Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

When the stock market booms--as it did through most of the 1990s--relatively inexperienced investors like to believe there's a new paradigm at work. That's why it's refreshing to take a look occasionally at how investors survived previous booms--and busts. What did the founders of Moody's, Value Line, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average think about the markets they were analyzing and attempting to quantify?

Thus, when Charles Dow writes in an essay titled "Booms and Busts" that "There is a pronounced difference between bull markets that are made by manipulation and those that are made by the public," you perk up. Sure, he was writing all this in the Wall Street Journal in 1899, but he could just as easily be talking about day traders and 401(k) savers in 1999.

Essays by more current investment gurus appear, too. Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, and Abby Joseph Cohen pitch in, as does George Soros in a must-read section called "Crash and Learn". Not all investing involves the stock market, so even Donald Trump makes an appearance, with an essay called "Trump Cards: The Elements of the Deal."

You won't find hot stock tips here, but you will find the greatest investors of the past century or so discussing the principles that governed or govern their decision-making. And since those decisions created some of the greatest fortunes of all time, it's a vital read. --Lou Schuler

Review

Editor of The Book of Leadership Wisdom "A great patients' drug is one that cures an affliction once and for all, but a great investor's drug is one that the patient has to keep buying." -PETER LYNCH

"Those who invest well have an innate ability to distill abundant, raw information into the scarce commodity of wisdom. Here's how some of the best have done it down through the years." -David H. Komansky, Chairman and CEO, Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.

"I personally knew moderately all the characters except Charles Dow. Any opportunity to learn more from such people is an opportunity that should not be missed." -Roy R. Neuberger, [his job title TK], Neuberger Berman Inc., and author of So Far, So Good: The First 94 years
