Although the price is steep for such a small book, and the book is full of grammatical errors, the information is invaluable. The book seems to have not been proof read prior to publishing. However, the author knows his subject and I have already used some of the information in the book on two business deals. One passage especially, on valuing (discounting) a minority partnership interest saved my organization several million dollars. They had planned to pay "pro rata" to buy a minority stake in a company. I was able to demonstrate why that was not a good idea because of the way the partnership was structured. They are now successfully negotiating at a discounted price. I highly recommend this book and agree with another review which states that you can find lengthier books on business valuation, but this one cuts right to the main points. In fact I bought three other books on valuation, one is over 1,000 pages but "Unlocking the Value of Your Business" is the book I find myself referencing everyday. Maybe that is why I could not find a used copy at a cheaper price, everyone holds on to their book!

reliable guide

This is one of the best business "how-to" books I've ever purchased. I was concerned about the 1999 copyright, wondering if there is newer material available. However, our accounting firm, which is one the "big five" nationally, assured me that these are the tried-and-true formulas. In fact, they confessed that they frequently use this same book. There are some "valuation experts" who sell more complicated methods than the ones in this book, and their arguments for them sound convincing, but the formulas in this book seem to produce the very same results with a lot less work, plus these traditional methods have more historic support, so your argument for a certain value carries more weight. The instructions are very clear. I heartily recommend this book.

great book

This book is right to the point. In my work as a corporate banker, I am constantly reviewing valuation reports, so I know which parts are fluff and which parts are important. This book gives you everything that's important and only what's important. Other books on this subject will have you chasing down arcane aspects of valuation, on the hope it will contribute something to the bottom line, which is almost never the case. Besides, we usually disregard arguments for additional value that are based on more complex theories because if you have to try THAT hard to show value is present, then it probably isn't! Stick with this book and you won't go wrong.

By far, the best book I've found on the subject.

This is a great book. There are a lot of books on this subject, but the others I've seen don't fill the bill. I don't have a lot of time to waste with books that are poorly organized and written, even if the author is a real authority. "Unlocking the Value of Your Business" is not only authoritative and complete, it's easy to use and understand. I wish more books were written this well. The author certainly has a flair for conveying information effectively and efficiently.

great book; makes tough subject easy to understand

If you think you might ever sell your ownership in a business, this book is the best one around to learn how to increase its value, to calculate the value in any number of ways, and to negotiate the deal. Very highly recommended. With a very easy to read layout - not the onerous technical tome I expected - but it's got all the instructions you or your accountants could need. It has a great index, and a very helpful glossary that separately explains all relevant financial concepts that are referred to in the book. Plus, its a lot less expensive than other books on this subject that aren't as good.
