Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jack has created a pot pourri of business ideas and experience. It is an ideal starter for the budding entrepreneur. The exercises at the end of each chapter are especially useful to aid thinking and reach conclusions." Robin Saxby, Chairman, ARM Holdings plc "Jack's book is a distillation of knowledge about starting and growing companies. The UK and Cambridge have seen a dramatic growth in entrepreneurial companies and culture, but there is still a way to go. We still lag well behind other places, like Silicon Valley, although Cambridge now has its first few home-grown billion-pound companies Reading this book will help you to build strong enterprises, whether you are just starting out or are already some way down the track, or even just taking on new challenges within an organisation in these difficult times. I wish that this had been available when I was starting out. Strongly recommended." Hermann Hauser, Cambridge University

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Colin Ong TS on May 10, 2003
In this book, Jack has set out very relevant guide posts for people who are involved in start-ups. His writing is absolutely "no-nonsense" and this book can be used as a recommended text in any business course.
My favourite bits:
I feel that Chapter 10 (Managing Projects) was very well-presented and clear. Another must-read is Chapter 13 (Reading the Market) where Jack actually brings in Economics concepts - this is a refreshing change and reinforces in relevance of Economics as an analytical tool.
Jack also includes updated links of relevant sites to research.
I believe that different portions of the book will benefit people at different stages of business development. This book is a must-buy purely because it does not romanticise entrepreneurship but genuinely wants the reader to succeed...

This is a fantastic book. Each chapter contains significantly more facts, concepts and hard learnt advice than any other business book I read. For example in one short chapter he teaches you the basics of double-entry bookeeping so you can actually understand what your accountant is doing.
