I too read that book HRoth. I dont think it is well written or even contains novel ideas but it makes you look at what you are doing and re-evaluate what you are putting your effort into.
It is a simple message about transitioning to having employees and managing them and the business appropriately at different stages of growth. Like you i dont see the franchise message in the book as a blanket solution.
