Has anyone else read this book? Just received my copy this week and I'm already halfway through it. I think it is a fantastic read and one for every investor's library.


The book focuses on the softer side of analysis which is deciphering CEO letters and management communication. Some notes:


- "Executive communication is the window into the culture, value, operations and prospects of the business"


- A sustainable business model is based on 7 primary systems: Accountability, Strategy, Vision, Leadership, Candor, Relationship and Capital Stewardship


- A strong system of accountability supports the execution of strategy. No accountability, leads to squandering of investors capital.


- Strong leadership is required to support a corporate vision. Without strong leadership, a company is likely to have a diffuse and unoriginal vision that can waste shareholder equity.


- Candor ensures that stakeholder relationships are built on trust. Without Candor, trust cannot grow or flourish.


- Capital Stewardship is the hub of the model, it reveals whether managements actions are based on attitudes of being entrusted with or entitled to investor capital.
