Read Venture Deals on a flight from London to Johannesburg recently, and really enjoyed it, so wanted to write something positive ;-)

Busy with a supportive investor convertible note negotiation so we can keep the top line growing, and the book has given me a broader perspective than I had before I read it -> "Economics and Control" is probably the best three word wisdom I've read in a long while. Book is written in an engaging style, and tone of voice is not preachy. Easy to read and digest.

For first timers, definitely recommended.
For old times, think there is definitely enough meat to add to or change perspectives.

Recommended. #JFDI.

In the process of looking for investment for my startup I was recommend this book to read before doing anything else, and I wasn't disappointed. The biggest fear in going to ask for investment is worrying you won't understand what they are talking about or that you will look a fool for not being able to answer questions because you don't understand any of the terminology. Reading this book will go a long way in helping you overcome those fears. It explains everything in an easy to understand and easy to read manner and the Entrepreneur's perspective sections are also insightful.

In short if you are looking to grasp a better understand of venture capitalists and the terms used this is a must read.

This book is an excellent read - I really, really enjoyed it and found it very useful.

As the CEO of an early internet company I found Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson's insights, knowledge and experience really useful. Even though I am based in England and not the US, the advice is relevant to anyone looking to be well versed and educated in dealing with Venture Capitalist's and Investors in their company.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Buy it, you will not regret it.

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.
