Critical Acclaim for Book

My book release date is coming up quickly. Please note that is currently taking pre-orders. In April, simultaneously, the book will be released in hardback, paperback, and e-book versions–all at different price points.

The critical acclaim that my book is receiving with its initial reviews is humbling, to say the least. To read some of the comments from my heroes in the field of Entrepreneurship is something I am so honored by.

You can view their comments via the publisher’s website (Edward Elgar Publishing), but for the east of reading, I have posted comments here:

Critical Acclaim:

‘This book provides a wealth of in-class exercises to engage students in all aspects of the entrepreneurial process. I found great comfort in using a resource that has such a broad repertoire of activities that can challenge students to master new ways of entrepreneurial thinking and acting. If you need an exercise on a particular topic in entrepreneurship, you will find it in this book. This is a wonderful resource to involve students in entrepreneurial experiences where they can learn by doing and reflecting.’
– William B. Gartner, Babson College, US

‘Learning entrepreneurship requires doing entrepreneurship and the exercises in this book highlight doing as the pedagogy for learning. This book is my new “go-to” book for new exercises. Thank you for this contribution to entrepreneurship education.’

‘This thoughtful and practical book is a must-read for educators who foster entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity in the engaged classroom workshop. As a field, we are so very lucky to have all of [Jim’s / Hart’s] insights in one place, and shared in such a way that makes them so easy to understand and apply. As a teacher, I am grateful to have found my new go-to resource.’

‘Hart’s book is an important resource with the potential to make a significant impact in how entrepreneurship educators teach. To be a successful entrepreneur requires creativity and a bias to action. This book has promotes both in a positive and constructive manner.’
– Bill Aulet, Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, MIT Sloan School of Management and author, Disciplined Entrepreneurship and Disciplined Entrepreneurship Workbook

‘Jim Hart is a USASBE award-winning professor of entrepreneurship and an innovative educator. He has an extraordinary gift of identifying critical elements of the entrepreneurial process and creating exercises and demonstrations for communicating it to others. For educators, this book has a wealth of tried and tested exercises for creating breakthrough understanding for students. Some of these exercises will also provide valuable insights for practicing entrepreneurs. For the entrepreneurially inclined this is a must-read.’
– Jerry White, Southern Methodist University, US

“The impact of entrepreneurship education is maximized when multi-disciplinary approaches are used, and yet most professors are trained deeply in one area. Hart’s book offers a dynamic and robust series of tools for educators to create their own hyper-involved classroom regardless of their discipline to prepare students to impact the real world. I highly recommend this book“

— Julienne Shields, Director, Millikin University’s Center for Entrepreneurship, Tabor School of Business; co-author/editor of Arts and Entrepreneurship
