Missing a key ingredient - deduct 2 stars April 12 2009
By Mdlle Tarponne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book misses a key ingredient in the M&A process. The book does not discuss the engagement process and the engagement letter. This is a serious oversight for a book that claims to be comprehensive. It is like a book on real estate transactions that does not discuss the listing agreement and 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.

Mergers and Acquisitions from A to Z Third Edition Oct. 20 2011
By Scott Miller, CPA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I recently read the complete Third Edition of this book and it is a significant improvement over the highly regarded and readible Second Edition. I have read many books on M&A and this book is distinguised for its thorough anlaysis of the topic in a highly understandable format. I have cited the book in articles I have written and unhesitatingly recommend this edition to professionals and business owners wishing to become knowledgeabe on this powerful topic. Clearly, the author has a storehouse of experience in this field and he passes along myriad insights on getting the deal right. I particularly appreciate the emphasis on defining technical terms and clearly indicating the appropriate steps to take in getting to "yes." There are so many ways for a deal to go wrong, it is refreshing to read a thorough analysis of keeping the transaction process on point. I cannot wait for the eventual Fourth Edition some day. Knowing the precision of the prior editions, it will be a rewarding study as well.

Great Book which Demystifies M&A - HIGHLY recommend Aug. 16 2012
By Tien Wong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
M&A is a highly complex discipline fraught with lots of risk. The majority of M&A deals wind up failing for a myriad of reasons. The most successful M&A practitioners have learned the business through experience and hard knocks.

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.

Excellent Guide but focused on Major M&A's Nov. 19 2012
By Paul H - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book which I have used a few times whenever we have gone through the evaluation of an acquisition. However it is very much focused on larger organizations, and has less application for SME's. It is certainly worth the cost, especially the section on post-merger activities.
