Ok, really simple question here. Is book value, or to be more descriptive, liquidation value, determined by

{current assets - total liabilities}, or
{total assets - total liabilities}?

I'm trying to apply Grahm's Number and I'm not sure how to figure out book value.

Also, I saw a web site that said P/S is just market cap divided by total sales. Then another said that P/S is equal to P/E x net profit margin. Are these both the same thing?

And finally, what is earnings yield? Is it earnings / Stock Price?

There's a glossary in the Fool School here:

You have earnings yield correct...also it's the reciprocal of P/E ratio.
