All investors, from beginners to old hands, should gain from the use of this guide, as I have.
From the Introduction by Michael F. Price, president, Franklin Mutual Advisors, Inc.

Benjamin Graham has been called the most important investment thinker of the twentieth century. As a master investor, pioneering stock analyst, and mentor to investment superstars, he has no peer.

The volume you hold in your hands is Graham's timeless guide to interpreting and understanding financial statements. It has long been out of print, but now joins Graham's other masterpieces, The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis, as the three priceless keys to understanding Graham and value investing.

The advice he offers in this book is as useful and prescient today as it was sixty years ago.

And this is the essential function and value of security analysis.

   Balance sheet analysis from a master at his trade
For most part, I found Graham's book very useful. Although there was some disappointment with the income statement explanation, as well as his focus on railroad and utility companies, I found this very helpful. This book is excellent for the beginning investor on a whole. It is a little out of date, but the core information, as well as reading the words of Graham himself, is worth reading. Graham also applies everything he wrote to a financial statement, showing exactly what to do, an invaluable piece of instruction.

You don 't have to find out what the author is saying. Certainly, some of the material does not address modern day conditions, but this book can provide a financial background or refresher on modern day statements from the investor's point of view.

   Benjamin Graham: Interpretation of Financial Statements
The book was received very quickly from the seller. The classic reprint of the 1937 edition. The financial ratios used in this book are only relevant 82 years later.

   Amazing content, but the book was dirty and stained
The book's content is a solid 5 stars. Benjamin Graham is one of the greatest authors of all time, after reading and rereading his 3 books, it is safe to say that he was one of the most brilliant people of all time. Unfortunately, the book had spots and was really dirty in appearance. I bought mine “new ”, but it is obvious that this thing was used and harmed and they did not even bother to clean it.
