Lots of corporate law in a compact form

Minute for minute, this is a great example of the audio format, and great value. It is a very extensive survey (and refresher) of many corporate issues, in plain, commonly used and understandable terms. I plan to re-listen to this from time to time. I notice there is one by this author on IPOs also and I'm anxious to hear it.

Topical discussion

Very little actionable information. It effectively tells you to hire professional advisors and surveys they high level topics that they'll go deep on. But I didn't get enough from the book to be able to interview and effectively select between prospective advisors.

Exactly What I Hoped For

This book provides a very solid foundation of everything that needs to be considered in an M&A transaction. As it is advised in the book, a team of professionals needs to be assembled to insure a successful transaction, but reading this book a couple of times, will help you speak the language and understand what is going on at every step when working with your team.

Not great for audiobook

This is basically a handbook/text book. There is no strategic advice or much other then a guide and definitions of business terms.

The majority of the information is all based around US law.

Might be better as a physical book to be used as a reference when needing to understand a concept.
