To short and focused on authors own needs

This program is to short and the value of the information is limited. The author offers a short crash course on how to read financial statements but the conclusions and advice is to focused on the authors own needs and prejudices. One troublesome conclusion is that companies with large R&D expences has lost the edge and has obsolete products.
