    Pertinent Information

    I enjoyed reading this book. Mr. Tier gives the habits that have brought success to investment legends Warren Buffet and George Soros. It is important to know why these 'greats' or should I say 'masters' do what they do. This is not a how-to sort of book, rather it provides you with insights into how these gentlemen think and behave. This text explains what those who are wealthy have always known: you must have a system in place and follow that system always. Finally, I felt the need to read this book. I do not know where life will take me, but it is clear to me that I need to know how to invest properly and more importantly make consistent profits with little risk to myself.

    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    "The Master Investor" or "The 23 Winning Investment Habits"

    I rather suspect that candidate titles for this book were "The Master Investor" or "The 23 Winning Investment Habits" since both of these phrases are repeated throughout the book. Either of those titles would have made this book 'another one', but the name-dropping in the title gives it a unique angle. <BR/><BR/>I'm not sure that Warren Buffett and George Soros have as much in common as is implied at the outset, except they are both master investors. In fact, I think it is illuminating to see how two such different characters can succeed in the same game. The bottom line is that there are many ways to make money in the stock market providing you preserve your capital at all costs, only commit (and big) when your are damn sure you are right, and get out quick if you are wrong. Develop your own style, and learn from your own mistakes. <BR/><BR/>If I'm sounding a little critical, that's not the intention. This is one of the best investment / trading / speculation books I have read -- and I've read a lot!

    A wonderful investment book

    I can highly recommend this book to all fellow investors. It¿s a wonderfully versatile book and the ¿investor habits¿ Mark Tier has identified are transportable across all investment disciplines. This book can genuinely take the place of many in your investment library. It encapsulates all facets of investing and takes you step by step through a process which will result in an investment strategy tailor made for your own needs and personality.
