In so doing, we have presented the accounts of distinguished explorers in their own words.

✏Entrepreneurship Book Summary : Entrepreneurship is the capability to be an entrepreneur. Beyond that idea is an ideology that a person's business actions result in industrial growth or technical advances, making that person a leader in the economic world. The contributors to this latest volume in the Praxiology Series, now available in paperback, are united in claiming that resourcefulness is a characteristic of people who take effective action, and that effectiveness is dependent on good, ethical purposes. The wide-angle definition of entrepreneurship presented in this volume demands that people and organizations engage in more than simple self-interest, but also display awareness of the prospects for wider growth and advances resulting from their decisions. In a period of financial crisis caused by irresponsible behavior by eminent would-be "entrepreneurs" the significance of this perspective should be evident. The editors claim that growth, not stagnation, advantage, not decline, are irreversible traits of business activity. This is why the very concept of entrepreneurship calls for values and responsibility-even more than in the past. The contributors develop the idea of entrepreneurship from both theoretical approaches religious and practical, or applied perspectives. This inter- and multidisciplinary approach offers readers a chance to rebuild trust in entrepreneurship.

✏The Illusions of Entrepreneurship Book Summary : There are far more entrepreneurs than most people realize. But the failure rate of new businesses is disappointingly high, and the economic impact of most of them disappointingly low, suggesting that enthusiastic would-be entrepreneurs and their investors all too often operate under a false set of assumptions. This book shows that the reality of entrepreneurship is decidedly different from the myths that have come to surround it. Scott Shane, a leading expert in entrepreneurial activity in the United States and other countries, draws on the data from extensive research to provide accurate, useful information about who becomes an entrepreneur and why, how businesses are started, which factors lead to success, and which predict a likely failure. The Illusions of Entrepreneurship is an essential resource for everyone who has dreamed of starting a new business, for investors in start-ups, for policy makers attempting to facilitate the formation and survival of new businesses, and for researchers interested in the economic impact of entrepreneurial activity. Scott Shane offers research-based answers to these questions and many others: · Why do people start businesses? · What industries are popular for start-ups? · How many jobs do new businesses create? · How do entrepreneurs finance their start-ups? · What makes some locations and some countries more entrepreneurial than others? · What are the characteristics of the typical entrepreneur? · How well does the typical start-up perform? · What strategies contribute to the survival and profitability of new businesses over time?

✏The Entrepreneur in Focus Book Summary : This innovative book is about identifying and releasing entrepreneurial potential. Using the idea of character themes, it defines the entrepreneur in terms of six key themes, and provides readers with the opportunity to assess themselves in these areas. This book also discusses how entrepreneurs develop, or are stifled, in society at large and within large organizations - the topic of intrapreneurship - and considers how successful entrepreneurs measure up against the six character themes identified. The authors enable readers to identify their talents so that they can be more creative, innovative and enterprising. Having read this book, readers will have a better understanding of their entrepreneurial potential. This book will be essential reading for the general professional business market, and for students of entrepreneurship and enterprise development at undergraduate, MBA and MSc levels."FACETS (Focus, Advantage, Creativity, Ego, Team and Social) succinctly summarizes the themes of entrepreneurs that we at Gallup have been studying and discovering during this last twenty years. I believe the book will be an excellent tool for any person practicing entrepreneurship and should be a required reading for entrepreneurship study in colleges and universities." Don Clifton, Chairman of Gallup International Research Centre, retired Chairman of Gallup IncThe range of examples used really aim the text at anyone interested in finding out about what is meant by those words - 'entrepreneurship' and 'being entrepreneurial' and 'being enterprising'. It could therefore be read by anyone thinking about going into business on their own or just trying to understand how they could be more enterprising."

✏Entrepreneurship Book Summary : Entrepreneurs exist in every country but the nature and level of entrepreneurial activity differs remarkably. Why is this? What shapes the level of entrepreneurial activity in each country? What defines entrepreneurial activity? As more and more teaching and research into entrepreneurship reflects its often international nature, the need for literature reflecting this grows. This concise new textbook provides an introduction to topics in entrepreneurship in a global context; focusing on how enterprise works across the world. Important topics such as financing, innovation and (anti) social enterprise are discussed in detail throughout the text and examples and case studies are used to illustrate the application of different theoretical and conceptual approaches to entrepreneurship and the role it plays in developed, emerging and transitional economies. Entrepreneurship: A Global Perspective is suitable for both final year undergraduate and postgraduate courses in enterprise and is likely to appeal particularly to student groups with a strong international element.
