Buy this bookfor yourself, and for anyone you know who cares about theircapital!"
—Seth Klarman, President, The Baupost Group LLC

The seductive elegance of classical finance theory is powerful,yet value investing requires that we reject both the precepts ofmodern portfolio theory (MPT) and pretty much all of its tools andtechniques.

In this important new book, the highly respected andcontroversial value investor and behavioural analyst, James Montierexplains how value investing is the only tried and tested method ofdelivering sustainable long-term returns.

James shows you why everything you learnt at business school iswrong; how to think properly about valuation and risk; how to avoidthe dangers of growth investing; how to be a contrarian; how toshort stocks; how to avoid value traps; how to hedge ignoranceusing cheap insurance. Crucially he also gives real time examplesof the principles outlined in the context of the 2008/09 financialcrisis.

In this book James shares his tried and tested techniques andprovides the latest and most cutting edge tools you will need todeploy the value approach successfully.

It provides you with the tools to start thinking in a differentfashion about the way in which you invest, introducing the ways ofover-riding the emotional distractions that will bedevil thepursuit of a value approach and ultimately think and actdifferently from the herd.

"James' latest effort is a must read. It combines great academicand practitioner approaches written in a humorous and entertainingstyle. It has practical real world examples that don't requireadvanced mathematics to comprehend. I advise everyone to read andstudy this wonderful book.

Mark Cooper, Partner at Omega Advisors & AdjunctProfessor at Columbia Business School

"A preponderance of evidence shows that successful long-terminvesting requires a strong value orientation and a propertemperament, virtues commonly blunted by behavioural andincentive-based biases. Montier, a leading light in value investingand behavioural finance, shows you what’s wrong with standardinvestment thinking and offers important insight into how toimprove your process. Read Value Investing, live itslessons, and prosper."
