Review:

In Magic Numbers, investment analyst Peter Temple provides a straightforward primer to calculating and interpreting 33 key investment ratios. The book is organized into five sections that explain market-based ratios (e.g., market capitalization, P/E ratios), income statement ratios (margins, earnings per share), balance sheet rations (price/cash ratio, burn rate), cash flow ratios, and risk and volatility ratios. Each chapter clearly shows the inputs necessary to calculate a particular ratio and explains its relevance in evaluating a company's performance. Recommended for serious investors. --Harry C. Edwards

"A clear and concise manual for any budding investor. It will help avoid many of the pitfalls of investing. Each step is clearly laid out with examples and explanations of both the pros and cons of each ratio. Lesson 34 ought to state 'knowledge and practice equals few mistakes.'" --Markus Rosgen, Chief Asian Strategist, ING Barings Asia
