"This book was on the reading list for a Security Analysis class I audited. The professor introduced the book by having us watch a talk that Charlie Munger gave pitching the value of the book. It was a pretty interesting book and gave me much to think about."
"I'm about half-way through and struggling to finish. I like the idea of small, un-noticed companies doing extraordinary things. However, it seems the whole focus is on revenues, global reach and market share. Who cares what any of that is if you're not profitable and earning a high return on capital.

"One of the most incredible stories I have ever read. I read Liar's Poker shortly after moving from the Silicon Valley to New York City in 2005--just about the time story was taking off. The story ends on September 18, 2008--one week after starting at CBS. The events of the financial crisis have frequently been discussed in many of my classes. This book pulled many of ideas and concepts together."
"I just finished "You Can Be a Stock Market Genius". The book was mentioned twice in The Big Short and I thought that I had better read it as well. It was very interesting and a great entry into special situations."
