too basic

The author explains right up front that this is not a book for investors. He spends an inordinate amount of time explaining what the market cap is. I cannot help but give this the analogy, you are to make dynamite, however, safety issues will be skipped and detailed instructions will not be given. That said, I will study what I can about the author & his other works, he does show you where the path begins.

trying too hard

really tried to give this book a chance, but it tries to be a method for "smart people" so they can feel like they have their own version of Joel Greenblatt's magic formula.

Great book for any investor!

Easy to understand why value investing works. I enjoyed the stories about Warren Buffet, Carl Icon, and Dan Loeb. Toby Carlisle is da man!

Would recommend

This was an excellent book which describes the basic principles of valuing a company.. I have been on Toby's website multiple times but never really knew how to use the screeners.. now I know..
I would recommend for anyone looking to gain some knowledge on the acquirers multiple number.. how its calculated and how to use it..

It's not too long either.. very manageable
