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

Investment advisor Peter Tanous takes you behind the scenes with Wall Street's movers and shakers, going head-to-head with 14 of the country's top money managers and four leading financial economists to uncover their proven techniques for beating the market consistently, year after year.
