Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I enjoyed reading the book. It is about the author's life in investing.
In Chapter 10, the author gives his rules for investing. One needs to read several value investing books. If you read multiple sources, this book can help you a great deal.
I was a technologist in my pre-retired life.
In technology, one must read many sources and a study the data before deciding on which direction to take in solving a problem. Investing is no different. If this is done, Guy's book is a great help. In reading Guy's book, one can gain a great deal of insight. It is very worthwhile for a value investor to read. No book offers a magic answer on investing. If you want insight, Guy's book can help a great deal.
I was helped by reading it. Hardcover Verified Purchase. I meet Guy many years ago while attending a Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting and have followed his career ever since. When I saw it appear in an Amazon search I do regularly I ordered it immediately. First, the book was not what as I had expected as many others have noted and I was surprised at how frank it was.
Sharing your personal mistakes in such a manner couldn't have been easy but Guy has provided his readers with several valuable lessons that I hope young readers take to heart My first job was also at a firm that I wasn't proud to work at, Conseco Capital Management.
I worked on the Axys reporting system and I quickly learned what kind of firm I didn't want to work at. I hope all Guy's young readers keep in mind how important it is to work in an environment that you feel comfortable in with people that you admire. It's also so important to analyze your behavior and believe in yourself.
I practice concentrated investing which many people in the institutional investing world think is pure craziness but it suits my temperament. I think Guy also talks about in his book how important it is to follow your own path with readers would do well to try and follow their own path to happiness and success.
I highly recommend the book, especially to those who have an interest in the investing industry. Two great books on the subject, and they both talk about so much more.
It's a very clear, disciplined approach to investing. I'm a huge fan of Warren Buffett, and it's very inspiring to see both Guy and Mohnish follow his teachings today, and post very respectable returns.
It's a very refreshing read in the crazy days of day trading, and chasing the next hot thing, when the old and tested ways work as good as ever, and still very few follow them religiously.
The approach is simple, but staying loyal and committed to it still proves to be hard for most. Thank you both for taking the time to write those two amazing books! Highly readable and thought provoking book that looks into the intersection of investing and human behavior. Anyone interested in trying to improve as an investor or as a person will get something out of this book.
While the title has "Value Investor" in it, this is as much a book on human psychology as it is on investing. The concepts introduced in the book are scarcely earth-shatteringly novel. None of this takes away from the impact of the book.
This postmortem of Guy's experience is useful and extremely interesting in and of itself. A long list of "guide to further reading" at the end of the book provides the reader with tools to continue her education beyond this one volume. I highly recommend this book. This is, hands down, one of the best books I have ever read.
And it is a very rare, unique kind of book. Some of the summaries I read after finishing the book, even positive ones, made it sound quaint and trite, along the lines of, "Oh, how cute, an investment banker with a heart of gold. As a year-old male who, along with my dearest friends, has made it through a "quarter life crisis" surprised to find where it has taken me, such a book filled with honest reflections is invaluable. I wish every trade or profession had such a book.
The world would be an incredibly better place. And I know that, too, sounds trite, but I'm deathly serious. This is a book I will cherish for the rest of my life. I would also recommend this book to anyone who considers her or himself a general student of self-improvement. Along the way he learned some powerful lessons which include: Spier also reveals some of his own winning investment strategies, detailing deals that were winners but also what he learned from deals that went south. Part memoir, part Wall Street advice, and part how-to, Guy Spier takes readers on a ride through Wall Street but more importantly provides those that want to take a different path with the insight, guidance, and inspiration they need to carve out their own definition of success.
Review quote "[Mr. Spier] is worth listening to. He believes that most investors pay attention to the wrong things and allow their minds to get hijacked by bad ideas. Individual investors are constantly being exhorted to try beating Wall Street at its own game of trading like crazy to chase whatever is hot. But why should you bother trying to play a game that even most professional players can't win?
Instead, take a page from Mr. Spier's book and play by your own rules. The faster Wall Street runs, the more you should slow down and step back from that madness.
It is even rarer to find these investing insights wrapped in a set of life lessons that you will find thought provoking, challenging and useful. Pick this book up and you won't put it down And, oh, the lessons--of the forms of self-transformation, self-transcendence, and self-understanding that lead to investing success--stand to profit any reader, non-investors included. Cialdini, Bestselling Author of Influence "Our industry is extraordinarily competitive, and knowing oneself if a huge advantage.
In this wonderful book, Guy allows us to understand his journey of discovering his way. This narrative gives us each the gift of helping us understand ourselves better-- helping us become better investors.
I am both inspired and impressed by his example. A must read! It's the best book I've read that shares both highly valuable investing lessons and a fascinating description of the journey from novice to master investor. Guy received his education at Brasenose College, Oxford and Harvard Business School, and worked at the Forward Studies unit of the European Commission in management consulting and investment banking before starting his fund.
