The Book | Pure Bookkeeping Canada

Michael 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 best seller, this is pretty 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.
