About the Author
Dutch investor Jeroen Bos has lived in England since 1978. He has a diploma in Economics from Sussex University and has worked his entire career in the financial services industry, mainly in the City of London. He worked for many years at Panmure Gordon & Co, the stockbroker, and it was here that his interest in value investing developed. This process accelerated after the October 1987 stock market crash, during which time he took inspiration from The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. At the end of 2003 Jeroen joined Church House Investment Management to manage CH Deep Value (Bahamas), which in March 2012 became the CH Deep Value Investments Fund. He lives in Sussex, is married and has three sons.

Overall, the book's contents are quite good. I recommend the reader have a solid general understanding of value investing and investing terminology before reading, but this isn't totally necessary. With a good foundation of knowledge in accounting and finance, the book is a quick read. I got through it in an evening. The author covers all the material as promised on the rear cover, so I give it five stars for quality writing and for covering all topics as promised. Don't expect a textbook on value investing, instead it reads more as a series of essays on previous trades, their rationales, and their outcomes. The only way it could be improved upon is to go into greater detail about the mechanics of screening deep value companies and tools to do so.
As to the book itself, the binding, editing, and cover design are spot-on. The only demerit is the quality of ink used for the type and certain aspects of the typography. Instead of using a deep, strong ink, the publisher seems to have used some sort of rinky-dink printing process that reminds me of a dot-matrix printer. The type is composed of many small dots, which ruins the look of the characters, making their fine lines appear ragged. Also, the color is too light, and it makes the words hard to read. Finally the typography looks amateurish, especially the line spacing and the tables of balance sheets.
Content: Five stars, well done, could've used a bit more meat on the bone
Construction: Four stars, stumbled on the typography and ink
Value: Overpriced due to inferior typography and cheap-o printing. Also, the content of the book is lean for the price. I feel it's more fairly valued at about half the current offered price, or it needs to be beefed up with more detail.
