The New Investor Relations book summary


8 Overall

9 Applicability

9 Innovation

5 Style

This comes as close as anything you have been offered so far. Alas, its style and timeliness fall short (it offers clichés couched in academic prose and presents year 2000 regulations as new), but it offers abundant information. This is a helpful and useful run-down, particularly Chapter 10, which covers proxy wars. Non-U.S. companies will also find Chapter 13 very relevant. If you need an IR overview, believes you can satisfactorily start here.

  • how professionals conduct investor relations under normal circumstances and during times of stress.
