Functionally acceptable. If you are unfamiliar with acquisitions in the public accounting market, it's okay. Here's a better idea after you read the book. Take the basic knowledge that you get from the book. Talk to 5 CPAs who have sold their firm, and talk to 5 CPAs who have acquired firms. Then, talk to an acquisitions professional and an acquisitions attorney.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
