From this synopsis:

Scott Shane, a leading expert in entrepreneurial activity in the United States and other countries, draws on the data from extensive research to provide accurate, useful information about who becomes an entrepreneur and why, how businesses are started, which factors lead to success, and which predict a likely failure. The Illusions of Entrepreneurship is an essential resource for everyone who has dreamed of starting a new business, for investors in start-ups, for policy makers attempting to facilitate the formation and survival of new businesses, and for researchers interested in the economic impact of entrepreneurial activity. Scott Shane offers research-based answers to these questions and many others:· Why do people start businesses?· What industries are popular for start-ups?· How many jobs do new businesses create?· How do entrepreneurs finance their start-ups?· What makes some locations and some countries more entrepreneurial than others?· What are the characteristics of the typical entrepreneur?· How well does the typical start-up perform?· What strategies contribute to the survival and profitability of new businesses over time?
Seems essential. Anyone have any experience with it?
