Top Customer Reviews
The way material in the book is conveyed is very simplistic and easy to understand. The content starts from the topic that is as easy as reading financial statement to valuation and other complicated topics in financial world.
The author also give examples but not exercises unlike other textbook which is understandable as the book is a guide, not really a textbook, and the book itself is also quite lengthy already.
If you are interested in the book I would recommend that you buy it from the website of the publisher itself. The book cost USD 95 with around USD 7 shipping.
The level of difficulty ranges throughout the text (depending on how far you want to delve into each particular topic) but it is generally quite an easy read, in comparison to texts that are purely technical and often targeted at people who have already got a fair understanding of the topic areas aforemetioned. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in these areas and even those currently working in the field who want a one-stop-shop for general reference.
