Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: Getting Started

Posted on Thursday, Jun 11th 2009

I’d like to share a bit of a terrific and detailed review of Entrepreneur Journeys that Robert Steele, a “Top 50 Reviewer” for Amazon, posted:

“[Entrepreneur Journeys] is a series of vignettes, one-third context, one-third financing, and one-third nuggets, and for the nuggets alone it is assuredly worthy of purchase and reflection.

As a long-time fan of Peter Drucker’s, and especially his focus on work as a calling and capitalism as doing well financially by doing good for the customer, I have an early note, “in the Drucker tradition.”  “That is *very* high praise.”

Of Bootstrapping: Weapon of Mass Reconstruction, Genesis Davies of the At Home Mom Blog says,

“If you are looking for inspiration, the entrepreneurs that Mitra features are fascinating.  They give a little background on themselves, so there is more information than simply the business side of it.  Each interview runs for several pages and covers a LOT of information.  This is quite valuable if you’re interested in how things are run and exactly how, with details, these people got started.  I found it quite informative.”>

The book is also mentioned by Mark Harbeke in an interesting Winning Workplaces post.
