The Barnes & Noble Review
As a matter of course, most investment books will warn you that Wall Street analysts' advice is often far from objective and impartial. However, The Faber Report -- in addition to offering a candid assessment of how the financial world really works -- teaches nonprofessional investors the techniques that the experts use to distinguish hype from substance, spin from truth. As CNBC's Wall Street correspondent and an anchor of its popular Squawk Box program, David Faber is uniquely qualified to provide honest advice that will enable you to become a "stock detective" -- a person who knows which numbers to heed or to disregard, which mergers mean danger, and which companies will prove to be of lasting value even in troubled times. Whether you're a novice investor or a seasoned veteran, this outstanding book will prove to be an invaluable resource.
Faber's fans will enjoy the book's introduction, in which the author describes his humble beginnings as a reporter on corporate banking for Institutional Investor magazine. Working in a dingy cubicle in a Madison Avenue office building, Faber began building his familiarity with the inner workings of the Wall Street financial machine. As he moved up through the ranks at his company and later at CNBC, he developed a sense of purpose that he describes in these terms: "I have tried to give anyone who cares to watch and learn an opportunity to use the same information that is available to those who make their considerable living working on Wall Street." As the book progresses, Faber offers detailed case studies that reveal how major companies were presented to the public; these blow-by-blow summaries reveal the ways in which savvy investors can learn to protect themselves and thrive. Accessible, trustworthy, and helpful, The Faber Report puts the power of knowledge back into the hands of the average citizen. (Sunil Sharma)
