At that time there were only a few textbooks in the field, so I would have appreciated reading How to Become an Entrepreneurship Educator . As the author states in the preface, an important aim of this edited book is to “help other educators understand the journeys other colleagues have undertaken to become entrepreneurship educators”. Reading 20 journeys of entrepreneurship educators from different countries and educational contexts is a great learning journey for the reader. This kind of reading gives inspiration, interesting ideas and raises self-efficacy, optimism, hope and resilience – four key components of our educational psychological capital.’ – Alain Fayolle, EMLYON Business School, France 2020 200 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 002 6 £80.00 / $120.00 Sept 2021 Paperback 978 1 80220 508 4 c £25.00 / c $40.00 eBook • Elgaronline • How To Guides Investigation Reports ConvenienceThemes and Review Maturity Petter Gottschalk, BI Norwegian Business School, Norway ‘Dr. Gottschalk’s book is an excellent example of the power of case studies.
