More About the Author

I was a music and retail entrepreneur in high school, adding a consulting business in college and graduate school, and came from family businesses (discount stores, auto parts distributing, tire sales and even a pharmacy), but for the past 30+ years I've been teaching and writing about entrepreneurship - first at Wharton and for more than two decades at Saint Louis University.

From that experience I co-authored Entrepreneurial Small Business (published by McGraw-Hill) a textbook based on how we teach at SLU. It is unusual in that we focus on the kinds of businesses most undergrads and lifelong learners really start - so almost nothing on venture capital, but a whole chapter on part-time self-employment, a chapter on managing cash, and a financing chapter that covers not only debt and equity but gifts. Like I said, very realistic for most of us. Following the model in our program, the text also has more than 30 skill modules, giving readers the how-to for the key skills that underpin successful entrepreneurial ventures - everything from how to ask for help to how to find out what to pay a potential employee.

I have also edited and co-edited two book series - Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth an annual research volume (published by Emerald) and the Entrepreneurship and Management of Growing Enterprises series of text supplements from Sage, which includes titles like Field Casework (Lisa Gundry and Aaron Buchko) which is one of the few books out there for students working on consulting projects in the field, and Investigating Entrepreneurial Opportunities: A Practical Guide for Due Diligence (Richard P. Green and James J. Carroll) which makes clear how to vet a prospective business purchase.

Thanks for your interest. Happy reading!

This is a great book for entrepreneurship.

Note: This book is nearly identical to the latest edition. The only difference is picture on the front, fonts used, page numbers, and some of the problems at the end of the chapters were simply rearranged (compared it with a classmate's). DO NOT fall for the whole "you need the latest edition" requirement. It is downright crooked for a publishing company to change such minor things, call it a newer edition, and up the price to hundreds of dollars. It's also heartless for a professor in a college of business to force his students to pay hundreds of dollars for something so similar to a book that only costs $40 or $50. Buy the next latest edition of any book you purchase and save a ton of money!

I highly recommend "Entrepreneurial Small Business" by Jerome Katz and Richard Green. This is a great book for anyone taking a business or entrepreneurship course, or anyone interested in starting their own business. It is a shortcut to the best information on business available - all compiled into one hardback manual. It covers from start to finish the "how-to" steps to coming up with the most feasible business concepts, how to get funding, how to develop and market the business, and the legal and accounting practices that every business should follow to stay in compliance and out of trouble. It covers it all. Don't try to learn it the hard way through trial and failure with your new business - get this book, read it, and save it as a resource as your business grows. (I also highly recommend to professors looking for a comprehensive textbook for your business courses.)

I really thought this book sucked. It highlighted terms like "the golden rule" and "twitter." Way too much fluff in this book, could've cut down on a lot of the BS, and the book would easily be a quarter of the size and still produce the same information.

The book I needed for my class. There are books out there that you do not have the option of renting. This is a great option and good price for a text book. If you like the material and want the book then buy it. If you just need it for a class then rent it. Amazon and Kindle are very easy to deal with and use, especially compared to other lagging options out there. I would give it five stars if it were cheaper.

This book is exactly what was required for my MGMT 350 course at SIUC. It has also helped me in other classes.
