Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a regular reader of your magazine, and I am writing in regards to the announcement you made to include contributions for your upcoming article: ‘The book that influenced me most’.
The name of the book that I would like to share is ‘Financial Shenanigans’, written by Howard. M. Schilit . It mainly focuses on the ways of detecting accounting gimmicks and fraud in financial reports. It is one of the best-sellers and it covers real incidents from over the past 25 years.
As I am a stock market investor, I frequently come across a lot of fraudulences which persuade people to invest in potentially hopeless areas. After reading this book, I became more vigilant in investing and now I am able to give advices to my colleagues who are really interested in investing.
I think the book would give it readers the necessary tools to understand more about the tricks companies use to exaggerate their revenue and earnings. Overall, a person who is really interested in investing in the market should read the book at least once in his life.
I look forward that you would consider including this in the forthcoming article.
