To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Unfortunately the only book on the subject. Doesn't go into any great detail on most of the sub-topics, just rather mentions them and tells why they are important. It would be great if a someone who works in this field would write a better book.
I have been very disappointed in this book. I don't understand why it took nearly one hundred pages to (1) give a basic understanding of what operational DD is and (2) why it's important. Given it's subtitle, "Tools to Evaluate Liquidity, Valuation and Documentation", it should have moved quickly to that. One gets the sense that the book's purpose is to sell the services of Corgentum Consulting, which of course performs operational DD on private equity funds. In short, enough in the book to (1) justify the need for operational DD and (2) tease the reader on CG's ability. This is obviously not the first time that someone has written a book to pitch their services, but it was not what I was expecting. If one is going to buy and read it, I recommend skipping most of the first 90 some odd pages to get to the meat of the book.
