Entertaining, for those who may be interested in reading about what happens at shareholder meetings without needing to travel to attend one yourself (and as the author also believes, reading transcripts or attending online isn't quite the same thing). I do wish that there is a more updated version of this, to see how meetings have evolved since the 2008 financial crisis.

So informative. Really enjoyed all the goings on at the shareholders meetings.
Worth the read. It could have been very boring, but he was honest in his assessment criteria. Food, Freebies, entertainment.
Informative, enlightening and fun! This book makes me want to attend a shareholder meeting, read more about shareholder activism and do more research into those companies whose stock I hold.
