Editorial Reviews

'Professors Jim Stewart and Graham Beaver, both of whom are well known and highly respected academic researchers in this field, have succeeded in putting together an empirically rigorous, coherent and informative volume of well-written chapters on a relatively underdeveloped but very important research topic.' - Harry Matlay, UCE Birmingham, The Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development 'This is an excellent book and I would unreservedly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in training and HRD in SMEs. It is a well designed and researched volume with good quantitative and qualitative studies that would satisfy even the most discerning and knowledgeable reader. Academics, researchers, students and owner/managers as well as trainers, small business advisers and policy makers - could all benefit from this specialised book.' - Harry Matlay, UCE Birmingham, The Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development
