Good, but not worth the money,
This review is from: Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist (Kindle Edition)
This is a "nice" book, but depends who is reading. If you are an entrepreneur with no background in finance, this book may prove a great help to you. But if you are a seasoned entrepreneur or you are a founder with finance background, this book adds little value.
There are more than capitalization table to the mathematics of VC financing and certainly more than Prisoner's dilemma to the negotiation tactics; it also cover very less on the acquisition of startups.
Moreover, most the stuff can be found online free of cost including on Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson blogs/website; and also on askvc website.
If you are working in VC industry, this book is almost worthless to you. But if you are first-time entrepreneur with no finance background, please go and get this book; it compiles most of the stuff in one place.
