Editorial Reviews

“John does a masterful job of illuminating the qualities that business buyers look for in a company, and he does it in a thoroughly enjoyable and engaging manner.”—Bo Burlingham, author of Small Giants (from the Foreword)“There is no tooth fairy for selling a business. It takes planning and a real understanding of what works.
