Critic Reviews

"By resisting both the popular tendency to use gimmicks that oversimplify securities analysis and the academic tendency to use jargon that obfuscates common sense, Pat Dorsey has written a substantial and useful book. His methodology is sound, his examples clear, and his approach timeless." (Christopher C. Davis Portfolio Manager and Chairman, Davis Advisors)
