Summary:

Brought to you by Penguin.

An inside account of the multi-billion pound world of private equity and a masterclass on the art of deal-making.

The Dealmaker is a frank and honest account of how a severely dyslexic child who struggled at school went on to graduate from Oxford and become a serial entrepreneur.

It describes Guy Hand's career in private equity, first at Nomura and then as head of his own company, Terra Firma. It looks in detail at the huge deals that Terra Firma has done over the years, involving everything from cinema chains and pubs to waste management, aircraft leasing and green energy. And it offers a brutally honest appraisal of the deal that almost bankrupted him - the acquisition of multinational music recording and publishing company EMI in 2007, just as a global financial crash loomed on the horizon. Above all, it takes the reader inside the previously very secretive world of private equity, explaining how this multi-billion pound sector operates and providing pen-portraits of some of the larger-than-life figures who people it.

Both insightful and page-turning, it will prove inspirational and essential reading for all those concerned with or interested in the world of investment.
