Still one of the best books on value investing

Excellent narration and great production.
The book is 10 years old now and starting to date a bit, but is still one of the best books available on value investing.
Very practical guide on how to pick good value stocks.
Highly recommended.

Good, solid guide to the subject.

This is one of the better volumes in the "Little Book Of" series. A sensible, to-the-point and comprehensive guide to sniffing out under-valued companies for long-term buys. There's refreshing little time wasted on lengthy anecdotes and pointless analogies, just a no-nonsense breakdown of what you need to know.

Narrator is fine.

Ok, but lacks depth

I found that this book was a bit repetitive and didn't go into enough depth. Still worth a listen though.

Wonderful content, but must get in print form.

Any additional comments?

The book has lots of technical descriptions that need to be re-read, never mind the lost charts. If you have the book it would be great refresher.

Great Introduction to Value Investing

Loved the book. It's a great introduction to the way of stock market investing called Value Investing. The book gives great insights on the differences between Value and other strategies of stock investing. This is a must for anyone interested in long term, sustained growth in their portfolio as well as fundamentally analyzing companies for potential investments.

This Book Names Names

This relatively short book is full of a lot of good information. What I like best about it is that it is not just theory: It names names for model dividend based stock portfolios. The book's website provides updated information on the stocks named and the top 1500 stocks in the S&P.

Enjoyable and Informative

Will not really close the deal on mechanics but worthwhile. An enjoyable reminder of things maybe forgotten.

Really liked it even if nothing new under the sun

Nothing new, but I really liked some interesting nuggets. I really loved the comparison of Value investing with Planting crops. And watching grass it's really mind opening.
