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.

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

Loved this Book!

This book has completely shifted my mindset on not just investing, but on life. Be a giver, seek value, and create wealth to give. Choose companies & people to believe into, not the market. Thank you Mohnish Pabrai for such an amazing work, and Neil Shah for such a personable tone and enthusiastic way of telling the story. This is one of the books I will continue to visit and re-read (listen) to in the future!

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.

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.

Highly informative and accessible

Many investment books are dry and overly number heavy and this one strikes a perfect balance of having super practical information based upon actual case studies. Pabrai is a humble genius and a true craftsman in that he also managed to do a brilliant job with the prose as well with wonderful story telling that colors and contextualizes and confirms the entire modus operandi behind the Dhandho lens on business and investing and his own personal approach to it.

Short, Sweet, Useful information every page!

This has been my favorite book of getting across the tenants and ideas of value investing in a compact narrative. Performance is great and doesn't getting in the way.
