From the Inside Flap
Over the past six decades, the U.S. stock market has averaged an annual return of about eleven percent per year. Yet, except for a few renowned Wall Street gurus, the vast majority of investors, both amateur and professional, fail to come anywhere close to those eleven percent average annual gains. Why do most investors fail—and what do those very successful investment gurus have in common? The Guru Investor identifies the stock picking methodologies developed by some of history's best and most successful stock market gurus—including Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Martin Zweig, John Neff, and others—and shows how you can combine these proven strategies into a disciplined investing system that has been proven to outperform the market.
John Reese breaks down the very different approaches of each of the gurus—encompassing value, growth, and quantitative investing—and lays out their philosophy and achievements, detailing step-by-step the secret formulas they used to beat the market, while explaining why these legendary investors consider certain factors to be so important when analyzing individual stocks.
Reese not only discusses the individual gurus, their strategies, and why they are important, but he also explains how to best use these strategies in the real world, showing how to sift through all of the choices to find a strategy that works for you. The model portfolio system that the author has developed turns each strategy into an actionable system, addressing many of the common mistakes that doom investors to failure. In addition to offering these individual guru-based models, Reese also explains how to combine and implement these approaches into a multi-guru system that will provide you with a comprehensive, practical stock investing strategy with a proven track record. He reveals when you should buy, when you should sell, how many stocks you should own, and much more.
All investors can learn from the thinking, writing, and experience of Wall Street's greatest investors. The Guru Investor, and its free companion Web site—www.guruinvestorbook.com—will teach you the lessons of these greats and give you all the tools needed to put those lessons to work in your investment strategy.

I also found it interesting that the author discusses in the introduction that professional investors almost always underperform the market yet the authors company has paid investment website, their own ETF fund, sub-advises to a mutual fund, and has financial advisors sell their managed accounts. Although performance is admittedly short on their ETF, as of end of 2015 as well as the date I write this 1/28/2016 the ETF has underperformed on every timeframe there is including since inception, YTD, and 1 year. As someone that says not to use professionally managed money it seems ironic that they have their hand in making money from investors in so many different areas.
The authors have analyzed and simplified the methods of ten famous investors having successful long term records. They have developed an approach to combining these methods in a number of ways, including their own proprietary combination. This book is not for daytraders but is appropriate for position traders and longer-term investors.
There is a nice bonus. Having the book allows you to sign up for the free portion of the authors' valididea.com web site. There, you can see up-to-date ideas using the techniques of the famous and successful investors analyzed in the book.
The other reviews here do a good job of summarizing the key points and the pros and cons of the book. So, keeping this short, I recommend buying this book. You might also benefit by reading this together with "Trade Like an O'Neil Disciple" by Gil Morales, which I have also reviewed.
Edit: Since reading this book, I've read a lot of others on investing (+/-30). This one might be the best. Highly recommended as well as the author's Validea site and Google "guru analysis Nasdaq" for his analysis there.
