From the Inside Flap
The legendary value investor Warren Buffett is widely quoted as saying, "I would rather buy good companies at fair prices than buy fair companies at good prices." That simple rule of thumb built him a fortune and is now known as high-quality value investing.

In my opinion, Dr. Tian has quantified some important concepts in value investing, and use financial indicators to measure them, such as using constant high profit margin to measure a company’s economic moat, so the art part of the investing become more like science.
You don’t need to have a Finance degree to understand this book’s key concepts. Adding humor to cut and dried materials, Dr. Tian effectively used many metaphors so even a high school student can relate and follow. Warrant Buffet’s wisdom is not out of reach any more.
I think many readers will agree with me that the investing wisdom in this book can be applied to many areas of one’s life, for example, marriage, shopping, career, and entrepreneurship. So, the earlier you read this book, the more intelligent in general you will become. Two thumbs up!
Charlie Tian has done an exceptional job by writing the book in a simple language that even my wife could understand, LOL! So well done!
The book starts and finishes with the whole concept of “buying a good company”. This was the same belief that I had before even I read the book. Charlie also uses good humour in the book based on his personal mistakes in the stock market, for example, “The mistake that scared me the most was when I bought into Sears at $170 in 2007, thinking it was extremely undervalued”. As I write the review the stock price is $2.54 in January 2018.
The book talks about the inherent dangers of value investing, which was an exceptional read! So well done! Charlie has also done a good job brining the core concepts of Warren Buffet, and Peter Lynch in an exceptional manner on how to identify and buy exceptional companies!
In the future edition, I would like Charlie to write more about the concept of economic moat (wide, narrow and none). Keep in mind that the book does cover about this critical topic.
Overall the book is a must read for those who enjoy learning!
as he is writing in an area where there are no new books being published.
