Book Reviews: Sitting With The Masters

Posted on Wednesday, Jan 21st 2009

I had asked for referrals to professors of entrepreneurship a few months back here and on LinkedIn.

Well, we have been in touch with many of them on your lists.

Here is a review of EJ1 from Prof. Barrett Hazeltine at Brown University:

“Enjoyed the book and found it worthwhile. The stories are inspiring and could have a significant influence on a student of entrepreneurship or an aspiring entrepreneur. To paraphrase a trite phrase; “Yes, you can!” The stories are more than inspiration, though. The insightful questions and the thoughtful answers give much guidance, and general wisdom. The book occupies a nearly empty niche between lightweight collections of anecdotes and ponderous but often irrelevant academic research. A great opportunity to come close to sitting with masters and learning directly.”

I am honored to have Prof. Hazeltine’s endorsement, and happy to see that he saw the book exactly as I intended: occupies a nearly empty niche between lightweight collections of anecdotes and ponderous but often irrelevant academic research.

If you haven’t already, you can get the book on Amazon. There are 30 other reviews which you may also find helpful.
