"John Heins and Whitney Tilson, co-founders of the Value Investor Insight newsletter, have done a thorough job of explaining how to look for stocks that are trading at significant discounts to what they are worth - the concept known as the value style of investing.... the authors present a clear framework for ferreting out undervalued companies." (The New York Times)
This book comprises excerpts from interviews with value fund managers each one typically one paragraph in length.
The quotations are grouped together in themes, but still do not flow easily in the way a written book would.
I've listened to this book twice now, about 12 months apart and got far more from it on the second listening, having listened to several other investing books in between.
The book does provide a real insight into what value investors look for when evaluating a potential stock, when they would buy and when they would sell. They don't all agree and their are a wide range of views, all valuable.
"Collection of quotations with no narrative"
This could be a nice hard cover book to own. You could flip through the pages for quotes from investors you are familiar with, and mull over the different perspectives.
But a collection of quotations with no narrative to pull them together makes for a strange audio book. I would advise that this book be enjoyed in a different format.
"great for quotes not great for audiobook"
like the authors a lot but book is too much quotes not enough insight or analysis. fine but not great
"Reader, reads too fast."
Yes. Great tid-bits and take aways, insights thoughts on how advance investors think.
I thought it was read too fast for me. And the android Audible app has no .75x speed. A little strange considering there is a .5x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, 2x, and yes a 3x speed.(Chipmunk speed lol!).
"Would have been better if"
Would have been better, more enjoyable, if a train of thought was followed through. As it is the book is boring and difficult to listen to, in spite of excellent narration.
I would not recommend this as a book to listen to.
