This book offers valuable insights for anyone interested in the venture capital process, entrepreneurs and VCs alike. If you'd like to better understand how VCs think, this is definitely the book to read. There are great anecdotes interspersed throughout, which makes it a fun and quick read--I read the whole book in a part of one day. Bussgang shares his in-depth knowledge through stories of successful entrepreneurs such as the founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey; founder of LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman; and founder of Constant Contact, Gail Goodman, one which I personally found inspiring.
What I appreciate most about the book is the great advice and wisdom that Bussgang offers, not just from his personal experiences, but also from those of his colleagues and mentors. By openly exploring the VC process through captivating accounts of entrepreneurs and VCs, Bussgang shows that finding the right VC-Entrepreneur partnership is not only essential, but can also feel like a match made in heaven. If that's the kind of partnership you're interested in making now or ever, this is definitely the book to read.
Mastering the VC Game really is the only book of its kind.
