I like the way the author brings its reader through baby steps in explaining something difficult in an easy to understand manner. With all the financial engineering in making the figures look pretty, this book has shown me several techniques in unmasking these figures to draw out the (close to) true earnings of a given company. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that is keen to drill a company's profit earnings and als [...]

Still, lots of valuable ideas to pay attention to in each chapter.A few examples: - big spending on advertising time-shifts revenue to the future- gap between accounting and tax reporting as a red flag (eg type of depreciation used)- examples of buildup of inventories leading to trouble- examples of "aggressive" accounting within GAAPThe specific examples leave me wondering if they were cherry-picked.

    • Ted is the master of accounting anomaly identification and his book is as relevant today as the day he and Bob started the Quality of Earnings Report.
