‘. . . the book is very useful because it compiles a wide​ ​variety of topics and gives concise overview of the state of​ ​the latest research on these subjects. It is written in a clear​ ​and accessible style. Hence, it is suitable for—and will​ ​undoubtedly be of great value to—undergraduate and​ ​graduate students as well as other researchers interested in​ ​entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation.’
– Imogen Wade, Science & Public Policy

‘Entrepreneurship these days is evident, even showcased, in so many places that it is harder for anyone interested in the field to really know about all of its many facets. That diversity is what makes the Concise Guide so essential. The Guide’s ability to provide an expert's take in just a couple of pages on key topics in entrepreneurship is a boon to anyone interested in entrepreneurship. This is not a volume for your bookcase. You will want it at-hand as your explore the world of entrepreneurship.’
– Jerome Katz, Saint Louis University, US

‘This is a volume that every serious scholar must keep handy, on the desk or in the bag.’
– Journal of Entrepreneurship

‘Entrepreneurship is very much a career choice for increasing number of people, and to find information, not just on entrepreneurship but also on technology and innovation, in an easy-to-read concise book written by numerous experts in the field is invaluable in giving readers a good introduction to the subject.’
