He shows how to apply the models within these classes by using case studies of actual firms, and also explains the purpose of each model, its pros and cons, the steps involved in applying it, and the types of firms to which it is most suited.

    Too Theoretical

    The book is tailored totally for the academic market, which often ignores the reality on Wall Street. The wirter is a professor and it shows.
