1.0 out of 5 stars Did not receive it
Until today, I have not received the product. I regret the fact that this is taking so long. I hope that it will arrive eventually although I do not believe it at this moment in time. I am not going to pay for an item that they are not sending. If I receive it next week, I will draw back these words....

This review is from: Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Successes (Hardcover)
An excellent account on emerging Africa's business environment. The author has objectively revealed to us the other sweet side of the story from Africa.
"Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Success" has opened an entirely new way of thinking about Africa's business culture and the continent's potential as a whole.
My admirations of the book are based on the facts that, the author, not only vindicates the opportunities based on geopolitical, social or economic findings, but also and more so, the cultural creativity and emotional intelligences among individuals in the business/entrepreneurship circles.
"Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Success" is a manual to whoever is considering business ventures in Africa. It provides the wide range of issues, politics, history and culture in a prolific manner to enable investors wether already operating in Africa or planning to explore market to make an updated informed decision.
The holistic approach deployed by the author was particularly an added beam of bright rays in the picture of the continent. I found this even more important: The author reveals the successes behind these entrepreneurs are fundamentally founded on authetic and ethical principles of business strategy. As I read, I found such discipline charged their consistent, vision and focus.
As a young entrepreneur and a student of emerging global market, I have found "Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Success" an essential reference right next my desk.

This review is from: Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Successes (Hardcover)
".. A study of Successes" grand sweep of the African entrepreneurial scene provides insight to an aspect of the continent that is more or less absent from popular commentary. Dave Fick's study, cataloging entrepreneurs and their enterprises is important for a number of reasons; these include its focus on the atypical African businessperson that lends their success to virtues of resourcefulness, imagination, ingenuity, tenacity and creativity. The latent inherent mercantilism and entrepreneurship that is just beginning to re-flower has lain dormant for reasons that have been tediously discussed, the continents New African's are just starting from were their pre-colonial forbearers left off.
