Review:

The biggest strength of this book is its simplicity. The author has been able to reiterate the basics of value investing which a retail investor must follow. Basic investing principles like the fact that risk and return go together and one should invest based on analysis rather than tips, have been stressed upon. The author has suggested some ratios for filtering companies for investment based on his own experience. Retail investors would find this useful as a 'primer' for investing. The book is a good attempt to spread financial literacy amongst the masses by simplifying the principles of value investing in a language that can be understood by a layman.

--Global Business Review

The best thing about this book is that it is a simple book, with simpler language, no mathematical and statistical models, well illustrated by taking actual data from the stock market and above all, perfectly practical and one can practice the same. It is hoped that this book will prove to be an extremely rewarding investment guide for both amateur and professional investors.
