From the Back Cover
"The Aggressive Conservative Investor will never go out of date. Regulation, disclosure, and other things may change, but the general approach and mindset to successful investing are timeless. Read this book and you will learn the rudiments of 'safe and cheap' investing. An essential read for every amateur and professional investor."
—Stan Garstka, Deputy Dean & Professor in the Practice of Faculty & Management, Yale School of Management
"Security analysis toward both better odds and higher long-term payoff: A readable, authoritative guide."
—Professor Bill Baumol, New York University
"In reading this book, one is struck by the simplicity of the ideas and the dependence of the investor on his own understandings of reality as opposed to the myths on the street. The updated version of this 1979 classic incorporates all the modern financial engineering that has occurred as a product of the late 20th century, and the new methodologies refine your abilities to measure risk but don't change the fundamentals of value. The updated version of The Aggressive Conservative Investor is very much a value-added proposition."
—Sam Zell, Chairman, Equity Group Investment LLC
"I concur with those people who regard Marty Whitman as the 'Dean of Value Investing.' This book is a must-read for everyone interested in understanding the art of investing."
—Melvin T. Stith, Dean, Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University
