PRAISE for the FIRST EDITION:
"Dr. DePamphilisÃ¢Â€Â™ book is a rare achievementÃ¢Â€Â”a textbook that provides Ã¢Â€Â˜nuts and boltsÃ¢Â€Â™ information for the businessperson with responsibility for doing a deal. I intend to give a copy to every one of my clients as a Ã¢Â€Â˜must readÃ¢Â€Â™ before considering a merger or acquisition. A few pages into Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Restructuring Activities I knew it was obviously written by someone who has Ã¢Â€Â˜been there, done thatÃ¢Â€Â™."
- H. Edward Wesermann, The Edge Group, Edmonton, Canada
