About the Author

Jason Apollo Voss is author of the forthcoming book, "The Intuitive Investor: A Radical Guide for Manifesting Wealth."  Over the course of his investment career as co-Portfolio Manager of the Davis Appreciation & Income Fund (DAIF), the Fund bested the NASDAQ by 77.0%, the S&P 500 by 49.1% and the DJIA by 35.9%.  Importantly, these returns were earned even in recessionary, and financial-market-bubble-bursting, times.  And these returns were earned with significantly less volatility than that of the overall stock market.  The DAIF was one of Morningstar's first 10 mutual funds (of 10,000) to receive its Stewardship Award for ethical stewardship of investor monies. 

At the time of Jason's retirement at the age of 35, the firm he worked for Davis Selected Advisers was one of the nation's top 50 largest money management firms and among the largest shareholders for a number of household name companies, such as American Express, Costco, Altria (i.e. Philip Morris), Sealed Air (makers of bubble wrap), etc.

The DAIF was regularly ranked in the top decile of its investment category and further it earned a Lipper #1 ranking.  The Fund was named a Lipper Leader, and was a perennial Morningstar Analyst Pick.  Voss has given numerous press interviews to: the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Business Week, Bloomberg, Reuters, Money, the Wall Street Transcript, Smart Money, Red Herring, Value Line, etc.

Jason holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance and Accounting, from the University of Colorado.  Additionally, he is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) as designated by the CFA Institute.

Other noteworthy accomplishments include: his October 21, 2004 epiphany in which he realized there was going to be a global recession, a realization that led to his retirement August 19, 2005; and his calling of the March 9, 2009 market low just one trading day after the fact on his blog.

Jason has studied the ancient martial art of ninjutsu, Eastern healing techniques and has taught meditation. He is married to his extraordinary wife Dawn Jacobson, a well known hair and makeup artist, and step-father to Katherine McGee-Russell.

I have been trading and investing money for almost a decade as I run a hedge fund based out of Chicago. I have shelves of finance books and not one has affected me the way that Intuitive Investor has. I know it is a bold statement to already claim this book as a masterpiece, but I will be that bold. Out of all the finance classes I have taken and all the finance books I have read none teaches you how to think as Intuitive Investor does. A few years ago in grad school I was part of a group to value MSFT. We built what I thought to be a solid model and valued the stock at $42 per share. Like a bunch of college student we had no answer to the stock falling. I believe school teaches you how not why. Jason's book teaches your mind how to comprehend and grasp the limitless possibilities of an investment. Jason's book rips your mind from the narrow left brain focus that is normally taught in school. He teaches you how to go from micro detail to a 1,000 foot view and back. I do not want to ruin the book for any reader, but the book is also filled with so many amazing quotes. In the first few chapters I believe he uses these quotes to awaken the right brain. Just genius! After a friend gave me the book, i started reading it on a flight. I sat at the Chicago airport reading the book for an hour after landing. I could not put it down. The book grabs you from the beginning. I have applied so much of Jason's wisdom to my personal life and investing career. I am better for reading this book, and already it is clear i am not the same person I was on page one. I have started reading the book for a second time and I am already picking up more. Intuitive Investor is an awesome experience. One that I know I will read again and again for years to come.

If someone had told me a few months ago that money investment could be an exercise in spirituality, I would have laughed out loud. The picture of the crowds in front of a Stock Exchange, buzzing telephones, monitors with strange, inexplicable figures, blinking away like crazy, as fortunes change hands does not really make for spiritual environs. Far from it. And the world of bankers, stockbrokers and financial gurus does not particularly relate to the finer, altruistic services associated with genuine spirituality. Yet this book made me think differently. After reading it, I was reminded, once again, that everything one does is spiritual, if one does it with love and a genuine sense of presence.

This book is chock full of information that reveals the author's sincere concern for his investment shareholders, who have reposed their trust in him and the efforts that he has made to give them the best value for their money. But that is not all. It also builds its thesis on a modern and increasingly discussed world view based on the "intrinsic order" description of quantum mechanics, pioneered by David Bohm.

The four principles that provide the framework for investment in this book are as follows:

1. Infinity: An infinite number of outcomes for a proposed investment are possible. This process involves left brained thinking which uses facts and sensory evidence as inputs in order to make judgements.

2. Paradox: Where possibilities are narrowed down to probabilities, because of interaction and interconnections between the several, mutually opposed variables affecting the investment. This involves right brained thinking.

I've made investment mistakes even when knowing better on some level. The analysis looks good but something feels wrong. Author Voss discovered how to consciously use intuition when making investment decisions.

Our brains have two cerebral hemispheres connected by a nerve bundle called the corpus callosum. The left and right sides of the brain are dominant in respective areas. Highly successful people show very high levels of brainwave synchronization when engaged in their areas of expertise. This is also referred to as "peak performance." Voss was a peak performer in mutual fund management. He found that ultimate success in investing comes from synchronization of analysis with intuition.

Famous speculators, including Jesse Livermore and George Soros, have written about curious feelings - hunches, often misinterpreted as insufficient sleep or backaches. They made fortunes when they aligned their analysis with these curious feelings. The Intuitive Investor is a kind of textbook on this process and how to use it consciously.

I've been using The Intuitive Investor method. My life improved because I'm not so hard on myself regarding making decisions. Analysis is as important as it always was. Yet there's never going to be certainty because, as Voss says, there's no future fact. Also, it's not a bad thing that emotion is involved in investment decisions. Voss explains the purpose of emotions and provides an excellent analogy of an explorer cutting through the jungle to get to an ancient temple where the treasure is stored.

Let me just begin by saying that I have read many many books on investing and this is the first that has inspired me to write a review.

Every now and then a book arrives that forever shifts the way we think about the world, potentially changing the way we analyze the accelerated influences that effect valuation. Taken to heart and put into practice, this is just such a rare piece of work. Timely and thought-provoking, The Intuitive Investor captivates the reader looking to improve his analytic process. I dont want to muddy Jason's writing and process by summarizing because it would not do justice to his overall message. That said, I have worked on Wall Street for almost 20 years and this book has blazed a new trail. It will help money managers of today and tomorrow better understand stock market dynamics through creative decision matrices. A huge improvement when compared to the dated valuation metrics/mean reversion models that were easily used by Buffett/Lynch/Vinick during the secular bull market.

Voss has assembled a stunning wealth of new information and emerging ideas to help us visualize different and imaginative pathways to utilize right brain thought to capitalize on equity investing in the new market paradigm. He provides a concise and profound framework for making sense of the blizzard of catalysts that effect investment decisions on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis. Hyperbole aside, Voss has accomplished an extraordinary achievement. Simply put, read this!
