What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett? He becomes a real value investor. In this fascinating inside story, Guy Spier details his career from Harvard MBA to hedge fund manager. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder.

I recently heard about Guy Spier through Phil Town and his “InvestED” podcast. After hearing Guy on a podcast from last year, I decided to buy the book. I was struck by Guy’s humility and his authenticity. He spent more time explaining his mistakes, which were really learning opportunities, than any successes. He explained his transformation from greedy over-achiever to a humble person who learned what is important in life. I especially appreciated Guy’s comments about his psychological maturing into a wise man content with himself.

This piece, formerly titled The Divine Conquest, was created as a sequel to The Pursuit of God. Admitting to having been forced by inward pressure and an unbearable burden to write it, Tozer's aim was to assure believers that if they want to know the power of Christ they must be invaded by God. "This little work of the spiritual way has not been 'made' in any mechanical sense, it has been born out of inward necessity.

Perhaps more relevant than when it was written. Men like A W Tozer are needed today. Speak with love but unequivocally and unapologetically Christian.

Grover Gardner is excellent as the reader.
