Based on Bill Fisher's three-day seminars that regularly sell out all over the world, this audiobook offers the kind of capital-raising street smarts no entrepreneur can do without. As a banker in Silicon Valley in the '80s and a businessman who founded a number of successful companies beginning in the '90s, Fisher has seen firsthand the kind of rookie mistakes aspiring entrepreneurs make that end up stopping them before they have a chance to get started.

This book is light on unique content. It’s more of an overview addressing some high level points which are explored in much better detail in books like Venture Deals and the Start-Up CEO. And since this this book was published after those, it feels more like lazy copying than a coincidence.

After a few chapters I thought it sounded like more of a “three day seminar” (more RA RA than substance) type of book and I looked at the authors current profession and he is indeed a seminar circuit guy.

The audio performer also sounded like a snake oil salesman although it’s unclear if that is the content of the book or just how he sounds.

I should have known from the title that it was going to be a waste of money. Save your money.
