Publisher's Summary

Designed for an MBA course on private equity, this textbook (now version 1.7) aims to familiarize any listener with the jargon and mechanics of private equity using simplified examples, real-life situations, and results from thorough academic studies. The intention is to have a book that can be listened more like a novel than like a regular textbook. In order to have long-lasting impact on listeners, I believe in making things as simple as possible, boiling everything down to the essence, going straight to the point, and, most importantly, writing in an informal and hopefully entertaining way. The objective is for the listener to play this audiobook with anticipation of having a good educational time.

Well done

Good coverage of concepts and excellent case studies combined with an example PE entrepreneur’s journey. No fluff and a lot covered. Primarily covers U.S. market.

Attempt to make it accessible fails utterly

The author has tried to make private equity accessible and easy to understand by explaining the entire things in terms of Alice in Wonderland. This is not only grating and patronising, but also confuses matters far more than a straightforward, grown-up explanation of private equity would be. A silly gimmick that fails utterly.

very good all rounder

reminded me of private equity de-mystified; yet i found this one to be more enjoyable due to the storyline and the style of writing. the former focusing more on being informative and academically valid, this book has no less rigour in terms of academic ground and research based facts and arguments and has a good collection of case studies and historical examples.
people looking for advanced ideas, that is not the place but it will serve as a great all rounder to initiate anyone to PE.
