Coming to touch feel emotions. I found the book to be designed from some of the finest quality of Paper. Creases don't easily emerge in the book. The book can be easily hand-held. It has some character to it. It's a specimen of fewer words more quality.
As such the day to day functioning rarely requires finance professionals to delve on what the company stands for or what it stood for and why we are business, what are the assumptions , are the summations changing etc. Economic environment yes, political environment perhaps perhaps, internal official environment oh of course.
This book opened my mind to that unknown but a long time feeling that I am missing something.

The main focus of the articles is the behavioural aspects of decisions with, in our view, rather too little coverage of analytical tools and techniques. Of the remaining articles, three focus on decision making processes and these become rather tedious, focussing more on what can go wrong than what is needed to get them right. There is however one excellent article by Bain - the last in the book - on the negative aspects of complex annual planning processes and how these tend to stop the right decisions being taken at the right time. This should be read by the CEOs and CFOs of those companies whose annual planning cycles dominate business life for months on end; we’ve come across quite a few.
Despite these reservations the book and series is recommended for those who want to keep in touch with academic thinking on particular topics. Each article has an excellent short summary under the ‘Idea in Brief’ heading, which allows the reader easily to focus on issues of particular interest.
Suitable for business and academic life.
