Review of the hardback: 'While recent years have seen a welcome growth of research into small companies and business start-ups, acadmeics still face the problem of getting a clear mental image of what exactly is under consideration ... Research in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) also faces some daunting problems of collecting and interpreting data ... this collection of 13 papers is an impressive indication of the value of systematic analysis in this field ... the substantive contributions [are] consistently well-written and often insightful ... the key lesson that emerges is the need for caution when attempting grand generalisations ... the volume is a testament to the principle that goos research should focus on interesting problems, even it the domain is complex and defies simplistic conclusions.'
