From the Back Cover:

Praise for Mergers and Acquisitions Basics:

"Frankel has written a book for both those new and old to the M&As game. It is an essential primer for those who wish to explore strategic transactions as a business option for growth or strategic change."
—Sam M. Farraj Senior Director, Strategy and Business Development, MCI

"M&As is a wildly complex topic. Frankel makes it understandable by focusing on the key building blocks of a deal, such as auctions, due diligence, valuation, and the closing. He takes readers to the heart of the topic at once and does not waste their time with arcane topics best left to specialists. An excellent book for readers who need a functional understanding of M&As!"
—Steven M. Bragg CFO, Premier Data Services
