Many chapters before you read anything meaningful
What would have made Little Black Book of Economic Development (2nd Edition) better?
I would place this book in the top five worst books I have ever read. This is definitely not a practitioners book and it begins with three chapters almost entirely filled with unsubstantiated (no empirical evidence) claims regarding the state of current economic development leadership and a sky is falling mentality. I am not opposed to some of the authors conjecture, but he is not a compelling writer that knows how to mix meaningful data with the broad far reaching positions he has on the field of economic development. I would highly recommend you take a pass on this book and maybe read Boomtown USA: The 7-1/2 Keys to Big Success in Small Towns.
