Investors -- be they aggressive or conservative, self-directed or professionally managed -- are always on the lookout for an edge. And in James O'Shaughnessy's What Works on Wall Street: A Guide to the Best-Performing Investment Strategies of All Time, they'll find a solid one: authoritative analysis of popular practices from the past. The author examines three decades of stock market data to show how 15 of the most common investment tactics have fared over time.
``. . .analysts praised his stock-picking strategy, explained in his well-received book. In it, he digs into more than 40 years of data to find out what strategies would have picked the winning stocks.''

The statistical work may be flawed as others have said but his methods are making money! (In this bear market, that is quite a boast.) His challenges of well-known methods that don't work may be even more relevant. (First rule of investing -- don't lose money.)
Frankly, although I thought this book is definately worth reading, I'd recommend Mary Buffett's "Buffettology" over this book any day of the week. Her book is definately worth the hardcover price. (Too bad I got it in paperback.) :-)
