4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By the bondtrader on May 12, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is just another revenue stream for someone with no scruples and I suspect even less talent. There is absolutely nothing here that anyone with even rudimentary knowledge of the subject matter doesn't already know. In addition to that it is also poorly written and almost unreadable.

Can these deals be done? Of course they can. But the truth is that the math is very complicated and the ability to communicate with investors and bankers are paramount. Most of these LBO's are done among a very small group of people who know each other very well.

The "author" mentions the guru of these affairs, namely Mike Milken, who invented the junk bond device that enables the minnow to swallow the whale. Back in the 80's this was very new but it is now 30 years old and everyone who cares knows exactly how this is done and are actively searching for the firms that fit the criteria. Sadly, after all the downsizing and restructuring many of the good candidates for this are long gone. The pros found the 40 cent dollars a long time ago. Simply too many highly trained people chasing too few deals.

Having said all this, this book is just horrifyingly bad!

Stay far,far away if you value your time and money.
