A good-quality textbook which encompasses all aspects of establishing and leading a new venture. Noteworthy are the focus on recognizing opportunity for a venture, possible troubles and ways to deal with them. One of the biggest values of the book is a great focus on entrepreneurial finance - from obtaining financing, to managing cash flow, to exiting and harvesting gains. Interesting, diverse and detailed cases in the end of each chapter, which are based on real characters and stories.

J Timmons was a professor who practiced in real business world what he taught at University. Thus the book is excellent tool for starting entrepreneurs, very useful for those whose small companies experience low growth rates and remarkable for theorists who want to write books of interest for practitioners.
I had to read this at university but over the time it has helped me win millions of dollars in business for my employers and helped me organize new ventures effectively and honestly. The information and tools in this book are almost like an MBA in one IMHO.
A definite read for any aspiring entrepreneur. Even though it's a textbook, it's really good and really delves into the process of venture creation. Probably the only textbook I ever enjoyed reading.
This book is good for those who wnt to create a new business ,for entrepreneur who is an opportunity seeker.
This was my favourite MBA text- love the subject matter, though! Well written, good case studies, etc.

I found it super boring. There is more fluff than substance.
