Excellent text on Value Investing

It lives up to its promise of offering you, "the proven framework for finding the best value investments." It morphs you into the role of a capital allocator. It covers the whole gamut of value investing arena: starting from Ben Graham's Deep Value via Greenblatt's Magic Formula, Small stocks, Special Situations to International Value Investments going beyond your national frontiers it covers everything. The Key Takeaways at the end of every chapter helps you the remember the key points easily.

This text is just the beginning of your value investing journey which continues through the author, John Mihaljevic's eponymous website manualofIdeas.com where you get so much more. While I subscribe to his website's paid offerings I carry no business brief from him. IMHO, if you are indeed serious about investing in stock market, you would do well to read and/or listen to the text and use the resources at his website.

This text is just too good, I have the hard copy, the Kindle edition and also this Audible version
The beauty of the Audible version is it's narration, Mark Moseley did an excellent job.

Valuable Information

Valuable information for any investor but great for 'value investing.' A wholistic view for value investment. Great reader as well.

My favorite value investing book

So helpful in steering the younger generation value investors to best methods. This book is under valued. (J)ames and (j) oan Moriarty on you tube is important.

great book

it would be better to read it than listen to it because of the amount of information. however, the reader does about as good of a job you can do with the content and keep your attention

I'm going to listen to it again--may buy hard copy

Would you consider the audio edition of The Manual of Ideas to be better than the print version?

It is a very technical and sophisticated book. I was amazed how well it was read to me. I may buy the print version to go back and find some fascinating details that went by fairly fast, but I'm glad I listened first.
I felt like I've attended a semester's course in value investing at a top university. I feel so much wiser. Best investing book I've run across.

The best how-to book in value investing.

No more book you need if you want to learn how to invest like well-known value investors. This book not only covers the investment thesis but also deals with how to implement such strategy. I strongly recommend it.
