Andy Kessler's success cannot be challenged. What are the intellectual tools that provided Kessler the insight to make wise investments, way ahead of the crowd? Philosphical understanding of this world, how to discover knowledge in it and how to use it to understand people. Leaders, companies and markets are people. What drives the value of a company? Leadership. That's the lesson of Kessler's rules. His advice provides a roadmap for objective thinking. That he takes his inspiration from Ayn Rand, who more than 50 years ago prophetically described the horrid state of today's destructive mixed economy, is no wonder. Ayn Rand is the thinker and philospher who named this country's greatness, and warned of its weakness. Read Kessler's book not only for the excellent insight into his method for identifying great new investments, but to learn how important a rational philosophy, Objectivism, was to his development and success.
