You really do get the "feel" of a deal,
This review is from: The Feel of the Deal (Kindle Edition)
I am struck by a couple of things about Robert Sher's The Feel of the Deal.
1) Its a well-presented and easy-to-read summary of a what goes on inside the head and heart of an acquisition-minded private company CEO.
2) Its a challenge to combine narrative with insights that a reader can apply to his/her situation. A worthwhile discussion on "morals of the story" can easily disrupt the story itself. The author addressees this dilemma in an innovative way. He tells you the story of what happened in a chronological manner, tells you what moral he took from an event and points the reader to a short essay on the moral at the end of the book.
3) The author is very open about what his thoughts were at that point in time and how he went about meeting the challenges of the moment. In the separate essay section, he describes in detail what information weighed on his thinking at the time. He also shares techniques he used to convert data into information he could use.
Overall, this a great read. The author has wisdom to share and does so in an engaging manner.
