing. It also provides solutions and ideas on how to deal with the up and downs in the bookkeeping field. I have to admit, I didn’t really think of the idea of selling the business, so I could make money out of it. I also love the idea Debbie can now free her own time and have the right people working for her. This is a new era of the bookkeeping industry.
-Jane Wong, JaneFunda BookkeepingI really enjoyed the book and every chapter gave new insight and excitement for the future. I read the book about a month ago and what I remember the most and has made me ACT on my bookkeeping business future is something Debbie said. She said something along the lines of…… don’t wait for something to be perfect to start doing it! For example I was working on my engagement letter and felt that I was still missing details and was not going to type it up for use until I felt I had everything I wanted in there….. so months went by without typing anything!! Until I read the book and said to myself….Certainly I can change and refine anything I want to when I know how to do it better! So know I am feeling more able to run with my ideas without the stress of having it to be 100% right on the first try. This has really gotten things rolling for me!!
