Format: Hardcover
Money Makers offers a very direct and concise framework to develop business strategy that will enhance sustainable and long-term value creation for investors. The book is rich and illustrative in cases, which gave me a multi-dimensional understanding of how the principles discussed were critical in the past successes and failures of companies challenged by competitive and exogenous forces, and in differentiating their value proposition.

In the current environment, where businesses across the broad economy are cyclically challenged, Money Makers provides valuable insight for identifying and assessing businesses that could potentially be the survivors and leaders of tomorrow.

Quite simply the best business book I've read in years. I couldn't put it down - wound up reading it in a weekend. The author brings a fresh perspective to evaluating and predicting business success (or lack of success). She is smart, insightful and was able to get access to a wide range of impressive leaders.

I strongly recommend this book no matter what your perspective - investor, business leader, entrepreneur, student - highly valuable to all.

Format: Hardcover
A great insider's view on what makes companies succeed and fail from a professional investor who has the time, expertise, and, most importantly, the access to many businesses and senior business leaders to truly assess good management. Using interesting, clearly written examples, this book effectively challenges many commonly-held ideas about running a business, including how listening to customers can lead one astray, how more volume won't make a business profitable, and how employee happiness doesn't create effective workplaces.

I also appreciated the book's many checklists and exercises, which are simple and focused. Instead of theoretical mission statements and strategies, Ms. Fink shows you how to boil down any business to a 3-point "value edge," that distinguishes it from competitors. She also gave me a much better understanding of why stock prices act the way they do, even when it sometimes seems irrational.

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fresh approach illustrated by real experiences across a wide range of companies and industries.

What the author says is interesting for a few pages but its not worth a book but then again that's true for 99% of business books.
