One book every startup entrepreneur and venture capitalist should own: Venture Deals

In a guest post on Techcrunch, Mark Suster reviews a new book by Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson called Venture Deals: Be Smarter Than Your Lawyer and Venture Capitalist.  This book exists to minimize the imbalance of information / experience between venture capitalists (who invest for a living and look at hundreds or thousands of deals per year) and entrepreneurs (who have perhaps been through a handfull of financings at best).  Truly the best vc’s are the ones who earn the trust of entrepreneurs as partners, and having an even playing field in terms of information going into a deal is a great way to start a relationship off the right way.  I applaud this book, and this article is an excellent summary of “why it matters”.
