    " Major influence on my investing life... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lance Wiggs | 1/26/2014

    " Like Casablanca this book seems full of cliches and common knowledge, until you realise that it's the source of all that. I found the forward by Fisher's son to be particularly insightful, and more importantly it tied together a lot of other, later, thinking. Fisher looks at the business before the numbers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrés | 1/13/2014

    " The investment advice provided is reasonable and straightforward, but like most good advice the problem is in the execution. However, the writing style is atrocious and the information contained could have been presented in 60% of the space if the writing had been better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fritz Van de Kamp | 1/6/2014

    " Most of the ideas in this book sound like common sense but if it was that easy we would all be rich. Unfortunately many of his recommendations aren't practical or possible for a common investor such as interviewing executives before making an investment decision. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucas Remmerswaal | 12/16/2013

    " this great read, gives you some background about value investing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryce Hansen | 11/25/2013

    " Great book on investing. It is the cornerstone of investing (along with Benjamin Graham's books). These two authors make the foundation of wise investing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Callan | 11/19/2013

    " Superb book, should be essential reading on every business/financial course. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron Martin | 9/26/2013

    " The growth investing book that value investors read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ming | 9/1/2012

    " This is a good book and tells you very well how to qualitatively value a business. Timeless advice, but the out-of-date examples does irk you in some parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 YFC | 4/9/2012

    " worth a read but the scuttlebutt method may not be applicable to most people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drew West | 3/24/2012

    " The verbose vocabulary and nearly too formal writing style make this a thick, gooey read. It was hard to get through. The content is good, a handbook targeted for the value investor seeking long-term growth picks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 k | 12/17/2011

    " Fisher laid the groundwork for today's long/short investor when he wrote his "Fifteen Points." This book should be an important building block in every investor's library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daki | 9/7/2011

    " The best book I ever read about money, especially if you have the patience to refer back to history because the events referred to in the book are 50years and older, but still very relevant and credible in the world of investments today, its a must read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicolas Pujol | 7/14/2011

    " The companion book to The Intelligent Investor by Graham. Personally, I prefer Graham's style and overall perspective, but this book has lasted through decades as one of the gems of finance literature. "

    " I can't think of a better place to discover the best-positioned chemical companies of the late 1950s. "
