Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: Find The Value That’s Missing

Posted on Friday, Jul 24th 2009

Here is part of Jim Stroup’s insightful review, published on Managing Leadership, of Sramana’s latest volume of “Entrepreneur Journeys”.

“As you read this book — and you should, even if you never intend to become such an entrepreneur as it describes — you will be able to see the power, forcefully described in numerous and diverse examples, of key management practices applied to the discovery and exploitation of market opportunities. You will observe how basic managerial insight and discipline were deployed to make these businesses, and these business people, successful.

This marvelous book spends little time inflating the character and unique attributes of its subjects. What it does is far more useful both to new entrepreneurs just hanging out a shingle and to senior managers struggling to remember what, exactly, it is that they do for a living: find the value that’s missing, understand it from the customer’s perspective, and use all of your focus and determination to build your business activities around providing it.

“Bootstrapping” by Sramana Mitra is a thoroughly enjoyable, insightful, and highly recommended read. Get your copy now!”
