The First Insider Look Into Sir John's Investing Strategies

Sir John Templeton is “The greatest stock picker of the century.”
-Money

“Sir John Templeton's savvy went beyond that of the investment world. A mother asked him what was the best investment advice she could give her son, and he responded 'to tithe.' He encouraged me and others to seek the spiritual truths that are every bit as incontrovertible as the physical laws that impact our universe, and then make a commitment to live by them. He was a giant not only in his 'out of the box' investment acumen, but also for his understandings of the broader issues of life.”
-Foster Friess, Founder/Fund Manager, Friess Associates Inc.

“Sir John Templeton knows well the royal road to riches for passive investors. First, be price conscious-buy bargains. Second, focus on the long term outlook. Third, don't pay attention to the short term outlook knowing that most bargains are created when the near term outlook is poor to clouded. Investing the Templeton Way provides an excellent road map for investors who seek to get into the details of how best to emulate Sir John and his fabulous success.”
-Martin J. Whitman, portfolio manager, Third Avenue Value Fund

“Through his generous counseling sessions at Lyford Cay in our early days, his sagacious investing, and personal example, Sir John inculcated more important principles into our culture at Southeastern Asset Management, Inc. than any other. Similarly, Investing the Templeton Way offers the novice as well as the professional invaluable guidance that will make you a better investor. It should not only be read, but absorbed.”
-Mason Hawkins, chairman and chief executive officer, Southeastern Asset Management, Inc., advisor to the Longleaf Partners Funds

    A Great Read on The Master of Investing

    John Templeton has been recognized widely as at least one of a handful of the greatest investors of our time. I was fortunate to discover his writing early on and have made it a practice to try to read every book and every article and listen carefully to every interview he gave. His interests in investing and in religion mix, his travels and his charitable work are all instructive but most readers of this book by his daughter Lauren Templeton will be interested in the investment techniques that made him rank among the world's greatest. This book has a lot for experienced investors as well as for beginners and it is not just investment advice but also wisdom. I can't think of any more important book for those immersed in the tumultuous markets of today- other than perhaps some of John Templeton's own writing but this book is more current and it explores some of John Templeton's more recent investment work.
