"The author clearly has an intimate knowledge of his subject, and communicates his thoughts lucidly using a minimum of economic jargon ... what makes this book of special note are the chapters concerning the design of the database and the substantive lessons to be learned from considering this set of investigations collectively ... Readers should be encouraged by 10 pages of well-chosen, up-to-date reference materials and a particularly comprehensive index in this book." - Journal of Prod. Innov. Manag.
