Publisher's Summary

There are lots of books that offer advice on how to start a company – but the vast majority are wrong. As Enterprise Editor for the Financial Times, Jonathan Moules has profiled hundreds of companies and their owners. Here, he uses this knowledge to explain why, in many cases, the received wisdom on entrepreneurship isn’t necessarily the best way of achieving success.
Packed with examples of high-flying entrepreneurs who have done things differently – including the New York-based GILT Groupe and Silicon Valley advertising company Criteo – Moules demonstrates why you don’t need a business plan, why there’s nothing wrong with copying someone else’s idea, why you should put your prices up when things get tough, and why cutting costs can kill your business.

Disorganized, brings little new

What would have made The Rebel Entrepreneur better?

The only thing vaguely interesting about this is the chapter 1 position against external funding in early stages. The rest are verbose platitudes filled with examples of enterprises that are already successes, with little in the way of failures or struggling start-ups.

Maybe this would make sense to a middle manager. For me, in a tech start-up -- waste of time.


Has The Rebel Entrepreneur turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Rebel Entrepreneur?

Everything but the firs two chapters.
