I bought the Kindle version of this book, which comes with links to the author's webpage that includes other learning aids. I highly recommend the book for the following reasons:
1. The technical concepts are accurately explained, so readers are getting an excellent discussion of basic finance and investing.
2. The style of the book is conversational (it covers complicated concepts such as bond value/interest rate relationships from the simple story of Billy's Lemonade Stand) and non-technical.
3. It marries the nuts and bolts of a business model with investing. It disabuses anyone from thinking of investing as another form of gambling.
4. The progression from simple to sophisticated concepts is well paced and with the online resources, forms a good self-study program.
In the age of the television financial high priest whose claim to legitimacy is achieved by deepening the mystery of investing, Mr. Pysc has written a down-to-earth book that everyone who has a pension account, a college savings fund or brokerage account should read. At the very least, it would allow one to ask intelligent questions of our financial advisors.
I found nothing new or a stunning discover in the book. But I guest the purpose of the author is providing a concise understanding/education on investing in the "right way". Overall, for many fresh investor it may a good start, but I prefer Buffettology of Mary Buffett over this book for beginner.
Except for the chapter about Adam Smith and "The Wealth of Nations", the book as it's clearly stated, limits but not fully decoded itself on the "cigarbutt approach" - Graham way , and missed a critical part of Fisher way - the part that made Buffett become the billionaire we know today
* Easy to understand with explanations of theory and how it would apply to the real world.
* Main aspects of how to find intrinsic value of a company for someone with even a basic understanding of high school math would have a eureka moment. Further, it adds an extra dimension to your eventual portfolio, namely, the importance of bonds as well as how and when they should be part of your investment to generate even more wealth...after all - they are 'husband and wife.'
* And Most important, the strategies are proven. I mean the main points of the book are about Warren Buffett's 3 favorite books. I think Mr. Buffett has done well in investing..need I say more?
I close off with a main point I learned from the book: Be a leader...be one of the few 'loan fishes!':)
After reading several other books from Amazon on stock investing I was left out in the cold - most books seems to give you a lot of qualitative information and only touch on important ratios and data with no real background as to why.
This book uses a KISS (Keep It Simple...) format to convey a lot of priceless information to the reader - this takes the complexity and bore out of essential topics you need to cover to truly understand investing in the market from the bottom up.
I realized that prior to reading this book my own strategies for investing were little more than speculation and since getting the solid foundation this book offered me I have been able to identify stocks in solid companies that were undervalued and have reaped the returns.
The books is even backed up with top quality videos for every chapter on the authors website. I really can't say enough good things about it what more could you want & at a bargain price!!!
So, despite the misleading title, if you have never read a book on value investing then this book serves as a decent introduction. It is short and concise and breaks down key concepts into the most elementary language possible, often using easy to understand stories to illustrate the principles. This book is probably most appropriate for a young adult that you want to introduce to value investing.
