This book is essentially an abridged version of the other works from the author. I bet first time student of valuation or finance would not be able to comprehend the various models and formulas presented within as the book is TOO concise, omitted many related but crucial explanation or formulas. The presentation and organization are somewhat wanting. I stumbled upon roadblocks when reading this book. I don't get what he was trying to say until I reached for his other book, Damodaran on Valuation. The latter is well organized and the theories are better explained.
Therefore, I feel this book is too simplified. Maybe it's for those who had studied his other books prior to this Little Book. But then why should he/she when after having read his other more authoritative manuscript on valuation, he/she would have no need for this "TOO Little" Book. Those reviews here recommending this book to any novice of valuation or finance had in fact did them a disservice.
