Summary

A comprehensive value-investing framework for the individual investor.

In a straightforward and accessible manner, The Dhandho Investor lays out the powerful framework of value investing. Written with the intelligent individual investor in mind, this comprehensive guide distills the Dhandho capital allocation framework of the business-savvy Patels from India and presents how they can be applied successfully to the stock market. The Dhandho method expands on the groundbreaking principles of value investing expounded by Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, and Charlie Munger.

Listeners will be introduced to important value investing concepts such as "Heads, I win! Tails, I don't lose that much!", "Few Bets, Big Bets, Infrequent Bets", Abhimanyu's dilemma, and a detailed treatise on using the Kelly Formula to invest in undervalued stocks.

Using a light, entertaining style, Pabrai lays out the Dhandho framework in an easy-to-use format. Any investor who adopts the framework is bound to improve on results and soundly beat the markets and most professionals.

A good concept to investing

This book helps bring together successful strategies from other value investors such as buffet and greenblat and turns into his own. this is the authors philosophy use what works don't try to reinvent the weak and minimise your risk. nevertheless this requires great skill and most investors will struggle to achieve this.

One of the best investing books

I have read 10 investing books in the last year and this is in the top 2 with tons of straight forward advice in an easy to digest fashion. I think I have become a Pabrai fanboy

Sincerely, please listen to this book

Written in 2006, holds value still, just like value investing!

Examples are plenty and case studies are practical.

Genuine advice from author.

To the point!

Many similar books I’ve read will beat you over the head with endless examples. Not this one. Aside from repeating the Dhandho principal for recognition this book offers simple rules you can follow along with resources to help along the way.

This book is more for gamblers than investors.

This book intentionally or unintentionally encourages gambling. The author sees starting businesses, buying businesses, and stocks the same and equal to bets in a casino. Studied, understood, and calculated risk is not the same as pushing a button in a casino where no brain power is required and odds are against you. Is there risk in driving a car? Yes. Is it the same as Options? I don't think so. This will not be a book I will recommend my son to read.

Great book - see also The Black Swan

Great book on value investing. However make sure to also read The Black Swan by Nassim Taleb if you’re going to implement these strategies

Slow and always uses the same examples

Slow
Uses same examples
More « business focused » rather than stock market focused.
Listened to 80% then quit. Was not possible to continue listening again.
