Booklist Review

The latest volume in this series presents 25 actual plans for small businesses, ranging from a bagel shop to a taxi service. There is also a template for readers to use in creating their own plans. We reviewed the first volume in our April 15, 1995, issue.


Choice Review

Kahrs presents 33 complete small business plans. Following a brief foreword on the planning process, the plans are presented alphabetically by business type. Although the majority of examples are represented by an alias, they are the actual plans of existing business units. The businesses discussed include a diverse group of entrepreneurial types, from accounting and consulting services to boutiques, food service companies, hospitality organizations, retailers, publishers, and two organizations providing virtual reality facilities. Skillful editing preserves the unique differences among the plans while providing the reader with a common framework of analysis. An excellent "Glossary of Small Business Terms," a selected bibliography, and a geographical listing of 750 small business development centers conclude the presentation. Especially appropriate for libraries supporting small business and entrepreneurial studies, this is an excellent reference work that should be a part of every business collection. S. R. Kahn; University of Cincinnati
