Publisher's Summary

In 2005, Joel Greenblatt published a book that is already considered one of the classics of finance literature. In The Little Book that Beats the Market—a New York Times best seller with 300,000 copies in print—Greenblatt explained how investors can outperform the popular market averages by simply and systematically applying a formula that seeks out good businesses when they are available at bargain prices. Now, with a new Introduction and Afterword for 2010, The Little Book that Still Beats the Market updates and expands upon the research findings from the original book. Included are data and analysis covering the recent financial crisis and model performance through the end of 2009.

In a straightforward and accessible style, the book explores the basic principles of successful stock market investing and then reveals the author’s time-tested formula that makes buying above-average companies at below-average prices automatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is a breakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblatt explains it using sixth-grade math, plain language, and humor. He shows how to use his method to beat both the market and professional managers by a wide margin.

You’ll also learn why success eludes almost all individual and professional investors, and why the formula will continue to work even after everyone “knows” it. While the formula may be simple, understanding why the formula works is the true key to success for investors. Greenblatt will take listeners on a step-by-step journey so that they can learn the principles of value investing in a way that will provide them with a long term strategy that they can understand and stick with through both good and bad periods for the stock market.

What the Critics Say

"Mr. Greenblatt…says his goal was to provide advice that, while sophisticated, could be understood and followed by his five children, ages 6 to 15. They are in luck. His ‘Little Book’ is one of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there.” (The Wall Street Journal)

    "Loads of Common Sense"

    This is a really good book that presents a cogent theory of value investing. The author also provides examples (updated by a website) on how to put the theory into practice.

    "Simple rules for finding good investments"
    What made the experience of listening to The Little Book That Still Beats the Market the most enjoyable?

    I like the simplicity and clarity in wading thru so much noise in investing to find what you need to select some good investments (using stock screeners, it makes it even easier). Warning: Does require patience, and I have not used this system to know how well it works... but Joel Greenblatt has a good reputation as a very good investor.

    "ok"

    I wouldn't recommend this book. The book directs to a website that isn't user friendly for finding out about stocks. The book doesn't give good strategies.
