About the author

Enough to be inspired & motivated to put more time & focus towards the industry.
I highly recommend the book to anyone who's looking to get a lay of the PE land, the differences between VCs & buyout funds, and how it could benefit them (as an investor in the space, or an employee at PE-backed firms, or perhaps as a business owner who's considering selling to a PE-backed firm, and even a consultant serving the industry).
The author has worked as CEO of three different private equity backed firms and it feels like you’ve sat down with him to discuss entering the business.
A refreshing change from the academic and reporter written books on the subject.

-easy read, digestible chunks, I can imagine a good basic intro to young, innocent Execs. Working in investor relations it gives a good basic overview of equity waterfall from management’s perspective, which I’ve never really given much thought about
-very basic for anyone working in PE (but admittedly that’s not who the target audience is), some of the concepts of benefits of leverage could be fleshed out more, the grammar pedant in me spotted a couple of missing apostrophes. Oh and did I mention the sports analogies? For me baseball = rounders...
In summary the contents of this short book can probably be found for free with a few hours invested in a google search.
Adam makes us discovering it through parallels to the world of sport, his own rich experiences which makes it fun to read!
I enjoyed reading it, learned a lot and look forward the next upcoming book about Exit strategies!
Well done Adam!
Very easy read with lots of useful information that can be applied to all work settings.
