Format: Paperback
Decoding Financial Statements has a rare combination of wisdom, pertinent, interesting, real world examples, and tips/tricks that are not normally available to the retail investor. Any analyst, portfolio manager and individual investor will learn about a tremendous wealth of current and historical case study examples that illustrate how financial information (reports and press releases) drive stock market prices and valuations.
The big bonus is that this book is NOT written by a CPA, but has a humorous, tongue-in-cheek tone. This makes it entertaining and informative, regardless of your level of knowledge or interest in financial statements, per se.

I am a corporate securities attorney in Los Angeles and a former CPA. I found this book to be the perfect guide for any business attorney, accountant or anyone involved in running a public company. The book is easy to read and understand and is well organized as a go to reference guide.

I bought the book after reading the other 5 star reviews.

The author describes various items about financial statements. What's really missing is good comprehensive test cases - where he can walk us through applying what was being explained.
It was way too much money for what is being offered. I learned much more from MorningStar Classic "The five rules of successful stock investing" for a fraction of price.

Format: Paperback
'Decoding' obviously targets the unwashed individual investor, but doesn't deal with the elephant in the room: Practical ways to get cheap, timely access to the subject information. Ten percent of the ink is used peddling expensive information services that are way beyond practicality for the target reader. Quite a puzzle.

If you are an accounting major, this is a must read! I also believe some professor will actually add to their curriculum requirement as an extra Text Book. Even for the everyday person, it is easy enough to read, and well worth the effort.
