Nice and easy to read high level overview on startup valuations. There are certain things that a practitioner (like me) sometimes takes from granted but when read o described by someone else in such a simple way (as in this book) provide a different perspective or brings more clarity to concepts. Enjoyed the book.

Excellent 2 hour guide to understanding investors of start ups

Crisp and easily understood summary of how investors value and consider investing in early stage companies with concrete examples of valuation approaches.

Good as a simple introduction to the topic for those who are new to the topic, and struggle with the maths (all equations are in extra big type!) Aimed at a basic level, it is inevitable incomplete, missing some alternative methods some details nuances.

Very basic

This is a very basic guide aimed at someone with no financial background (much of the book spent covering extremely basic financial terminology, concepts and calculations).

Good sum of information.

The format could be better, as you cannot zoom in on an iPad and the text was small.

Still worth the read.

Does what it needs to

It's concise and useful, a short yet comprehensive and useful quick reference for the experienced or starting point for the inexperienced.

Confidence builder

Surely a book to provide basic understanding of what to do with valuation. Will recommend it to non finance startup owners and managers.

Not much useful at very early stage, but definitely at 2nd investment stage or series A probably

Good one for beginners

Short and easy to follow. It is a good book for beginners who have little idea about startup company valuation.
