i love it! for all the varies in valuation method, it emphasis on what you are really keen on to assess for certain organization.

It's one of those book which have lot of substance an very few words. It's for those who already are into investing and needs to advance.

The book was a bit over my head. This is one that would take a lot of study to really benefit the investor.
