It features the highly popular, Discounted Cash Flow technique, which is the edifice of business valuation whilst making investment decisions.

Warren Buffet, the reputed investor was highly impressed by the book and the book features two major principles- the intrinsic value of a business can be taken out of discounted value during the course of its lifetime and a business that can afford to invest it’s earning at a higher rate than the applied discounted rate if it can afford to.
