5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, complete guide to entrepreneurship
Most people admire self-made men and women - the Bill Gateses and Anita Roddicks who establish successful companies and reap a multitude of rewards. However, the path to start-up success is fraught with roadblocks, detours, washouts and dead ends.

Most people admire self-made men and women - the Bill Gateses and Anita Roddicks who establish successful companies and reap a multitude of rewards. However, the path to start-up success is fraught with roadblocks, detours, washouts and dead ends. Harvard Business School professor Noam Wasserman identifies the common "founder's dilemmas" and details their short- and long-term consequences. More specifically, he exposes the tacit tension that exists between creating wealth and maintaining control. This isn't a quick read; it's an in-depth, intelligent analysis based on 10 years of extensive research. At times, you may find yourself wishing for a bullet-point list. Yet getAbstract encourages would-be founders, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to keep reading: You'll find Wasserman's insights and solutions well worth your time - and they may make the difference between your start-up's success or failure.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a must., 3 July 2013

When you start your adventure in building a business you know you have to do a business plan, and register the company. Even before you create the company YOU MUST read "The Founder's Dilemma" simply because if you don't do it you will regret at some stage, as simple as that. I haven't yet finished to read this book but all I read until now it has been very very important and something I would say it has been crucial......
I can tell you that there are some mistakes that you cannot afford to do! No one can, and the only way to avoid them is to know before what the consequences will be of the spontaneous or ingenuous actions you would do. All the start-up accelerators should suggest this book to their companies and in general all the start-ups should know of the existence of this scientific research able to address great part of crucial choices that founders will face at some stage.

It is a great book, delivered on time, new nicely packed! I firstly found it while reading some of the recommended business books on Forbes and decided to read it. The result: it was not a waste of time!
