    "Crisp, well-focused review of the subject of selling a company" Venema has employed a very clever vehicle to organize and explain the complicated process of selling a software company - or in a more general sense, selling any kind of company. I have just completed the sale of a B-to-B media company, and I found his book invaluable to my layman's understanding of the process. As a former Army officer and attorney, Mr. Venema chose to organize his presentation of the sales process around the Army planning and operations models: "There's a lot to be said for the time-tested procedures that the Army uses to make decisions, develop plans, manage operations, and lead soldiers.

He does not fall into the trap of excessive legalize and doubletalk as so often happens in guides like this. He helps you organize your thought process. If you're even considering selling your software company, or any other kind of company for that matter, you will find this book to be extremely helpful to the process.

This book will get you off to a very good start.< Less
