Make sure you check out all the listed things that this book includes. As a 'still a novice' investor with about three years of speculative trading under my belt I have finaly learned, with help from this book, what some of these key earnings ratios are really telling me. The chapter that discusses investment philosophies by Buffet, William O'Niell, Philip Fisher, T. Rowe Price, David Dremen, and Benjamin Graham who co-wrote perhaps the best book on investing (Security Analysis) is very educating. Lots of goodies in this terrific book
