This is a great book, a book that I long have searched for and wanted for my students. What I particular value in this book is the books discussion of pro and cons, and how it allows the reader to evaluate their options. The book offers a nice and balanced introduction to the variety of ways one could engage in entrepreneurship, both in practice and as a learner. Part I takes a “how to do” approach aiding the reader from an idea search to an emerging new venture. Part II addresses the learners need for guidance. Through the tales of entrepreneurship scholars, cases, elaborations on research questions and methods, the learner are offered a way into exploring essential emerging issues in entrepreneurship research themselves. The format of the book allows me as a teacher in entrepreneurship subjects to assist the learning of my students by inviting them into the entrepreneurial universe by themselves taking part in their own entrepreneurial endeavor through action and reflection.
A detailed and contemporary text offering a coherent outline of key concepts and practices in the field of entrepreneurship. This book explores a diverse range of issues relevant to all studying entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial behaviour; an excellent and comprehensive text. It is to be recommended to all those engaged with teaching, debating and theorising entrepreneurship.
This book provides an insightful grounded perspective on the rapidly evolving subject of entrepreneurship. The combination of the practical and the academic gives it a distinctive position in the marketplace for student texts on the subject
This is a well written and accessible book on entrepreneurship which makes a welcome return in an improved second edition. Blundel, Lockett and Wang with their blend of practical coverage and perspectives on entrepreneurship make the subject come to life. This book will be invaluable to lecturers and students alike.
This is a great book which is easy to read for practitioners and offers a comprehensive insight for academic scholars and entrepreneurs.
This second edition of a valuable core text on entrepreneurship brings a welcome updating and fresh approach to the work. The scope of the book, covering the entrepreneurial process, creativity and innovation, and the business disciplines of marketing, finance, people and technology management and the range of business models and strategies, is comprehensive. The separation between practical and research-based perspectives works effectively.
Each chapter in Part One is conceptually sound, with clear learning outcomes and well-framed questions. They are filled with a range of authentic, relevant and well-researched case studies. The qual...
