More About the Author

After graduating from the University of Illinois with a degree in mechanical engineering, I began my career as a civilian working on various R&D projects for the Navy. Eventually, I became bored with the job because my role involved very little hands-on work. I then left that job to pursue a doctoral degree in Finance at Indiana University. After completing the program, I taught at the University of Wyoming for a few years and then moved on to Washington and Lee University (W&L). W&L is the perfect school for me because it attracts extremely high quality students and it maintains very strong ties to the top of the investment world.

I first started thinking about writing book(s) on stock valuation several years ago, when I realized that most books either were unnecessarily complex and impractical or were lacking in their development of valuation fundamentals. I then undertook a study of how great asset managers approach the valuation process. One result of that study was that I developed a much greater appreciation for the amount of work that goes into properly valuing stocks. Another result was that I was able to write a book that I think fills a much-needed gap in the investments literature. I am currently working on a second book that is geared toward anyone who is saving for retirement. In that book, I address various widespread myths about investing and seek to give individuals the basic knowledge they need to best prepare for investments.

Format: Paperback
I read this book as a sophomore chemical-engineering major who was very interested in getting a job in investment banking. It helped immensely with my super day at a bulge bracket firm. It helps non-finance majors to get up to speed with the finance industry and be extremely prepared to perform well in the interview process. It is very concise, clear, and relevant. Great book!
