All about the pitch

The book was very focussed on the pitch - what sections to include, how to present yourself, how to handle questions etc. I’m glad I listened, but would have liked more on the types of deal, how to structure a deal, what makes a good and bad termsheet and similar strategic topics outside of the pitch deck.

Awesome

Absolutely, if the friend had a business or worked in a position in a business where their input is valued and they could contribute to the improvement of the organisation.

Enjoyed this book a lot

Stories were meaningful although the content was a little dated. The speaker had a pleasant voice and kept a good cadence.
