This is a great book. The most valuable lesson I learned from it is to analyze the differences in income reporting to the IRS vs. reporting to shareholders. All companies keep two types of books, one for the IRS and one for shareholders. There are times when an expense can be deducted from a taxable income on the tax return, but it may not be deducted under the GAAP rules. As an investor, I am interested in knowing what a company reports to the IRS and how this number compares to what it reports to shareholders. Since most of the investors do not even bother to check this discrepancy, the dishonest management may deceive investors by hiding certain expenses.

The beginning of the book was rather slow, but later on the author explains in clear language were to look for in the annual reports.

Very good book for anyone wanting to step up their ability to analysis companies' financial statements. It is for the fundamental investor and gives good detail and tips for any future Warren Buffets.
