Despite their skills and extensive training, many analysts fail to recognize the basics of good accounting and its deployment in valuation. By focusing on abstract concepts such as measurement basis, exit values, and entity concepts, they miss out on the benfits of a practical approach to valuation. While modern finance has advanced important concepts, including diversification and risk measurement, effective and efficient accounting merges these tools with fundamental analysis to divine a true account of value. Launching an innovative examination of equity valuation as a matter.

A great read - i mean as great as an accounting book possibly an be… the key message is that good accounting should attempt to report only facts to shareholders/investors and keep away from speculation.
A good investor on the other hand should clearly separate the facts from speculation in their analysis before investing in a company. The approach described in the book for this is simple yet powerful.
Lastly, the book focuses on fundamental analysis for investment and cautions against fair value accounting
