Praise for Private Equity

"Private Equity: History, Governance, and Operations is an invaluable guide to understanding the world of private equity investing. Harry Cendrowski and his colleagues have drawn on their extensive experience and expertise to produce a book that is remarkably comprehensive and authoritative." —Robert Larson, Chairman, Lazard Real Estate Partners LLC and Larson Realty Group Managing Director, Lazard Alternative Investments

"Private Equity: History, Governance, and Operations is an essential text for any business/finance professional's library. Applicable to both seasoned private equity gurus and students of the industry, its in-depth analysis of 'Best Practices' is well researched and clearly written." —William Campbell, Managing Director, W.Y. Campbell & Company

"This is an interesting and very well-written book. It not only clearly describes the history and techniques of private equity investing, it also provides a thorough examination of the rarely appreciated relationships among internal control design and operation, corporate governance and sound investment decision-making and management. It is an important contribution to the literature of finance." —Barry Epstein, PhD, CPA, Partner, Russell Novak & Company, LLP, and author of Wiley GAAP 2008, The Handbook of Accounting and Auditing, and Wiley IFRS 2008

"Harry Cendrowski really hits a homerun with his newest book about the private equity (PE) industry. A definitive, authoritative text on the subject, it answered all my questions, plus some, and gave me a complete frame of reference where I now feel well informed on PE. I would recommend this book to anyone connected to the PE industry, business advisors, academics, and business owners." —Parnell Black, MBA, CPA, CVA, Chief Executive Officer, National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA)

"The timing could not be better to learn more about the current best practices and governance in the world of private equity. What was once an exclusive asset class reserved for the largest, most sophisticated investors has now become a mainstream alternative investment option for investors of all sizes. Still, many investors do not fully understand how the business works. Private Equity: History, Governance, and Operations endows its readers with an A-to-Z education on this emerging asset class, irrespective of their previous experiences." —Maribeth S. Rahe, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fort Washington Investment Advisors, Inc. & Fort Washington Capital Partners

"As a private equity practitioner in the financial services space, I found this book to be a comprehensive-and comprehendible-resource covering all relevant aspects of the business of private equity. This book provides valuable 'how-to's' for improving the likelihood of having successful portfolio companies, with successful exits. Furthermore, both veteran and prospective PE investors now have a resource available to help them screen PE opportunities that best fit with their risk and return objectives." —Scott B. McCallum, Principal, Resource Financial Institutions Group, Inc.

"For years, private equity has been a misunderstood asset class. Harry Cendrowski's book defines private equity in clear, concise terms.

Comments to eBook Private Equity: History, Governance, and Operations (Wiley Finance)
Legionstatic
This book served as a great reference guide for myself, a student soon entering the PE/ VC industry. The book gives a good sense of the theories used behind the modeling in both industries, as well as a unique and comprehensive perspective on the history of both industries. To really get a good grasp of the material; however, I think it is necessary to work through several real world cases. Overall, this book is great as an intro to PE or VC.
Fog
This book is great for anybody taking an "intro to private equity class" or just wanting to learn more about private equity in general. There is an extensive history of private equity investment along with many diagrams that are easy to follow. It offers a good overview of the industry, also taking into account recent events in the financial sector. Overall, it's a great book for anybody looking to get started in PE and I would highly recommend it.
Winenama
The first 150 pages of this book are most likely the best. Great history of PE investment with many graphs of fund returns and investment patters. Some of the later chapters are a bit disjointed, and two offer up a lot of legalese, but overall, a very good book for the PE novice.
Redfury
This is a must read for any student of Finance who wants to learn about the history, processes, trends, and valuation of the Venture Capital/Private Equity industry; All in a concise yet comprehensive layout, with easy to read charts and diagrams.
Kazijora
This is an ideal text for those entering the private equity area. Offers a great overview of the industry and includes good graphs and supplemental materials to summarize key information. Highly recommended.
Nuadora
While the authors succeeded in writing the first book on the private equity profession, the book lacks the theoretical depth or practical experience to make it a truly finance text book that John Wiley & Sons is renown for. I found books written on private equity investment(e.g. Beyond the J Curve by Thomas Meyer or Handbook of Alternative Assets by Mark Anson) are better references for me about the private equity industry.
