    "To short and focused on authors own needs"

    This program is to short and the value of the information is limited. The author offers a short crash course on how to read financial statements but the conclusions and advice is to focused on the authors own needs and prejudices. One troublesome conclusion is that companies with large R&D expences has lost the edge and has obsolete products.

    "shocking"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    i almost don't know where to start ...im honestly amazed this got passed the recording room floor. It teaches so little of what it promises and as such is in my view to be of little use to the reader


    Would you ever listen to anything by Deaver Brown again?

    probably not


    Any additional comments?

    its not something i delight in writing such a critical review but someone has to !
