In The Little Book That Builds Wealth, Pat Dorsey, the head of Morningstar's equity research team, outlines an effective approach to investing that includes economic moats and tells you how to apply this strategy to your own investment endeavors.
Divided into six comprehensive parts, this reliable resource guides you step by step down the path to understanding and discovering what an economic moat is, how to measure it against other moats, and how to best select a company using this method. While the moat concept is not a new one - it was made famous by Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett - Dorsey discusses how the modern-day investor can use this strategy to select companies that possess a wide moat and feature good growth fundamentals as well as an attractive stock price.
With this audiobook as your guide, you will discover why moats should be an integral part of your analytical investment toolkit and learn how to leverage this approach to build a portfolio of high-performance stocks.

"Good, but really needs updating"
This book has a lot of common sense advice, but was written before the market crash in 2008. Some of the examples are seriously outdated (but demonstrate why there really are not that many investments you can hold indefinitely). The other negative is the narrator, who has a "Gee whiz, Mr. Wizard!" attitude that I found a bit irritating, at least after the first hour. There were a couple of pretty obvious mispronunciations as well. I doubt the narrator watches CNBC.
I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in stock investing to read this book
Great book that helps enhance your thought process on valuing companies. Provided some good advice.
"Great conceptual framework"
The book provides a great conceptual framework in identifying moats, and finding businesses with predictable financials over long periods of time.
