From the Author:

For me, this book represents a labor of love. I spent several years painstakingly researching the case law that we discuss in the book. During that time, I've seen the business appraisal profession, which is still in its infancy, make great strides in the way of business appraisal standards. It will be interesting to see how the primary audience for this book, both business appraisers and end users of business valuation reports, reacts to it. Even if the book doesn't sell well, I had fun writing it with my co-author, Tim Lee, as well as the stellar crew at Mercer Capital, namely, our "boss," Barbara Walters Price, and Matt Washburn. It was a great experience and one I'll never forget.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for A Reviewer's Handbook to Business Valuation

"In business valuation, you don't know what you don't know. Whata business owner and their advisors should know about businessvaluations could fill a book. Fortunately, Paul Hood and Tim Leehave written it! In one place, you'll find the questions to ask,real-word guidance, the best, most understandable, primer onbusiness valuation that you'll find anywhere, and a list ofmistakes that others have made—so that you won't make them.Don't even think of authorizing anyone to start or work with you ona business appraisal—until you've read this book (and I'dinsist all the professionals involved read it too)!"—StephanR. Leimberg, PublisherLeimberg Information Services Inc.

"In 1999, Kumho Tire Co. brought business valuation into therealm of scientific evidence and under the requirements of Daubert.And yet, courts continue to struggle with their 'concerns about thereliability of [the appraiser's report]' (Kohler v Commr., 2006) asmuch today as they did with this 'highly theoretical exercise'(Reynolds v Commr., 1970) forty years ago. Has the businessappraisal profession made any progress? Have we gotten any more'scientific?' Never before has such a complete work been assembledto address the courts' concerns in this regard. A Reviewer'sHandbook to Business Valuation is a powerful new resourceinstructing not only reviewers of business valuation as to how toidentify issues—it is also a preparer's "must-have" checklistfor reviewing their own work." —Nancy J. Fannon, ASA,CPA/ABV, MCBAFannon Valuation Group

"Recalling the trite adage that one cannot learn to ride a bikeby reading a book, Tim Lee successfully conveys complexities of thebusiness valuation profession that can only be offered by someonewith years of experience riding the business appraisal bicycle.Leveraging his career as a tax attorney, Paul Hood then takes Tim'scontribution to the next level and bridges the chasm betweenproviders and users of business appraisal services. Readers won'tfinish the book and then magically be able to ride the businessappraisal bicycle. However, they will better understand thecomplexities and subtleties of the profession. More importantly,readers will be able to use the information to better serve theirlegal, accounting, and financial planning clients."—Chris D.Treharne, ASA, MCBA, BVALGibraltar Business Appraisals, Inc.

"Whether you are a business valuation professional or someonewho works with valuation practitioners (attorneys, estate planners,CPAs), this book is for you. A Reviewer's Handbook to BusinessValuation provides an overview of valuation processes andmethodology and in-depth review of the prevailing businessvaluation standards. What I found most compelling were the chaptersregarding alleged errors, as well as the practical tips andthoughts. As a seasoned valuation practitioner, it gives me a lotto ponder and many things to consider when I perform my nextengagement." —Linda B. Trugman, CPA/ABV, MCBA, ASA,MBATrugman Valuation Associates, Inc.
