It is a sophisticated advert for his business. Not a decent book waste of money

An extended advert for his new website.

I liked the start of the book, but it suddenly ends and becomes an advert for his new venture.

Don't waste your money

This book is very basic, as others have said. If you are new to the topic of business buying/M&A, this is not the book for you - M&A is a complex subject and should not be over-simplified as the author has tried to do here.

Basic info followed by a sales pitch for the info

Basic info in the book, real info will be in the mastermind which is where the sale pitch is.

Well explained strategy

The author explained the principles clearly. The step by step guide was straight and to the point. I would recommend people reading/listening to the book also uses the website.

Disappointing

Having been involved in a number of M&A deals, my expectations weren’t high, yet I was still disappointed. I thought perhaps there would be something new to learn about creative financing - given the “without risking your own money” pitch. Or perhaps new sources of deal flow for SME’s on the buy and sell side. There was little or none of that. There were no reviews available prior to my purchase, so I guess I took one for the team. At least it was short.

From the perspective of novice dealmakers, on the other hand, be warned! M&A, as presented here, is oversimplified in many instances. Dealmaking is much more complex than presented here! Do not try this at home. It turns out though, that the book is a prelude to a dealmaking network for novice investors. So, there’s that.

That said, I give the author/narrator kudos for his obvious enthusiasm, energy, and passion for, and previous success in dealmaking.

Some useful info, but just a lot of hype to get you to join his club

Many topics/advise are repeated throughout the book. Doesn’t go into depth about each topic. Very shallow, and mostly a lot of hype. At the end he spends about 15 telling you why you should join his group.
