100-Baggers is a great read! Chris Mayer has distilled a good deal of the essence from stocks that have grown 100-fold or more in price. Such outcomes happen much more frequently than we might think. Mayer's intense curiosity and his wide reading of many obscure investing books enable him to bring us much useful wisdom to aid our search for these investment gems. And like Joel Greenblatt, he writes in an interesting, unpretentious way. Bravo, Maestro Mayer! --John L. Schwartz, MD (CEO, Chairman of Value Investing Congress)
First of all, this subject matter is fascinating! It is something every investor at any stage should understand. Rather than relying on hunches or cocktail party ideas, Chris Mayer's book really tries to uncover where the best ideas can come from. If you don't work in the mining or energy sectors or technology or biotech areas where early hot picks can do very well, one needs a formula to follow. Mayer has shown those bright enough to get a copy of his book how to uncover future potential 100-baggers! --David A. MacNicol (President, Portfolio Manager at MacNicol & Associates Asset Management Inc.)
