Investigative reporter, Herb Greenberg, referred to as "the bible of forensic accounting," has served novices and professionals alike as they dissect the labyrinths of information that are today's financial statements. Since its publication, "Quality of Earnings" has taught investors how to read between the lines of corporate financial reports and spot the red flags before the market does. O'Glove instructs the reader in how to unmask inflated earnings, and how to recognize the difference between a corporation's shareholders books, and the IRS reported tax earnings. Intended as a practical guide for investors at every level, "Quality of Earnings" has stood the test of time with its meaningful advice and sharp insight into the complex world of corporate reporting.
