Great for understanding & interpreting financial statements
This book teaches anyone (from owners, to managers, to employees, to customers, to lenders, to suppliers, and to attorneys) how to obtain answers from financial statements by asking the right questions. This book is not filled with esoteric symbols and mathematical babbles, but with clear diagrams and down to earth explanations of the applications of each part of the financial statements. The author has done an excellent job on making this seemingly confusing subject very easy to understand and useful to those who needs to make decisions from it.
Good Things Come In Small Packages
The best book of its type: covers key points in a direct and effective way. If you need to refresh understanding of financial statements, or learn the basic in a concise format you will be pleased with this book. As a finance professor and practioner (CFA) I have recommended Bandler to numerous students and associates.
As an primer, excellent
This is an excellent little book. For those who are not financial types, but need to have a basic ability for work or personal investing, this is the perfect start. The chapter explaining cash-flow statements is particularly good.
I would use this as (1) a launching-point to other, more in-depth books on finance or (2) a review of the basiscs, when you don't want to get bogged down by the minutia, but do need to understand.
The auther has an excellent sense for what is important in this subject, how to explain it in words, and how to illustrate it.
