Books recommended by Prof. Sanjay Bakshi

Jeff Bezos admires David Shaw and he once told that David is one of the few people I know who has a fully developed left brain and a fully developed right brain. If Bezos had met Prof. Sanjay Bakshi he would have told the same thing. I was extremely lucky to meet the professor yesterday. It was fascinating to see him effortlessly using ideas from multiple disciplines to answer my questions. During the meeting he recommended a lot of books which I am sharing in this post.

  1. Thanks Jana for sharing the list. I m sure your meeting with Professor must hv been v interesting.

  2. Thanks for sharing this great list. I’m going to look into some of them straight away.

    I read Penman’s “Accounting for Value” last summer, and ended up ordering his textbook “Financial Statement Analysis and Security Valuation (5th Edition)”. If you’re serious about understanding financial statements, I recommend the latter. You get the same models, in much more detail and with many examples.

    • Andres,

      Yes professor also mentioned about the book Financial Statement Analysis and Security Valuation (5th Edition)”. I should consider reading that also.
