Illusions of Entrepreneurship

illusions of entrepreneurship
Scott Shane from Case Western Reserve University just published– The Illusions of Entrepreneurship: “The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By.”

He contacted me recently regarding a quiz on entrepreneurship associated with his book. Startup Addict Musings is the 3rd startup blog to take the quize following Guy Kawasaki and Jeremy Hanks both scoring 40% and 45% respectively.

I wish I could say I did better then my colleagues, but my 40% score is right inline. If you think you can do better feel free to give the entrepreneurial quiz a whirl.

I did find the quiz to reference some seemly impossible historical facts (for a pop quiz) about entrepreneurship in this country, but I’m sure it’s one of Shane’s tactics to deflate our egos.

The book is probably worth a spin and it’s nice to see a contrarian view on the startup subject, you can check the book out at Amazon here
