Charles Rotblut: I was excited when Howard Schilit published a new edition of this book last April. Schilit goes into detail about how companies twist, bend and even break accounting rules to cover up bad news and make their fiscal status seem better than it really is. The latest edition adds new fraudulent techniques, including how companies can misrepresent cash flow.

Charles Rotblut: William O’Neil starts his new book with 100 charts to visually explain how he applies technical analysis. The remainder of the book builds on the content he has previously published and the CAN SLIM system he is known for. (AAII has three screens based on O’Neil’s systems: CAN SLIM, CAN Slim Revised 3rd Edition and IBD Stable 70.)
Author: Benjamin Graham
ISBN: 9780071448208 / 0071448209
©2005 |3rd Edition | 770 pages | Hardback
Pub Date: DEC-04
Price: US$ 65.00
Charles Rotblut: Benjamin Graham and David Dodd provide a thorough discussion of how to analyze a company, from both a debt and an equity perspective. The language is dated, as the book was first published in 1934, but the lessons and the warnings remain very relevant more than 75 years later. I will caution you, however, that at over 700 pages, this is not light reading.
