   Peter's Review of Warren Buffett Financial Statments
An excellent explanation and investor of line items for the three basic financial statements for valuing a business. They are used in conjunction with the rest of the consolidated financial statements. Balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement were also used as a model.

   A useful pocket guide which requires a further study elsewhere to ...
However, this book requires further study, preferably by university students, to get to the full meaning of financial analysis. Sir Richard said: “This is a good starting point.

   A must read for investors
I can assure you that you won't find a single nit in James Frey's book. It's a book with no fluff, no filler and all business.

   A Fun Book for Serious Investors
The book was purchased by me about five years ago. The book is a good introduction to the French language. On the second read, I was humiliated to discover that there was a lot of useful information I had missed on my first read. If you are looking for a low risk money making investment methodology then this book is for you.

   Disappointing and embarrassing
This book is dreadful, terrible, terrible. The writing style is very amateurish, it reads as though it was written by a seventh grader. It also offers very little in the way of real information. I haven't read any of the authors other books about Warren Buffett, of which there are many, but after reading this book I am convinced that the authors have no insight whatsoever into Warren Buffett's investing strategy and are just using his name to sell as many books as possible. If you want to read this book, you can get it from the library.

   great primer!
It's great to hear from people who have used it.

   Basic information but very useful for the long run
The information provided in this book helps you make a decision whether the company you want to buy is worth it based on many different parameters. The whole idea is to buy a stock that will out perform and continue to innovate and provide for the long run, rather than the short run, he said. If you want information on how to choose steccols for 2-5 years at the minimum, this is a great piece of literature, and it's definitely not a book for veterans, said Dr. Caramore.

   Looking at Fundamentals, from Buffet’s perspective
Getting into financial statements from one of the greatest investors of our time is a great way to learn what to look for before acquiring stocks in any company, if you're looking to invest long-term. There are some very insigual rules when looking over income statements, balance sheets or cash flow statements. Even with the audible book, it was still easy to follow the kindle edition, where you can highlight and take notes.

   Well Organized - Quality of the Binding is bad
Very Organized. I would suggest to read this first, before we go on to the original Graham and Meredith's version. The difference is that the book starts with Income Statement, whereas G&M started with Balance Sheet. The book deals with the client's problems through the prism of financial statements. Michael Porter's book is "The Whole Nine Yards." This all ties up perfectly with the Matrix suit. Part 4 of the book explains why stocks go up and down, and how they are measured. All right, so long as Dwight is happy. Still not sure how to ease up from going through 100s of statements. Wish there was a way to scan books using technical scanning equipment.

   Great Content but bk pages had manufacturing issues.
If it weren't for the book, I would have given it a 5 star rating. The book is very good, said Ms. O'Neill. Great 4 getting high school or college kids excited about stocks, Witt said. The book itself had manufacturing problems, and the company had to close. See the full photo gallery at: http://www. theknot. com/news/detail/721578. html. This is the 2nd brand new book I ordered from Amazon with this problem.. What is up? Amazon has defended the sale of poorly manufactured books at full price. It's just that the VCR didn't seem to have that many problems.
