Illusions of Entrepreneurship

Scott Shane from Case Western Reserve University recently published The Illusions of Entrepreneurship: The Costly Myths That Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Policy Makers Live By. Here is where you can read a good book summary.

He also has an entrepreneurship quiz related to his book that tries to find out if you understand the reality of entrepreneurship or if you believe the myths. I scored 45% on the quiz. Hey, at least I beat Guy Kawasaki. ;)

I ordered the book off Amazon. My score of 45% definitely shows that I succumb to more of the myths about entrepreneurship rather than the realities.

    Dang – I got a 45% as well. I think I’ll pick up the book.

    Hi – I’m a currently-defrocked entrepreneurship professor (doing economic development – so I’ve been reading up on this) but… SS said I might “mention” that an entrepreneurship Ph.D got a 95% (albeit with being current and guessing remarkably well, LOL). What would be scary is to see the scores that non-entrep biz profs would get. (Can you get a negative score? LOL)

    Seriously, though- there are plenty of myths & misconceptions about how entrepreneurs think & about how to help them learn, etc. Whether education or public policy we need to be driven by facts, not “conventional wisdom”! (Sorta like how entrepreneurs find their value props, eh?)
