I thought this book was informative and was a good overview of much of the material on valuation, due diligence, and behavioural finance contained within the CFA curriculum. The author's own experiences surely added more depth to the material.

I would suggest that future editions contain a disc or web access to go into more detail on sections (autocorrelation in residuals, time series, etc..) and provide non analysts with the opportunity to run through exercises.

Or consider exercises on one long valuation throughout the book running from top down, bottom up selection of sector and company. A fictional interview with management, running a history of numbers, forecast earnings..come up with various price multiples..and finally making a recommendation.

I think that would give readers a more interactive experience and help to use those many Excel tricks.

On the whole, I extracted some value from this book.

A practical book that covers a lot of ground. A lot of emphasis is put on communication. Overall good.

This guide provides you many broad categories you need to think about on an equity research job, such as time management and interview skills with companies. However, just reading this book will not make you good at doing those things. It is not the kind of "knowledge books" filled with detail, examples and historical contexts. Instead, it is more like a step-by-step guide. Overall, it is a good book to be kept on the desk for reference.

The title is actually a very humble description of what one can get from the book. I believe it is esssential for anyone into financial analysis professions. It covers from how to relate with management of covered companies to valuation methods to excel tips.
