    Does what the title says

    Very nicely laid out, clear and concise. If you want to get started in value investing, you will find this book does what it says.<BR/><BR/>The basic premise of value investing, as stated in the book, is that you are trying to buy $1 worth of value for 70c. The problems come when you try to determine what fair value is. As I discovered in my research for "Stock Fundamentals On Trial: Do Dividend Yield, P/E and PEG Really Work?", it's not necessarily a simple matter of screening for stocks with high dividend yield, or low P/E, or low PEG. And it gets harder if you base your decisions on forecasts of those fundamental measure, because analysts' forecasts can turn out to be spectacularly wrong -- as the past 18 months has shown.<BR/><BR/>Favorable fundamentals are an indicator of the value that might be unlocked at some future time, but are no guarantee. In the meantime even grossly overvalued stocks can rise ever higher during a bull market -- until the bubble bursts.<BR/><BR/>There are many ways to make (and lose) money in the markets, and value investing is one of them. This book explains it very well.
