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.

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.
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.
