Undecided (and the spelling mistakes need addressing)
on 12 August 2003
Withholding judgement on whether this is a worthwhile book or not...the spelling mistakes within the first few pages do not give the reader any confidence to take seriously what the rest of the book contains!
The real-world examples always seem to revolve around the fact that the author's outfit of analysts issued warnings related to a company's accounts before some irregularities were announced to the market.
I think following Warren Buffett's advice not to invest in anything you don't understand would help 99.9% of investors avoid investing in companies with questionable accounting.
