One reviewer writes, "The strengths of the Farrell book are the very clear and well organized descriptions of the theories, and then especially the realistic and clear examples that demonstrate how the theory is applied. The coverage appears to be complete, well organized, quite readable, and up-to-date. These strengths undoubtedly reflect the fact that Farrell has a background as an accomplished scholar as well as a seasoned practitioner."
Another reviewer noted, "Chapter 1: This chapter provides an excellent overview of portfolio management. Portfolio management is discussed in a logical and systematic way. The coverage of Chapter 2 is excellent. The material is organized in a systematic fashion and uses standard terminology. The coverage of Chapter 3 is also excellent and well-organized. I would consider this text for adoption. The text presents portfolio management in a logical and systematic way. After the student gets the theory in Chapters 1-4, the rest of the book can show how theory is really useful and applies to real world applications."
"Chapter 9 -Equity Valuation Models-Simplifications and Application - This is perhaps the best chapter I have seen written on common stock valuation in a portfolio management text. It provides a comprehensive description of the major empirical models used in valuing equity securities. Thus, the chapter does a superior job of linking valuation theory with actual practice. The illustrations of the H model, the P/B ROE Valuation model, the q ratio, and free cash flow are all timely, and indicative of the latest thinking in common stock valuation models. At the same time, the example should be quite understandable by the typical student, " another reviewer raves.
A reviewer writes, "Chapter 10: Disciplined Stock Selection: Rating: 10. This is a very strong chapter. It is logical, rigorous, clearly written, and is essentially a very detailed illustration regarding how one can build a model to assess forecasting ability and then use that to build a portfolio that will exploit that ability most effectively."
"Chapter 13 - International Investing - I would rate this chapter to be a clear 10. As compared to most other texts, this one covers the subject in a very clear and thorough manner. It provides very up-to-date data, penetrating analysis and interpretation of data, and excellent illustrations of practical decision-making applications....this is the best chapter on international investing that I have seen in a textbook," stated a reviewer.
