EXPLORING ENTREPRENEURSHIP, a student text with data CD, provides a pleasing visual presentation and uses relevant examples to make the material engaging for students. Designed for middle/junior high school, students learn concepts and processes associated with successful entrepreneurial performance, which gives them a realistic view of entrepreneurship. A consistent use of easy-to-find features in each chapter will help students relate to prior knowledge, their experiences, and other core subjects. Based on real-life experiences of teenage entrepreneurs, the text teaches critical thinking skills by using relevant activities. Students who use EXPLORING ENTREPRENEURSHIP develop career decision-making skills that they can use for a lifetime, practice problem solving, integrate the study of personal finance topics as appropriate, and become more aware of the role of entrepreneurs and free enterprise in the workplace of the 21st century. As a culminating activity, students work in teams to develop a proposal to start a new business, a self-analysis (including the willingness to take risks), an analysis of the business situation, and a description of the way the business will operate. A general explanation of the financing of the business throughout the first three years of operation is also taught. Students are encouraged to apply entrepreneurial skills to a single sales/service activity to be run as a real business venture. The sales/service activity may focus on any subject of interest to the team and should involve all the members of the team.

This book is a banquet for readers who are open to a broader menu of ideas and insights into the nature of entrepreneurship, how it occurs, and the circumstances by which it manifests itself. By seeing the phenomenon of entrepreneurship in new and intriguing ways, the authors in this book helped me re-imagine the many different kinds of entrepreneurships that exist. I m very impressed with the creativity and scope of this book, and the cleverness of these scholars to bring so many delicious perspectives to the table. A book that is challenging and enjoyable to read. William B. Gartner, Clemson University, US This unique and fascinating book takes a critical look at aspects of the prevalent entrepreneurship discourse and presents several substantive new theories, prescribing what should be abandoned (demobilization) and what should be adopted or given a more central position (mobilization). The contributors contend that entrepreneurship is not only an economic matter; that it is not a predominantly male-gender issue; and that it is not only done by heroes or extraordinary efforts but rather that it is as much a matter of ordinary, routine activities. They conclude that the entrepreneurship literature could greatly benefit from including the concepts of space and place, that resistance to it is an important aspect of its success, and that it is just as much about imitation as about creativity. Finally, they address the issue that what should be demobilized or mobilized in the entrepreneurship discourse might actually be the wrong question, since entrepreneurship is arguably a way of life. At the cutting edge of entrepreneurship research, this thought-provoking book will prove a stimulating read for entrepreneurship academics, students and researchers in the fields of entrepreneurship and business and management.
