If you are beginning from scratch, you are in good hands.

The only thing you need to have is a desire to start learning. If you are familiar with some of it, you can build on it here.

  • The basics, terms, roles of people, and virtually all you need to know about private equity.
  • The Evolutions that made private equity funds what it is today.
  • What made PE a unique, an important business funding firm. 
  • How the PE funds are being invested in minority investments, and why sellers refer staking on minor investment, what well informed PE buyers see in minority stakes. 
  • How hedge and private equity funds are structured.
  • How to look and win like a pro when handling minority deals. 
  • Effective growth in private equity. 
  • Buying outs in PE and its approaches, how it works, analyzing its risks, making more of it, and funding.

Great consultant listen

Great listen for a consultant looking to know how the best of the best handle an M&A transaction. Really insightful with actionable trips and tricks. Only downside is I would say it would be difficult for someone without an intermediate understanding of M&A to follow at times.

It's a very informative book.

This is a certifiable book legitimized even in spite of the money, not in any manner like some various books out there which in some cases basically reorder from different sources. It is made enough for him to see, yet covers the critical things. I recommend this book to everyone.
