The book is simple, easy to follow and a very interesting read. Teresa breaks difficult concepts into small pieces and then explains these with examples. The book provides a clear road map to starting one's own social venture. I was extremely petrified of the steps and work involved in the entrepreneurship and the black box of innovation This book really helped me understand the idea and meaning of innovation and gave me a great confidence to start my own venture based on the skills gained by this book. The book also pointed me to the right direction as in where to look for more information, what are the questions that I need to ask . This book is a must read for everyone and anyone who is thinking of Social Entrepreneurship.
