New Daniel Peris' book "The Dividend Imperative: How Dividends Can Narrow the Gap between Main Street and Wall Street" can be viewed as independent volume or as continuation of his previous book "The Strategic Dividend Investor". Although the new book addresses first of all to corporate America (top executives and Boards of Directors) it seems useful for investors (small and institutional). The investors can sharp their point of view on share repurchases and historical evolution of dividends in last half of century in USA based on original author's research. New arguments how to reshape corporate America and make it more shareholders friendly seems interesting although I do not expect that they be implemented overnight.
Overall I think "The Dividend Imperative" can be a good weekend reading.
