The First Insider Look Into Sir John's Investing Strategies
Sir John Templeton is “The greatest stock picker of the century.”
“Sir John Templeton's savvy went beyond that of the investment world. A mother asked him what was the best investment advice she could give her son, and he responded 'to tithe.' He encouraged me and others to seek the spiritual truths that are every bit as incontrovertible as the physical laws that impact our universe, and then make a commitment to live by them. He was a giant not only in his 'out of the box' investment acumen, but also for his understandings of the broader issues of life.”
-Foster Friess, Founder/Fund Manager, Friess Associates Inc.
“Sir John Templeton knows well the royal road to riches for passive investors. First, be price conscious-buy bargains. Second, focus on the long term outlook. Third, don't pay attention to the short term outlook knowing that most bargains are created when the near term outlook is poor to clouded. Investing the Templeton Way provides an excellent road map for investors who seek to get into the details of how best to emulate Sir John and his fabulous success.”
-Martin J. Whitman, portfolio manager, Third Avenue Value Fund
“Through his generous counseling sessions at Lyford Cay in our early days, his sagacious investing, and personal example, Sir John inculcated more important principles into our culture at Southeastern Asset Management, Inc. than any other. Similarly, Investing the Templeton Way offers the novice as well as the professional invaluable guidance that will make you a better investor. It should not only be read, but absorbed.”
-Mason Hawkins, chairman and chief executive officer, Southeastern Asset Management, Inc., advisor to the Longleaf Partners Funds

The book is more about the very basics of being a value investor and the attitudes needed to be successful in investing (ie, don't follow the crowd, buy low P/E or low PEG stocks, diversification). But even that is presented in somewhat of a haphazard way compared to other books, such as Peter Lynch's books or some of the books about Warren Buffet. Chapter 6, "No Trouble TO Short The Bubble", is not much more than a recount of the tech wreck and an admonishment to people who bought tech stocks at high P/Es. The main points of the book could have been made in half the pages. Only the last chapter on China was interesting.
I gave three stars because this would be an ok book for a beginning investor, but for an intermediate or advanced investor this in not much more than a rah-rah book about value investing and is more like one or two stars.
Narrative style is vague and book lacks continuity and core theme and details.
This is a great shame as his track-record is extraordinary and some attempt at insight would have been powerful. Templeton's core investment themes include being analytical, distancing yourself from emotion and seeking out value - apply those to the buy/don't-buy decision for this book and steer clear.
The authors do an excellent job explaining investment vehicles/strategies and providing context to real-world situations where John invested. Great first book!
Apply Mr. Templeton's lessons to your life and investments and you will be successful.
To give you an example, chapter 10 runs into 20 pages detailing China's economic and political events. It has got just three main messages. Buy stocks in countries 1) with high savings rate 2) trade surplus 3) and high profits attracts competition.
So If you have patience to read 268 pages, which could well be condensed into not more than 100 pages, this is a good book. I have given it two star, because I do not appreciate anything which waste time.
