Older edition, I read for the fun of it September 7, 2010
by
This book is an excellent introduction to the subject of entrepreneurship. It is a well-researched overview. It debunks a lot of misconceptions that get a lot of media attention (such as the inflated numbers surrounding how many startups fail - don't believe the exaggerated 'death toll' of startups in the news; most don't "fail" - they are sold or closed because the entrepreneur is moving on to other projects). Enjoyable read, even if it is a textbook.
