Whatever the flaws of Getting Back to Business, irrelevance to portfolio management is not one of them. The book provides a critical history of the current paradigm, and then proposes an alternative approach, written from the perspective of an active practitioner overseeing one of the largest dividend complexes in the country.

So I had to laugh when a leading journal in the field of investment management declined to review the book, writing to my publicist, “Not that kind of journal.”

Alas, this is consistent with how I expected the book to be received by the academic community, as discussed in the post from July 21.
