Founder and CEO, 1-800-Flowers.com
Valuable insight into the practical actions required to build a successful enterprise. With each chapter, you will find information that you can apply immediately to your venture.
Bob Reiss's book is a must for all entrepreneurs. His down to earth advice shows us how to execute an idea while minimizing risk. Heavy emphasis is on: competing and operating, value customers, relationship building, and providing special incentives to those who share the risk. Reiss is a very special person and his book is special -- there is no other book like this one in the marketplace.Dr. Charles N. Toftoy

Low Risk, High Reward is the most practical guide to starting and running a business that I have seen. While it is comprehensive in covering the elements of entrepreneurship, its strength lies in its real life "how to" approach to problems. Bob Reiss is a great out-of-the-box thinker; his own experiences illustrate an amazing ability to be creative in the face of different challenges, and, coupled with the stories he relates about others, provide instructive insight into what it is really like being in your own entrepreneurs at all stages of their business' life cycle, but I think those just starting out or completing starting out will find it invaluable.Jerry Shafir

Reiss uses excellent examples to illustrate his principles and provides many pearls of wisdom based on his wealth of personal experiences. I intend to buy a copy for every one of the entrepreneurs with whom we have made a venture investment.Mike Hsieh

After reviewing the manuscript of Bob Reiss' new book, Low Risk, High Reward, I wish to offer my wholehearted endorsement of the book. It is a wonderful job of describing the practical realities of successful entrepreneurship. Bob has obviously been there. He knows how to spread risk among those who have an interest in the enterprise and how to provide the incentives foe each to want to make the venture a success. His R & R case is a graphic example of Low Risk - High Reward. Its success is possible because of bob's experience in an industry that led him to recognize an opportunity and then know how to capitalize on it. He was masterful in, as Stevenson says in his definition of entrepreneurship, " the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled". . . His book is a must reading for any serious entrepreneur.James H. Hunter

I believe we should teach Bob's approach to financial analysis at the Harvard Business School. For the founder and grower of a business, Bob's chapter on numeracy alone is worth the price of the book.Howard H. Stevenson

Low Risk High Reward (LRHR) is required reading in my Technical Entrepreneurship class. We study how to leverage technologies into businesses within entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial environments. LRHR is a practical guide for start-up critical success factors. Bob brings a unique prespective to the challenges of starting and growing a successful firm. I highly recommend it for novice and experienced entrepreneurs.Michael A. Marasco
