5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best book! 21 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
Initially borrowed this book from the Business School for an MBA course. I would say it is the best book I have found so far for studying M&A related subjects. The author of the book clearly has very extensive experience and deep knowledge of the subject. Topics are clearly explained and cover the whole M&A transaction process. The strategies and tactics descibed are very well described. It is also a very useful book for desktop reference. So I decided to buy the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for M&A practitioners 17 Aug 2013
By Culture Enthusiast TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Outstanding text on M&As, very comprehensive. it touches upon all aspsects of the deals from strategy/synergies, types of mergers to valuation, antitrust legislation and HR issues. I really like the focus on European deals in addition to the US one. The section on defence strategies is by itself worth the price of the book.

The information is up to date and it is a book where also the notes at the end of the chapters add value. It is definetely aimed at people with business experience or/and MBA students.
Such a shame it is not available in Kindle version. One of the best books on M&As on the market (and I have read a lot of them!).

The only minor issue is that there is not a list of the cases presented in the book and if you read something of interest with regards to a case you have to search in the entire book as there is no index.

As the core text book in my MBA course, the five stages is designed to guide my learning process from pre to post M&A activities. This book covers all topics associated with M&A arena and it will equip anyone with a good understanding about the theories, empirical practices and primary and secondary research outcomes. Definitely it is an ideal choice for any MBA student and business manager who are interested in M&A activities in this global dynamic business context. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you need one book on M&A - this is it! 5 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
The author is both extensive in his coverage of all aspects of M&A including citing real world examples and simple in his explanation of complex theories and behaviours. Without a doubt, this is a book well worth acquiring if one is interested in M&A either as a student or as business manager about to engage in M&A activity.
