One of Silicon Valley's most successful angel investors shares his rules for investing in startups.

There are two ways to make money in startups: create something valuable-or invest in the people that are creating valuable things.

Over the past twenty-five years, Jason Calacanis has made a fortune investing in creators, spotting and helping build and fund a number of successful technology startups-investments that have earned him tens of millions of dollars. Now, in this enlightening guide that is sure to become the bible for twenty-first century investors, Calacanis takes potential angels step-by-step through his proven method of creating massive wealth: startups.

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 startups 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!

"there is something refreshing and clarifying about Mr. Calacanis's frankness regarding his tech-fueled riches." -- Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times
"It's easy to snigger at the swagger, but Calacanis has reason to preen. He hasn't merely survived the bust; he's thrived in it. The qualities that made him annoying to his New York colleagues during the boom-his abrasive demeanor, his hucksterism, his incessant networking-serve him well in the postbubble economy." -- Wired
"And that's the thing about Calacanis. Only a sucker would bet against him." -- Fast Company
"The sort of person who is frequently described as a character out of a movie." -- The New Yorker
"Sequoia Capital has funneled millions of dollars to scores of well-connected entrepreneurs, academics, and other people known as scouts. . . .Mr. Calacanis was one of the earliest scouts and ran an online news startup called, in which Sequoia had invested." -- The Wall Street Journal
"Jason would never stab you in the back. He might stab you in the face, though." -- Douglas Rushkoff
"Arguably the world's greatest angel investor." -- The Twenty Minute VC
