    Easy-to-read handbook on value investing

    This book is a great example of the architectural and design mantra, 'form follows function.' Its 'form' is that of an easy-to-read handbook explaining the basics of value investing. Its 'function' is to explain how Warren Buffett, a self-made investor who is now worth about $40 billion, used value investing to make his fortune. Buffett's premise is that people should base their investing strategies on common sense and search out assets that are selling for less than they are worth. For this, you don't need esoteric mathematical formulas all you need are the guidelines that this book clearly enumerates. Although author James Pardoe often merely reiterates what Buffett has said in his own books, Pardoe deserves credit nevertheless for packing his handbook with illuminating examples and stories. We believe this book will be practical for anyone intimidated by investing, overwhelmed by data or vulnerable to pressure from brokers. In his description of value-investing, Pardoe raises a good question: Why does Wall Street dislike it so much? Buffett's answer: 'It's too simple.'
