This books offers insightful information on how to properly value a company via intrinsic and relative methods. Through concise examples, the author offers clear information and arguments on the differences of valuation of young growth companies, growth companies, mature companies, declining companies, financial service companies, cyclical and commodity companies and companies with intangible assets.

Although valuation methods are (most of the times) standard and straightforward, the book contains useful tips on how to address several of the gaps of these methods to make sure that valuation is accurate and within a reasonable error margin.
