    This book was well thought out and will help you tremendously if

    This book was well thought out and will help you tremendously if you are looking to start investing in the stock market. This book is very informative and tells you many different strategies on how to play in the stock market. With that being said it is very dry. Dry in the sense that is purely informative and might not give you any pleasure other than the pleasure of finally knowing all the different methodologies behind each of the stock market legends. Not only that but this book well tell you step by step how to use each of these methods, the flaws behind it, and how well it will work for you.

    Best book on investing in a long time!

    This is the best book on investing that I have seen in a long time. I find that most investing books don't clearly show you how analyze stocks. Many questions go unanswered, and you never get direct answers. The authors of 'THE MARKET GURUS' do a fantastic job of explaining the different methodologies step by step. That is, they'll tell you about each criteron and why its important. And then there is background and interesting stories on each of the 'gurus'. A great read for anyone from beginners to experts.
