"In Five Key Lessons from Top Money Managers, author and financial professional Scott Kays, CFP, draws from his extensive interviews with five of the nation's preeminent money managers - Bill Nygren, Andy Stephens, Christopher Davis, Bill Fries, and John Calamos.

Experienced investors will glean tremendous wisdom from the masters' frank discussions on selecting securities, managing portfolios, and increasing returns while reducing risk. Novices will build a strong foundation from the sound investment principles covered."

    Somewhat Revealing Book

    My intent in reading this was not so much to gain techniques for investing in stocks, but to gain an incite on the common principals possessed by successful fund managers. And I think that the book succeeds on that part. It seems to be mainly a mix of anecdotes and formulas. I took notes of what I thought were the key principals to compare with other things that I have read. Overall a pretty well written book, I like the author's style.
