After teaching a course in entrepreneurship several times to college seniors and MBA students, at two different universities, using several different textbooks, I detected a need for a new kind of text. This book represents my attempt to address that need by integrating lessons learned in these teaching experiences with those learned in a 20-year entrepreneurial career.About the Author:
