Summary:The idea that aspiring entrepreneurs and their professors should be instructed in a method that increases their emotional intelligence and their business acumen is extraordinary. This is the book that the faculty at Paul Quinn College and I have been waiting for. That applause you hear in the background is our current and future students and the lives they will change through this version of entrepreneurship.'--Michael J. Sorrell, President, Paul Quinn College, Dallas, US. 'Teaching entrepreneurship is really a challenge to educators around the world.

This book is an important contribution to this issue, and I am sure that it will help educators to improve their classes and to engage their students.'--Tales Andreassi, FGV-EAESP, São Paulo, Brazil.
