       ventured, nothing gained." 
520    An eye-opening account of some of the successful deals and
       spectacular failures in the career of a successful private
       equity investor.  Bill Ferris has led the field in 
       Australian venture capital and private equity for more 
       than 40 years. He has seen his share of successful floats,
       fly-by night wonders, and companies gone wrong. Here he 
       takes readers into the world of private equity, with a 
       wealth of stories on the successes and failures, deals 
       that went right and deals that went wrong. There are 
       priceless lessons for would-be investors and entrepreneurs
       in the insights the author can offer-how to raise funds, 
       picking the right people, start-ups versus buyouts, IPO's 
       and trade sales, all lessons drawn from personal 
       experience. Along with numerous case studies of successful
       and not so successful ventures, Bill Ferris gives a 
       detailed analysis of what makes a successful PE team, 
       looks into the future of private equity, and summarizes 
       the history of the industry from the 1970s.
