Great overview of business readiness

We all know the wisdom of beginning with the end in mind, however when it comes to selling a business, we tend to miss that part, instead focusing on the building part. Adam's book is a great nuts and bolts overview of how to set up your business not only for operational success, but ultimate success in a sale or transition. Did you know 50% of all businesses are purchased by private equity nowadays? His other book on private equity transactions is worth a read as well!

Excellent intro

As an owner-operated business I found this very interesting. I learned a lot about strategy, sales team and pitfalls to look out for. This book is straightforward and a good read for anyone to understand the buy-sell platform.

Nothing memorable

I've listened to this book right after John Warrillow's "The Art of Selling Your Business". Didn't hear any new important insights and a couple of weeks after finishing the book struggle to remember what was in it.
