“Just finished reading your ‘The Accidential Entrepreneur’. Part 1 is a wonderful adventure story, and great gas (!) too. Part 2 contains the best practical advice I’ve read yet in an Irish book on getting a venture off the ground.

Dr Finbarr Bradley, Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, University College Dublin

“This is an adventure book! And don’t believe Gerry’s claim that it was all an accident. It’s a tale of effort, enthusiasm and enterprise. Enjoy it.”

Senator Feargal Quinn, founder of Superquinn

“The Accidental Entrepreneur … demonstrates the essential characteristic needed to be successful in business, whether by accident or design, which is the unremitting sense of passion for their business activity that all self-made successful entrepreneurs have in abundance.”

From the foreword by Sir David Barclay KSG

“Gerry Murphy’s book shows vividly a restless entrepreneurial spirit in action, from the regeneration initiatives in his native Churchtown village in north Cork to the audacious establishment of the GreatGas service stations.”

Senator Mary White, co-founder of Lir Chocolates

“Gerry is a fantastic businessperson. This book is both interesting and insightful, a must-read for any business owner. Gerry’s passion, creativity and determination are inspiring.”

Bobby Kerr, chairman of Insomnia, founding panelist on Dragon’s Den and radio broadcaster

“Passion and integrity are two of Gerry’s greatest qualities, qualities very evident throughout his life and this book. If you aspire to owning your own business, The Accidental Entrepreneur will inspire and set you on course.”

John Lowe, the Money Doctor
