5.0 out of 5 stars This book is awesome
By Will on March 4, 2022
This textbook is probably the only book you'll ever need on entrepreneurship. It covers everything under the sun on entrepreneurship. I bought the paperback version and really liked it because it is colored inside, not black and white as the "look inside" feature shows.
