    If you are a business owner who is even remotely thinking about acquiring outside funding this book is a must.

    Straightforward, intelligent, forthcoming and bold enough to state what would appear to be otherwise obvious, notwithstanding the ongoing requirement for them in venture situations: that 5 year financial projections are always wrong.

    I've forced interns and former employees to read this book before going off to do their own thing.

    I was in banking for a long time and also ran a hedge fund so in principal capital raising isn't new to me but raising equity capital for a technology firm is a different animal.

    But i thought it was a great primer that will save entrepreneurs money because they won't need to be taught this info by their lawyer (and i think you must have a lawyer to negotiate a funding deal unless you have lots of experience).

    One great tip i read (i can't remember if it was in this book) was to speak with the ceos of companies that didn't do well or that have failed and ask how the vc behaved in those stressful times when they need to lookout for their lps interests which may be at the expense of the entrepreneur.

    Clearly highlights areas that an entrepreneur should be focused on in a negotiation and ones to avoid.

    I read several books on venture deals, and many of them use convoluted language in extended sentence structures that will make your brain hurt, and that's not what anyone looking at a term sheet needs.
