Universities and Entrepreneurship: Meeting the educational and social challenges addresses the concerns on how universities nurture entrepreneurship and how this leads to their transformation into entrepreneurial universities. This novel edited volume attempts to answer the following timely questions: 1. What are intrinsic demands for entrepreneurship rooted to universities in the 21st century? 2. What are conducive environments for entrepreneurial learning in both academic and non-academic settings? 3. Do these attempts demonstrate differential impact across students from different disciplines, and more generally amongst the youth population? This eleventh volume of Contemporary Issues in Entrepreneurship Research is a valuable contribution to the intersection of research into entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurial universities. In acknowledging the varied and somewhat piecemeal approach taken to address these issues to date, this edited volume provides a more systematic and integrated perspective with relevance for students of entrepreneurship as well as for educators and policymakers.

This is the story of Alf Engers and the pursuit of speed, set against a backdrop of cycling clubs, shop-owners, framebuilders, riders, racers, team managers and officials. It loops from the Paddington Track to the Skol Six, Herne Hill to the National Road Race Championships and from Boroughbridge to Barnet, in and out of time and place to capture the truth of a racing career of unequalled achievement, charisma and controversy. Constructed from extensive interviews with Alf Engers, I Like Alf is the definitive tale of a mythical and charismatic folk hero of British cycling. Where I came from it was so very different: up at five o'clock in the morning, the tinkle of shoe plates on the road, the smell of embrocation, the stillness of the morning, just you and the timekeeper: 5-4-3-2-1-GO! It is the essence of cycling. If I had gone on to do what I wanted to do I would have won the Tour de France, but that's how the dice were rolled.
Touching the Rainbow tells the story of a young man, Pete, a victim of a dysfunctional childhood who is riddled with insecurity and self-doubt. He is not married, but has been engaged to his long-suffering girlfriend for 11 years. Suddenly, fate delivers a severe blow and he is killed in a car crash.To his horror, he becomes a trapped soul. His salvation arrives in the form of a celestial helper who tells him that it is all the emotional problems he suffered on earth that are keeping him from moving on. To free his soul, he must accomplish a mission that will force him to face up to all the fears and regrets he tried to shy away from when he was alive. However, in doing this, he also discovers some shocking revelations about his past, and a startling twist to the meaning of his former life... Touching the Rainbow has been inspired by the works of James Herbert; the simplistic yet realistic style of Herbert's TheRats led Paul to emulate the same style. The book will appeal to fans of paranormal romance fiction, as well as readers with a deep sentimental core and a natural curiosity about the mysteries of life.
