Publisher's Summary

One of Silicon Valley's most successful angel investors shares his rules for investing in start-ups.
There are two ways to make money in start-ups: create something valuable - or invest in the people that are creating valuable things.
Over the past 25 years, Jason Calacanis has made a fortune investing in creators, spotting and helping build and fund a number of successful technology start-ups - investments that have earned him tens of millions of dollars. Now, in this enlightening guide that is sure to become the bible for 21st century investors, Calacanis takes potential angels step by step through his proven method of creating massive wealth: start-ups.
As Calacanis makes clear, you can get rich - even if you came from humble beginnings (his dad was a bartender, his mom a nurse), didn't go to the right schools, and weren't a top student. The trick is learning how angel investors think. Calacanis takes you inside the minds of these successful moneymen, helping you understand how they prioritize and make the decisions that have resulted in phenomenal profits. He guides you step by step through the process, revealing how leading investors evaluate new ventures, calculating the risks and rewards, and explains how the best start-ups leverage relationships with angel investors for the best results.
Whether you're an aspiring investor or a budding entrepreneur, Angel will inspire and educate you on all the ins of outs. Buckle up for a wild ride into the world of angel investing!
This audiobook edition of Angel includes exclusive bonus one-on-one interviews with Jason Calacanis and professional angel investors. Featured are Founders Fund partner Cyan Banister, multiple start-up investor Gil Penchina, founding partner at XG Ventures Andrea Zurek, and serial entrepreneur and start-up mentor Ed Roman.

Must read for anyone considering startup investing

This is without doubt the best book ever written on angel investing. I wish it had been available when I first started - it would have saved me a great deal of money and helped pick better winners.

Jason has a compelling laconic style which comes across really well since he reads the book himself. You can hear every fibre of his combative, difficult and yet deeply human style in his intonation.

Great too that the audiobook has extra interview chapters giving subtly different perspectives to Jason's.

I'm now on my second listen taking notes. I can't praise this book highly enough!
