This is a review for chapters 1-7 of the book.

Determining Value starts out by emphasizing that the Dividend Discount Model is the only fundamental method for valuing equities and all other valuation methods must boil down to it. This sets a clear framework for the rest of the book to build from. Unfortunately, it fails to provide much of the practical information needed to use the dividend discount model.

It does have some good explanations of practically useful financial skills like reading accounting statements, but better explanations can be found elsewhere.
