The Greenblatt book we keep raving about is "You Can Be a Stock Market Genius". If you're interested in spinoffs and other market inefficiencies, it's the best discussion I've seen. I should note, however, that it focuses on where to look and what to look for, and less on valuation. That's not to say it doesn't talk to value, it's just that he doesn't run through a discounted cash flow model or anything like that. In addition, the book is loaded with humor, bits of wisdom (financial and otherwise), and an investment strategy that I believe could truly be all you'd ever need. I've read a fair number of books about investing and this one is my absolute favorite.

I'll try to look at Idearc soon. I can't promise I'll get to it, and if I do, I can't promise it'll be helpful, but I'll give it shot. Hopefully some smarter folks than I will weigh in and comment as well.

Take care and thanks for your interest (and the free analysis)!

Jim
