This is basically a handbook/text book. There is no strategic advice or much other then a guide and definitions of business terms.
The majority of the information is all based around US law.
Might be better as a physical book to be used as a reference when needing to understand a concept.
"Lots of corporate law in a compact form"
Minute for minute, this is a great example of the audio format, and great value. It is a very extensive survey (and refresher) of many corporate issues, in plain, commonly used and understandable terms. I plan to re-listen to this from time to time. I notice there is one by this author on IPOs also and I'm anxious to hear it.
"Exactly What I Hoped For"
This book provides a very solid foundation of everything that needs to be considered in an M&A transaction. As it is advised in the book, a team of professionals needs to be assembled to insure a successful transaction, but reading this book a couple of times, will help you speak the language and understand what is going on at every step when working with your team.
