    1. I just read the chapters related to venture capital in the book The Masters of Private Equity and Venture Capital. These are the chapters 7 to 11 built from interviews of:- Garth Saloner, Stanford Professor- Bill Draper, founder of Draper Richards and of Sutter Hill- Richard Kramlich, founder of NEA- Steven Lazarus, founder of ARCH Venture Partners- Pitch Johnson, founder of Asset Management CompanyYou may not know their names but Draper, Kramlich and Johnson are famous "grandfathers" of Silicon [...]


    2. Great book structured as a mix of interviews/memoirs/"lessons learned" by top PE and VC patriarchs who created and shaped both industries. Each of them tells his/her story, explains what makes their firm's investment philosophy different from others etc.I was impressed by chapters telling about private equity approach for African charity and University VC fund backing its technological research. Just shows you how you can apply PE and VC techniques with success outside the industries. So would r [...]


    3. This book gives good insight into the way that private equity and venture capitalists assess the people, companies and technologies they invest in. It was interesting to see the individual investors personalities come across in the ways that they invested and in the types of people they chose to work with. Some wanted short-term profits while a few advised patiently nuturing investments over the longer term. It was also interesting to learn how each got started in the business. Finally, the Appe [...]


    4. Enjoyed the book for the most part. What was different was how the people featured appears to have written the chapters themselves which gave an original feel. I could relate to the private equity part a bit more than the VC part. Yet some of the chapters on Venture Capitalists were very intriguing. Favorite chapter was about the American lady who went to Russia to do VC. She gave some very practical advice which I think applies to lots of frontier and emerging countries. In particular the use o [...]


    5. Immediately my new favorite investment book on private investmentsThe most insightful and well written book I have read on private investment. The Appendices alone are more useful than most other books of a similar nature. I found it to be a much more well written, relevant, and applicable than the similar attempt by "Founders at Work" - I find it a very underutilized resource for Investment Bankers such as myself that want a better understanding of what Investors are considering. It is very ben [...]


    6. +: Good coverage on the history of PE/VC from a first-person perspective. Understand how the important persons in these fields got started and saw patterns and trends before others.-: Generic insights and high-level lessons. Not repeatable information and their position was situational.Worth reading, but won't get you into PE/VC or make you a better Principle/Associate by itself.


    7. Many books have been written about hedge fund legends but this is probably the only book about PE and VC pioneers so far. Moreover, each chapter is written by the legends themselves. Excellent book details the pioneers' investment/management style.


    8. It is always good to read about an industry both from an academic perspective as well as a perspective by those actually in the industry. This book has both in abundance and shows what really happens in private equity. A great book for those interested in that space.


    9. A great oral history of some of the most successful names in the business. It's an enjoyable read and also manages to provide some interesting best practices, though most you would arrive at through common sense.


    10. Interesting book. Some good lessons, but nothing earth-shattering. Never hurts to read anything about the industry.


    11. It makes finance and business interesting for any reader. It really humanizes what is thought to be a very elitist group. Great writing!



    12. Absolute must read for people working in PE and Venture capital. The book is full of classic PE and VC conceptions and wisdoms proven by experience of industry veterans.
