Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tom Taulli has done it again. His examination of M&A gets an A–plus for getting to the meat of the matter. If the business world had more of this no-nonsense kind of accounting analysis, perhaps it wouldn’t be such a shark-eat-shark world out there.”
Thom Calandra, editor in chief, CBS MarketWatch

“Every company needs reliable guidance through M&A. The Complete M&A Handbook will help any company through the painstaking process. Tom Taulli offers invaluable advice in the critical steps to buying or selling any size business.”
Robin Richards, CEO, Vivendi Universal Net USA

“Tom Taulli is masterful in making the M&A game understandable. Whether you’re on the sell or buy side, this book is a must read.”
Alan M. Meckler, chairman and CEO, INT Media Group

“Taulli describes the M&A process clearly and succinctly. This book will help any business owner be better prepared for the big change.”
Walter Cruttenden, Cruttenden Partners

“M&A is the seemingly easy process of bringing buyer and seller together. The reality is that selling a business is quite complex, time consuming, and risky. Tom Taulli does an admirable job distilling a complex subject into an easily understood road map for enterprises of all sizes.”
John McCracken, managing director, M&A, WR Hambrecht and Co.

“An excellent overview of the M&A process. Very readable.”
Robert Machiz, CEO, MoneySoft Inc.
