By A Customer on March 27, 2002
Format: Hardcover
On the whole this is a good book for someone looking to get an overview of M and A. It is well written and reasonably well organized, with an interesting discussion of recent transactions and trends. However, the book continues to suffer from some of the problems in earlier editions. It omits subjects that one would expect to find in an effective M and A textbook. These include integration, alternative strategies to M and A such as JVs, a discussion of how acquisitions support business strategies, how target companies can be identified, target firm contact strategies, etc., how to conduct due diligence, how to build M and A financial models, negotiation strategies, sophisticated valuation methods, etc. There are a number of other books which do a much better job in addressing these areas rather than providing an overview of industry trends, etc. Examples of such books include Fred Weston's M&A (the brief edition) and Donald Depamphilis (?) book Mergers, Acquisitions, and other Restructuring. There are books on this subject that are gems, however, Gaughan's isn't' one of them.

I anxiously awaited the publication of this third edition. And, I was not at all dissapointed. This book provides the most current, comprehensive, and thought provoking information on corporate restructerings. The case studies and reseach are very practical and add immense value to the book. It is the only book that I am aware of that thoroughly addresses the corporate finance, legal, economic, and valuation considerations for all types of corporate restructerings (M&As, LBOs, joint ventures, etc.)

This book is an excellent pragmatic treatment of the topic of mergers. It surveys the relevant research and combines it with many practical examples to demonstrate its relevance. The abundant case studies serve to drive home each major point. The topics covered feature a broad international focus throughout the book. Given the fact that mergers, acquisitions and corporate restructurings are now an international phenomena, we need a book which covers the topic from such a focus rather than just focusing on a U.S.-oriented treatment.
The other major advantage of this book over other merger books is its chapters on valuation. Practitioners will find this invaluable. I would strongly recommend this book to all interested in the field.

This book provided me with a solid foundation on M&A and restructuring activity. It is written in a very clear, concise manner. The case studies examined the most recent activity and made the book even more useful. In addition, the strategies and techniques that the book provides made the price well worth it.
