BVR Business Valuation Update: Valuing A Business – Book Review by Harold G. Martin, Jr.

Valuing a Business – The Analysis and Appraisal of Closely Held Companies, 6th Edition

In the BVR Business Valuation Update March 2022 issue, Keiter Valuation and Forensic Services Partner, Harold Martin, Jr., shared his review on the release of his late mentor and colleague, Shannon Pratt’s, book Valuing a Business 6th Edition.

“Many practitioners consider this text to be one of the most comprehensive treatises on the valuation of closely held businesses and is often cited in professional articles, journals, court cases, etc. However, given the evolution of valuation theory and applications, the issuance of new standards by professional organizations, etc., this edition was due for an update.”

Business Valuation Suggested Reading

As an instructor for the AICPA National Business Valuation School for the past 14 years, one of the questions that students often ask me is what textbooks I would recommend for their valuation library. I have always included Valuing a Business on my short list as it presents basic valuation concepts in an easy-to-understand manner for beginners, as well as discussion of more complex issues, including alternative schools of thought, for intermediate to advanced users.” explained Martin.
