This is an excellent book especially for those who want to exploit business opportunities in a competitive terrain. It also features practical but innovative strategies of growing existing business. The book outlines how to record opportunities, how to choose which ones to pursue, how to analyse and deal with competition etc and introduces intriguing concepts such as opportunity set, real options reasoning etc. It's worth every penny

The authors sought to deliver strategies to create value in the face of "the pervasive sense of uncertainty." They may have taken a hundred more pages than necessary to do so, but they have delivered.
They have distilled old and new thoughts into a handful of mental models that I have used when helping business do things for the first time for the past few years to good effect. They are clear, communicable and successful.
