Over the years, I would get countless text messages asking me, “Should I invest in this IPO?”. Friends, family, and colleagues would reach out and ask for my thoughts on the latest hot IPO and I would spend hours trying to explain how it works and why they should invest or not. I would write long emails or text messages, spend hours on the phone, forward finance articles, and do simple valuation calculations on napkins at happy hour.
I tried in earnest to find a book for my friends to read so they could get a feel for what IPOs are and how to go about investing. I found that most finance books are inaccessible, filled with dense finance jargon, often full of theories and outdated examples of irrelevant companies.
Most people just wanted to know two things:
1. What is an IPO and how does it work?
2. Should I invest in the IPO?
I knew the book I wanted to share wasn't out there, so I was inspired to write it. When the Covid-19 pandemic shut everything down, I finally found the time and energy to put pen to paper and write the book that answers those two questions.
