Sharp as Expected

I recommend this to anyone as a first toe dip into understanding PE. I work for a very large Public Industrial Conglomerate. We do business with PE to sell businesses that do not fit the portfolio anymore. Now I see why PE is relevant in this function.

I sat on a plane with a young lady that does PE for a living and owns the company. I did not belong in the conversation, but now I understand why PE has such a profitable niche in M&A. There are things that PE can do that Public companies just can't. I loved it, will read more about PE.

Narrator is great, very clear, and great speed control

The title had more juice that the recording

What would have made The Strategic Secret of Private Equity (Harvard Business Review) better?

The title had more juice that the recording. Like listening to paint dry. At least it was not long.
