"This is a REALLY IMPORTANT book. The companies that pass through
No Man's Land are the dynamos of the American economy, creating the
lion's share of new jobs and producing our most important
innovations. Doug Tatum knows more about the subject, and has
thought more deeply about it, than anyone else on the face of the
earth. He's also lived through No Man's Land in his own
company-which sets him apart from most others who have written
about the passage from small to big. His book provides a ton of
useful information for entrepreneurs who are in the middle of No
Man's Land, approaching it, or just wondering about it."
-BO BURLINGHAM, editor at large at Inc. magazine, author of Small Giants
"This book has renewed my faith that the end-game is worth the challenging journey. I'll re-read and reference No Man's Land like I do Good to Great."
-SKEETTER McCORKLE, president of McCorkle Nurseries (an emerging growth company)
"No Man's Land is invaluable. I wish every CEO seeking funding from venture capitalists would read it."
-TUFF YEN, founder and managing partner of Seraph Group
