It is an interesting book on enterpreneurship theory. Still, I think that most of the concepts presented are really not new and related to and or borrowed from other disciplines.Researchers and writers in this field seem to collect ideas from elsewhere and what is really lacking is either a new look at old theories cited or fresh new ideas and concepts or if you will, theories. The book is a good effort by the author Shane and an excellent easy reading text indeed. I enjoyed reading the preview.

Scott Shane has tried to provide presentable defination. The aspects that were over looked by Venkataraman (1997) have been highlighted in this book. The introductory pages dipcits about the entrepreneurship as an area that combine that innovative theiory and management links.
