Great book for the non-financial manager. The book does a good job in explaining the different valuation models and how to use them. The book doesn't cover financial statements at all and could benefit from a brief explanation of what they are and their role in understanding how a company operates and how financing decisions can impact a company. I particularly liked the chapter on value drivers and its discussion of intellectual capital, since this usually is not covered in your standard company analysis. Although you will not acquire all the skills of a financial analyst after reading this book, it does provide an excellent overview of the techniques used to value a company without getting too technical.
