Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurship, Silberman College of Business, Fairleigh Dickinson University. Madison: NJ. By Billy R. Brocato Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas BRB029@SHSU.EDU There are few management and organizational researchers who do not recognize the increasingly important subfield of organizational innovation and entrepreneurial practices. Certainly the topics and research conducted in this subfield of investigation have expanded over the last decade. For example, a simple Google search of “business innovation” returns more than 27 million hits and a search for “entrepreneurship” garnered 52 million results. That said, the Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurship’s latest edited volume Entrepreneurship and Innovation: Global Insights from 24 Leaders, presented a readable and pragmatic account of the accounts of regional, state, national, and international firms’ organizational leadership.

The book may not be viewed as an academic undertaking, but the framework definitely structures the conversational style into serious scholarly topics.
