    "Easy to understand"
    Would you listen to #BreakInto VC again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to Break Into VC again because there's a number of formulas for understanding how to determine whether or not a business will be a profitable investment, and I don't think one listen is enough.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in five sittings. I think its appropriate for a book like this to let things sink in.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're not familiar with the inner-workings of venture capital, then this is the audiobook to get. This is not an elementary school introduction, but it is presented in such a way that someone completely unfamiliar with the subject can jump in and wrap their head around it. Some books and websites forget that not everyone is familiar with the terminology and the methodology of venture capital. Bradley starts you off on a nice foundation and builds upon that foundation little by little. A great guidebook on the subject, and the narrator was perfect for the subject matter.

    "The Big Picture of Possibilities"

    Shark Tank has really put venture capital on the map, but I was compelled to understand how the sharks think, rather than be a mere viewer. Granted, you can learn a lot from the show, and there are many websites now on the subject, but Bradley puts everything together in this audiobook. The narrator was an exceptional choice as well. His pronunciations are clear, and his delivery of the information could have been dry, lifeless and monotone, but it is alive and enjoyable to listen to. Invest the money in this title; it's an investment in yourself.

    If you could sum up #BreakInto VC in three words, what would they be?

    Manual For Success


    What was one of the most memorable moments of #BreakInto VC?

    I like how he broke down the formulas for assessing the value of a company, and how you can project those numbers to see where the company will likely be in the near future.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You can easily listen to this audiobook in one sitting, but I suggest periodically pausing it to take notes, and to practice the various math formulas that are given.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wouldn't change anything about this. The narrator was fantastic. I get a sense that he's not the kind of guy that goes on vacation and blows people off, but dedicates himself to mastering the craft of voice over narration.

    Bradley's information is solid, and I can imagine he's going to be a rising star in the world of investments, but I hope his success isn't going to go to his head, and he'll continue to teach us "little people" these skills.

    This is a great place to start in understanding venture capital. Even if you're just planning to open your own business, this book is excellent; it will give you an understanding of how a "shark" looks at a business. Think like a shark and get this audiobook.

    "The Venture Capital Manual"

    Many thanks to Bradley Miles for putting this book together. The print version of the book has over 90 five star reviews so I had to grab a copy of the audiobook.

    Bradley takes you through the terminology of venture capital and the basic formulas for understanding how to determine the present value of a company, and its projected value over the next few years. This knowledge is critical for landing a job at a venture capital firm, but also for entrepreneurs who want to understand where their company is right now, and where it's going.

    I wish I had this book seventeen years ago when I opened my first business with some family members. Bradley makes it easy to understand exactly where a company is at, and if an investment is worth it.

    Funny that I was just watching The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon, and his character works at a venture capital firm. Of course, there's Shark Tank and the television show, The Profit, so we can see that the popularity of venture capital is skyrocketing.

    As Bradley says, it's time to break into venture capital. Get the audiobook, you'll love it. Great narration too. John's voice is perfect for this kind of content.

    Thanks Bradley!
