‘Resilience – whether relating to individuals, businesses, sectors or places – is an important concept in an increasingly volatile world. Williams and Vorley have performed a valuable service in bringing together these high quality essays. I am confident that the volume will stimulate further work on this topic.’

‘As someone who researches resilience and sustainability in entrepreneurs, I appreciated the book's message and details. As someone who endeavors to live resiliently and sustainably (and entrepreneurially). I really appreciate this. Five years ago people would stare blankly at phrases such as "circular economy". Today, they get it. With books like this, in five years, we'll be living it. The educator, scholar and entrepreneur in me all applaud this bold effort. Well done, gents!’

‘Without a doubt, Creating Resilient Economies: Entrepreneurship, Growth and Development in Uncertain Times makes a signiﬁcant contribution to the literature. The book’s key contribution is in the individual authors’ well-thought-out interpretations on what resilience is and can be, where it comes from, and what its consequences are. Even though there is an increasing interest in resilience among economic geographers, urban planners, and management scholars alike, few publications on the topic cover as much terrain as this book does. The book oﬀers a very timely illustration of a construct that has increasing importance in today’s society, where the pace of technological change and increasing economic inequality mean that some individuals, companies, neighborhoods, cities, and regions are facing an almost constant crisis on multiple fronts. To break this cycle, and to move on, requires resilience. This book oﬀers interesting and important ideas on how to build such resilience.'
