I note that the book was published in 1999 Since then, lot of new thinking has gone into the subject the world over. The book needs to be updated considering the latest developments based on experience of investors, Bankers and other lending financial institutions. If the new edition of the book is in the offing, these new developments may be incorporated in the analysis of financial statements and other subjects dealt in the book. The Book is very useful for me, a banking consultant and I highly regard the author of the book for having made the enormous task of Financial statement analysis very easy and purposeful. I am financial consultant from Bangalore, India.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
