It includes everything you need to know. It contains all the questions to ask, the factors to consider in deciding whether and when to buy or sell and how to weigh them, the checklists to create, and the pitfalls to guard against.

Top Customer Reviews
What the author, Andrew Sherman, does in this book is break down the complexities of the M&A process into understandable components. Whether you're a buyer, a seller, an intermediary, or a financier, this book is very helpful in helping you see the M&A deal process from a variety of vantage points.
It's obvious that the author has a lot of M&A experience, and that helps him convey his thinking to the reader. I have found this book to be very helpful in my own business, as we think through various acquisition strategies and risk analysis scenarios.
In short, while no one book can be the "Bible" of M&A, Sherman's "Mergers & Acquisitions: From A-Z" is pretty close. It's a highly practical guide which does an excellent job of simplifying and demystifying the M&A deal process.
I would like to see this topic covered from the perspective of buyers, sellers and intermediaries. There should be examples and a detailed discussion of the various sections of engagement letters. There should be some discussion for buyers and sellers on how to make sure the engagement terns are not harmful and there should be some discussion on the terms and conditions intermediaries should insist on. Also, various commission schedules should be discussed.
I would also find it interesting if these authors shared experiences in hunting for deals from the advisors' perspective and selecting advisors from the buyers' and sellers' perspective.
The book is well written and chock full of good information. I just wish it would have started earlier in the process. I rate it three stars. Four, if covered the engagement process and one more if I can find the documents in electronic form online.
