"'Writing about small firms all too often bores us with rather abstract survey-based data, irritates us with anecdotal snippets or frustrates us un-theorised and over-detailed descriptions. Simon Down not only avoids these problems, he delights us with a rich, detailed and entertaining account of life in a small firm. Above all, though, his account is informative and revealing, especially about the entrepreneurial aspects of small firm life and what this means for the people involved.' - Tony J.
