Over a 35 year career in equity investing, I have come across few books which I have found to be useful. This book is one of the few. It belongs on my very short list of recommended reading for any serious investor.
Philip K. Swigard Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder and Private Investor
If you want to understand literature, you study the great authors; music, the great composers. Why, then, do most investment courses ignore the great investors and instead preach the efficient market theory, which tells us no one can beat the market and ignore those who do? Thankfully, Nikki Rosss Lessons from the Legends of Wall Street helps to right the score. Youll find more practical advice in this one book than in a dozen academic investment texts.
Don Phillips CEO, Morningstar, Inc.
Well done! An excellent book for the investing public. The blend of biography and academic text is unique. It makes learning more fun.
T. Wayne Whipple, CFA Executive Director, The New York Society of Security Analysts, Inc.
Articulating lessons from the deans of the investment world, this wonderful how-to book is a remarkable resource for investors.
