aptvictoria,

Ideally, managerial practices are suppose to maximize shareholder value. So if the book describes how and what managerial practices can increase shareholder value, thus stock prices, an investor would then understand some things to look for in companies they want to invest. But this is only a limited view of an investment - from an analysis point.

IMHO -In the beginning, an investor would be better off reading something aligned with investment analysis because it represents the larger field and covers more of the variables - not just some specific variable (rules) and why those rules are important.

Once the investor had a good handle on the process of investment analysis - then go into depth on specific variables to fine tune your methodolgy. It will make more sense when reading the management practices becasue you can then tie it into what effect is expected and thus why the increase in "value"
