Default Books to Understand Balance Sheet, P & L and Cash Flow



I have a science/engg background. What book/site should I go through to understand basics of reading Balance Sheets, P & L statements & Cash flow?

I have a good aptitude for math/calculations & understand very basic concepts but nothing beyond that.

These are my suggestions:

Analysis of Financial Statements

by Leopold Bernstein, John J. Wild

https://www.amazon.in/Analysis-Finan...6723761&sr=1-4

Financial Statement Analysis and Security Valuation

by Stephen Penman

https://www.amazon.in/Financial-Stat...0-46b10468ee42

You can get these books cheaper in the used books market.

To start with the basics, I think "The five rules for successful stock investing by Pat Dorsey‎" would be good.

The naming of the book is not correct though, it includes everything one needs to understand as a beginner.

Currently I am reading that but very slow progress due to my time constraint. Also pick one company's annual report of your interest and make your own excel file while you progress through that book.
