Well worth your Coin
Breezy interviews with many money managers, this one is well-priced and well-worth a purchase.
- Large book with small print; over 600 pages
- Price is extremely attractive
- Author neatly transcribes manager comments so they do most of the talking
- Wide variety of folks profiled
- Some superstars here – Chou and Doneville to name a couple
- Breezy writing style makes keeps things moving along and interesting
- A few of the people mentioned (not getting specific) are very odd choices; writing books and saving money, for example, doesn’t perhaps make one worthy of a profile in a ‘Market Master’s book
- Redundancies – boy, there are redundancies. Somewhat odd definitions (doubt complete neophytes will buy this book), master keys pulled from previous profiles, and even a pep talk to read the book twice. Could have been perhaps half the size but I don’t see this as an issue
- The author is very young. I say this with a smile, but the writing is ‘earnest’ and heart-felt; if you want John Train, who had his own investing acumen in place when writing his books, you aren’t going to find it here
- Despite the author’s contention much of the information will be dated soon.
- Like most books of this type, long on anecdote and short of company analysis/specifics. Profiles are mainly composed on a single interview which necessarily limits the depth, but this is not a big issue: the logistics of visiting these people to do these profiles must have been very hard, so I’m glad the author persisted.
Overall, I enjoyed it and was glad it was published. If you are reading this review, you should buy it.
Note - Despite the author’s introduction, there is at least one other high quality book on Canadian money managers – Bob Thompson’s Stock Market Superstars.
If you liked this book also try:
*Chan - the Value investors
*Thompson - Stock Market Superstars (As noted, an earlier CAD money manager book)
*Kazanjian - Wizards of Wall Street (very dated)
*Free Capital - Thomas (really liked this one)
And of course Money Masters, New Money Masters, and Money Masters of Our Time by John Train which are generally acknowledged as the most influential 'manager profile' books ever written
