    While this book did provide a realistic look into the minds of Angel investors, it was very dry to read and often incredibly pessimistic. I didn't learn anything from this book that I couldn't have picked up from a more interesting business textbook. Some of the information also felt dated, but that could be because I was reading the 2007 edition and I noticed that there is a 2011 edition now. Overall, this was only ok but I think there are some better business books out there that touch on the same subject.

    Interesting book on angel investing, more of a survey of the industry at the time the book was written vs. a guide. I like Brian Cohen's or David Rose's book better. I do really like the review of terms and legal details. Susan does an amazing job at walking through the details of the terms used in angel investing at a deeper level than I've seen in other books. If you want to understand the terms of angel investing better - this is the perfect book for you.
