"Shareholderreporting versus tax reporting," has its own chapter--as itshould. I would pay 10 times the price of the book just for thischapter, as the concept is unique as far as I've read.
The CFRA... and various other firms use the same simple concepts in this bookto advise their giant money-manager clients about the quality ofvarious public companies' earnings. Money managers pay many thousandsof dollars a year for research based on the principles offered in"Quality of earnings".
A warning: reading this bookcoupled with listening to public companies' management may lead you toshort selling; if you remain "long only", this book maymerely save your rear end.
"Quality of Earnings" is aimedat those who are willing to devote a little time to research on whatthey own; there are no hard & fast rules in here, just businesscommon sense and insight honed through years of work andobservation.
This book and Schilit's "FinancialShenanigans" remain very close to my heart.
