This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 28, James rated it liked it. Interesting book although some of it went over my head. I have a cursory knowledge of investing and it was certainly needed to understand this book. Parts of it were confusing and you definitely needed to pay close attention throughout parts of it.
However, don't let this deter you from reading! The stories are fascinating to say the least, especially if you have an interest in finance.

This book tracks the stories of some of the most successful investors in the history of Wall Street. It contains fundamental lessons and the anecdotes it contains are being repeated throughout the world today. Scandals, overly aggressive accounting, generous executive options, corporate greed, folly all have been well documented in this book and all are manifesting themselves today in the form of Anderson, Enron, Worldcom and so forth.
I like this book because it focuses on fundamentals. The most successful investors invariably focus on value stocks and long term growth. They look for basics such as earnings and cash flows. They look behind the accounting numbers and are not bamboozled by glossy brochures or big name executives.

A wise investor would not have been sucked up by the dot com hype. They would have seen the companies for what they were, overpriced flash-in-the-pans. Whilst this book contains many valuable lessons, the style was dry and at times difficult to get through. So, whilst the book is not an entertaining read, anyone interested in purchasing quality stocks should definitely have a look at this book.
Richard Phalon offers a somewhat eclectic array of biographies ranging from Benjamin Graham and Tom Bailey as marquee value investors, to Anthony "Tino" De Angelis who tried to corner the market for soybean oil in a huge scam , and finishing the book with a discussion of George Doriot's philosophy founder of the Venture Capital industry, as we know it. Clearly, not every individual qualifies for the 'Greatest Investor' title, but all of them had one thing in common: Perhaps one of the more surprising takeaways from the book is the focus on value investing.
The basics of earnings and cash flows, as well as knowing when to take the cash off the table are repeating patterns no matter the industry, time, or place. An insightful read given the current turbulence in the markets - it is somewhat surprising how timeless many of the principles Richard Phalon identified really are. Reading this reminded me that bad ecomonic news can create terrific opportunities in the market-- the moral of the story of the very first story, which talks about Benjamin Graham and his protoge Warren Buffett!
