4/5 - Well-narrated "list" of a several dozen deals. Lacks "juicy" details.
Reviewed in Canada on January 21, 2021
Super well-written book with great insights into the deal-making process of some
of the largest PE Shops.
One critique is that the book is super "factual" and kind of jumps around from Blackstone's deals to competitors, spitting out deal after deal. As such, it kind of feels dry after 300 pages.
I would have appreciated more insights into the life, thought process and struggles (mental, psychological, etc.) of some of these PE bosses. It instead felt like a well-narrated list of a several dozen deals.
