In this interview, we discuss two recent books with the popular Dr. Scott Shane.  They are  "Born Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders" and "The Illusions of Entrepreneurship."

Born Entrepreneurs, Born Leaders is the first book to review the entire range of scientific literature on genetic effects on organizational behavior and explain in a practitioner-friendly manner, how your DNA affects your workplace behavior. 

The Illusions of Entrepreneurship challenges the myths we hold about entrepreneurs in America - who they are, what they do, and how they succeed.  The book shows that the reality of entrepreneurship is decidedly different from the myths that have come to surround it.  Scott Shane, a leading expert in entrepreneurial activity in the United States and other countries, draws on the data from extensive research to provide accurate, useful information about who becomes an entrepreneur and why, how businesses are started, which factors lead to success and which predict a likely failure.
