Entrepreneur Journeys Book Review: Push Of Encouragement To Set You On The Path To Success

Posted on Tuesday, Sep 7th 2010

Here is Charles Ashbacher’s review of Innovation: Need Of The Hour (Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume 4) on

“It is hard to argue with the basic premise of this collection of interviews, namely that innovation driven by entrepreneurs is the key to solving the biggest problems of today. The near financial collapse of late 2008 destabilized markets all around the world and the current levels of governmental budget deficits in the United States are unsustainable. Add in the devastating potential for climate change and it is easy to descend into a state of despair over the state of the world.

This collection of interviews with people that have started companies with new approaches to problems will give you hope. The interviewees are dynamic, original, intelligent and extremely positive about what they are doing. It is also refreshing to hear from people whose goal is to change the world rather than simply extract cash from it. The interviewees are also refreshingly candid about what they see as the failures of businesses to look beyond three months and their inability to accept short-term reductions in share value in order to reap much greater value in the future. A specific point of emphasis is in how the entrepreneur can fund their idea without having to give up critical control of their company.

In great crises there is always great opportunity and people with courage and a great idea for a new way to do things during a crisis can do things that will help alleviate the problems and make a great deal of money. If you are such a person, the inspirational nature of this book may be the last push of encouragement that will set you on the path to success.”
