‘How to Write Great Business Cases is a fantastic resource for any case researcher, regardless of experience. This extremely thorough and comprehensive book provides readers everything they need to get their case writing projects off the ground and to improve their existing skills. I am especially impressed with the value provided through practical, usable tips for case writers. High level and big picture is prevalent throughout the book, but it is the details that really set it apart. I have, in the past, considered the idea of writing a book on how to write a case, and now, because this one exists, I don’t see the need.’
– Eric Dolansky, Editor Case Research Journal, Brock University, Canada
