This book was written a little dry. It reminded me a bit of all the college lectures I’ve sat through, dull but highly informative. A few times the author repeats herself verbatim. It’s unclear if she does so because she feels the point must be stressed, or if she’s expecting the reader to jump around in the book. The case studies seemed to be a mismatch for the overall purposes of the book as they focused on individuals starting new businesses as opposed to buying or selling the business. The information is detailed so if you are a notice the book warrants rereading. Overall not a bad read.

The book includes a CD that contains the complete book plus a sample business plan that can be modified to suit your needs. Another benefit of the book is the simplified explanation of how to do a financial analysis of the prospective business. This analysis tells you a lot about the way a business operates and if the business is worth the investment risk.

The financial information alone is well worth the purchase of the book.
