More About the Author

Arthur C. Brooks is the president of the American Enterprise Institute. Until January 1, 2009, he was the Louis A. Bantle Professor of Business and Government Policy at Syracuse University. Throughout his career, Arthur has conducted research on the connections between culture, politics and economic life, and has published hundreds of articles and 10 books on subjects ranging from the economics of the arts to military operations research.

Born in 1964, Arthur grew up in Seattle in a family less interested in free enterprise than in the arts. At age 19, he dropped out of college to pursue a career as a professional French hornist. Arthur performed with the Annapolis Brass Quintet, toured with famed jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd, and spent several years with the City Orchestra of Barcelona. In Barcelona in 1991, he married Ester Munt-Brooks.

In 1992, Arthur and Ester moved to the U.S., where Ester taught languages and Arthur returned to college at night while teaching music during the day. He studied economics, math and languages, eventually earning bachelor's and master's degrees in economics and a Ph.D. in public policy. After finishing his doctorate, Arthur spent 10 years as a university professor, teaching economics, nonprofit management, and social entrepreneurship.

At the end of 2008, he left academia to join AEI as the institution's eleventh president. He speaks widely on behalf of AEI and the free enterprise movement all around the United States and world, and continues to write books and articles.

Arthur and Ester currently reside in Bethesda, Maryland, with their three children Joaquin, Carlos, and Marina.

This book provides a good overview of both the entrepreneurial process and discussion about "social entrepreneurship." Perhaps one of the most distinguishing architectural features of this text is that each chapter is essentially constructed like a miniature literature review with citations to not only popular trade publications and newspaper articles but also academic journals that examine the nonprofit sector. This makes it valuable especially to readers who may want to become conversant in a topic but who also may appreciate help identifying relevant academic journals and more esoteric publications. Overall, the book is thorough and concise, and a while it lacks "worksheets" and practitioner tools included in many other social entrepreneurship textbooks, I have found it a very helpful text for my own education and that of my students.

The information in the book was fine for the class. However, it had what looked like coffee stains, a torn and bent cover. I was not happy with the shape the book was in. I will try not to order from here again. Although, the book did come in a timely fashion before the due date actually.

Not much to say. Course called for this book and it arrived quickly and less expensive than other places I checked.
