"This book is a wonderful source of knowledge for investorsranging from novice to professional. We can all learn somethingfrom today's most accomplished thinkers and practitioners."—Elizabeth J. Mackay, CFA Chief Investment Strategist, BearStearns & Co. Inc.

Beyond an investment process that involves charts, formulas, andfinancial analyses lies an art based on imagination and timelesstenets. Beyond Wall Street showcases the masters of the art ofinvesting: those whose success is built upon vision, brilliance,and the classic principles from which anyone can learn. Thisunprecedented book, based on the popular PBS series, features agamut of investment styles and subjects, from global investing tomutual funds, emerging markets to index funds, value investing toquantitative analysis, fixed-income securities to investorpsychology.

Beyond Wall Street compares and contrasts the strategies ofeight of the world's leading investors through substantive andcompelling tales of what brought them to their successes. Unique,thoughtful, and often irreverent, these prominent figures reveal,to the expert and novice investor alike, how brilliant investing isa feat of creativity, composition, and conviction.

Foster Friess founded the Brandywine Fund in 1985 and hasmanaged it to a stunning 560.4% return on investment and an annualaverage of 18.3%. When you buy a stock, "forget what you paid forit and when you bought it. We only want to look at where the stockis going. It doesn't matter where it's been."

Steward for more than 30 years of the hugely successful WindsorFund, now retired John Neff scored in value investing by buyingdowntrodden stocks with confidence that the pendulum will swingback for sound companies that have fallen from grace. Neff's kindof company bangs pots and pans in the dim, dusty, and forebodingbasement. To Neff, that cacophony sounds like great investmentscalling for attention.

Bringing a messianic fervor to quantitative analysis, BarrRosenberg's computer-driven strategies are firmly planted intraditional, fundamental stock analysis. "The idea is to look atcompanies that are in similar businesses, compare them with oneanother, and find the ones that are the most attractive."

President of the $13 billion Templeton Emerging Markets Fund,Mark Mobius is deemed the "Indiana Jones" of investing. "By seeingcompanies firsthand, you gain confidence. If you read only thepress you get swamped by negative information."

Winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, William Sharpe hasadded fresh dimensions to the notions of risk and reward. Sharpe'sstrategy of indexing outperforms most professional money managersmost of the time. "Pick the right amount of risk and return foryour situation, your willingness to bear risk. And then leave italone. Don't jump because there's a headline in the paper."

William Gross is one of the visionaries who helped haul bondtrading out of the basement vault. He launched—and stillruns—Pacific Investment Management's bond trading operation,which commands close to one percent of the $11 trillion U.S. bondmarket. "If the market is strong, our assets could be a half abillion dollars more than when I woke up this morning."

CEO of Brinson Partners, Gary Brinson manages $120 billion forblue chip clients who seek optimal returns across a global gamut ofasset classes. Growing ranks of global asset allocators select thesafest mix of calories and cholesterol, subject to a client'srequired returns and appetite for risk. Such is Brinson'spioneering role in understanding, articulating, and applying thisinvestment style.

Author and investment advisor Peter Bernstein analyzes financialsystems, from the progress of risk measurement to the latestdevelopments in modern portfolio theory and behavioral finance."Risk is the chance of loss and for most of history it was viewedas that. In the capitalist system, a system unique to America inmany ways, risk is also an opportunity. Nothing ventured, nothinggained is as important to keep in mind as the fear that if I don'tmanage my affairs, I can get wiped out."

Filled with priceless wisdom and insight, Beyond Wall Street:The Art of Investing reveals the big picture in fine detail.
