Timely Story Brilliantly Told

September 3, 2009
By Chris Burbach (Phoenix, AZ)

I initially began reading Creative Capital to learn more about the origins and history of the venture capital industry and ultimately became enthralled with the incredible life story of General Doriot. His list of accomplishments is staggering to consider in terms of both scope and impact, but his approach to life was what stood out most. The persistence, care and dedication he demonstrated to the students he taught, his country, the country he adopted or the businesses he financed was truly inspiring. Spencer Ante does a brilliant job of telling his story and putting it into the historical context of the development of the venture capital industry.

Highly recommended to anyone with an interest in American history and is a must read for any student or practitioner of finance.
