meh? dated info, without the "prophetic" charm of older business books. still a decent read if it's all you've got, but there are better uses of your time than to read this book.

Non sono un manager, non mi intendo affatto di economia, eppure ho creduto opportuno inserire qui su GR, questo numero di una importante ed affermata rivista economica che porta il nome di una prestigiosa università. La ragione è dovuta al fatto che sono un dinosauro, figlio di un tipografo post-gutenberghiano del secolo e del millennio scorsi, non mi stancherò mai di scriverlo per affermare l'evoluzione della specie.

Mi piace occuparmi dei nuovi media e della editoria in genere e delle sue tras

This is book a collection of articles (total of 8). Needless to say, HBR articles are of good quality and this one is not an exception. While a couple of articles are not very useful or up to the mark, the rest make it up. A good read for entrepreneurs and the like!

Interesting for a young entrepreneur or someone who is really starting out. It's likely not relevant for a more seasoned entrepreneur or senior executive.

The Harvard Business Review on Entrepreneurship is the type of book that one can easily read during a two-hour flight. It contains eight articles, all authored by seasoned business professionals. If you are even remotely interested in starting your own business then you will surely appreciate this collection of wisdom. I have been referring to this book for several years and regard it as one of the more important reference works for my consultancy.

Excellent book with extremely pertinent cases. However, somewhat outdated as it does not reflect the changes in entrepreneurship, VC, and the tech industry after the dot com boom, bust, and recent recession. If you are in the industry, it will spur some considerable discussion and debate. If you're not, I do not recommend this book for a beginner as you'll receive an outdated view of the start up world and its requirements.

Reading this book gave me my first twang of remorse that I didn't get into Harvard. It was phenomenal. Must read for anyone interested in starting a company.
