Very much a book for the entrepreneur, this is a well structured book that takes you through all the steps that need considered for VC funding. It also helps founders understand the VC perspective, allowing them to know not only what may happen but the reasons behind it. The usual 'Dummies' style gimmicks don't really add that much, but they aren't obtrusive enough to detract either.

Note that, like most books in this area, it is very US focussed. It is still perhaps the most useful book I've see

The book I read to research this post was Venture Capital For Dummies by Nicole Granagna which is an excellent book which I read at

The idea behind venture capital is someone invests in the company in exchange for a portion of the business and the company can grow quickly as a result and then be sold at a profit or go public on the stockexcha

I ended up glancing most of the major topics. I was looking for some samples on cap table and legal advice. But I learnt a lot about convertible debt which is explained pretty good.
