A bit TOO clipped for me

There is so much for a value investor to learn about analyzing financial statements and so on, it cannot, despite perhaps good intentions here, be effectively shoehorned into this small of a package. I often like to start with quick summaries and simplifications to get overviews and main ideas, and then dig into deeper sources, but I would have to warn anyone that this is a scratch at the surface.

It is just a summary

I bought this book thinking it is a complete book but it is not. It is just a summary of the book.

Too short of a summary

This book contains far more knowledge than what is summarized in this takeaway. It has good points but really leaves a lot out. I would highly suggest opting for the full version.

Don't buy this. It's not the book.

Very misleading. I wasted a credit on this. It's a lame summary of the book. It was displayed as a recommendation next to another book by the same author. Avoid "Instaread". If you don't have enough discipline to read the whole book you shouldn't be investing.

Great Summation

I needed an INTELLIGENT INVESTOR content reminder & this one was perfect. It outlined each chapter then added a summary of key points. Great breakdown of a low risk, defensive, value investor & how they make investment decisions based on 7 key factors.

Great for beginners!!!

This book covers all the basics for investing. There is a lot of information packed in this small book and I will recommend it to any future investor. Starting here will save you a lot of money in the long run.

Read the book, you'll only get headlines here.

This audio book will give you only the barest of detail from the book's content. Good to satiate a refresher but not for learning.

Fake. Not the actual book you're looking for.

The listing for this is intentionally deceptive and leads listeners to accidentally purchase the wrong item instead of the actual book they wanted.

I can't be the first one to have done this. Be warned!

This is only a 31 minutes summary of the book, which itself is actually 15-20 hours.

Laughably brief

You can believe the words of the other reviews. So skin deep as to leave you more confused than informed about what the book covers.

Not worth it!

Needs Improvement

I felt it was lacking more substances seemed like a shallow go at a summary. Key points were way to brief, lacked charimsa in the narration and overall I dont think this summary is worth the money.
