Despite the passage of Sarbanes-Oxley, navigating through a company's financial statements can still be a tricky proposition. The EDGAR Online Guide to Decoding Financial Statements covers not only how to find the red flags but also how to find the signs of underlying financial strength. It is absolutely critical to have the necessary tools for effective analysis. Clear and accessible, written in an easily readable, step-by-step style that hits every key element, this book gives you those tools. It will not be long before you can easily maneuver through financial statements. There has not been a relevant financial statement analysis book for the average investor since early 2001 and investing has changed markedly since then.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Edgar Online Guide to Decoding Financial Statements: Tips, Tools, and Techniques for Becoming a Savvy Investor?
Okay Book, Not Really Filling ... Feb 9, 2006
I bought the book after reading the other 5 star reviews.
The author describes various items about financial statements. What's really missing is good comprehensive test cases - where he can walk us through applying what was being explained. It was way too much money for what is being offered. I learned much more from MorningStar Classic "The five rules of successful stock investing" for a fraction of price.
Required reading for anyone investing in the stock market!!! Apr 20, 2004
Decoding Financial Statements has a rare combination of wisdom, pertinent, interesting, real world examples, and tips/tricks that are not normally available to the retail investor. Any analyst, portfolio manager and individual investor will learn about a tremendous wealth of current and historical case study examples that illustrate how financial information (reports and press releases) drive stock market prices and valuations.
The big bonus is that this book is NOT written by a CPA, but has a humorous, tongue-in-cheek tone. This makes it entertaining and informative, regardless of your level of knowledge or interest in financial statements, per se.
Perfect Reference Guide Apr 10, 2004
I am a corporate securities attorney in Los Angeles and a former CPA. I found this book to be the perfect guide for any business attorney, accountant or anyone involved in running a public company. The book is easy to read and understand and is well organized as a go to reference guide.
