9780132607209: Investment Gurus: A Road Map to Wealth from the World's Best Money Managers (Selection of money book club)

Does it pay to try to beat the market? In this volume, the author contrasts interviews with investment advisors who don't think the market can be beaten and managers who believe that it can (and whose records prove it). Peter Tanous interviews Wall Street's top money managers who have demonstrated an ability to consistently perform well and Nobel Prize winning economists, to uncover what special skills or talents these individuals bring to bear and what in their backgrounds or investing approach accounts for their success. In addition, he shares the tools of investment consulting business that should enable readers to apply this knowledge to their own investment strategies.

Review:

It sometimes seems as if there were as many different investment styles in practice today as stocks in which to invest, with virtually every one of them--styles as well as stocks--offering varying levels of appeal to various people. Professional investment consultant Peter J. Tanous has come to understand this after three decades in the field, and in Investment Gurus, he presents a wide range of tactics and strategies that have been developed by acknowledged stock-picking experts. At the heart of this book are Tanous's interviews with 18 top money managers and academics, including Mario Gabelli, William F. Sharpe, Peter Lynch, Laura J. Sloate, and Merton Miller. The book concludes with "Your Roadmap to Wealth," which summarizes the success factors common to each of the money managers interviewed and suggests ways to develop an "intelligent personal investment plan." --Howard Rothman
