Modeling Structured Finance Cash Flows has attracted a nice audience by teaching the process of structure finance on Wall Street to those who need to learn the craft. Reverse Engineering Deals on Wall Street with Microsoft Excel looks at the problem through a new window - namely, how do you reverse engineer deal terms in a competitor's deal sheet or prospectus so you can understand or do similar deals yourself. The process of reverse engineering is an essential Wall Street business practice, which Allman demystifies using Microsoft Excel as a calculation worksheet. While Modeling Structured Finance Cash Flows showed the reader how to structure a deal from scratch, Reverse Engineers goes from deal sheet or prospectus and walks a user through the process of reverse engineering a deal. It is done step by step with textual excerpts from the prospectus and how that directly transfers to a model. The book would be done with the same detailed and rich instruction as Allman's first book, including Model Builder-type exercises, and working models for any reversed deals.
