"Janet Lowe is the world's foremost authority on value investing with books on the Dean of Wall Street, Ben Graham, along with the mayor and vice mayor of Graham and Doddsville, Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger. She clearly illustrates why every participant in the stock market should be interested in this value triumvirate and offers easily understood practical investment lessons. Whether you are a professional or an individual investor, you will find many golden nuggets of valuable information."
-Robert P. Miles, author, The Warren Buffett CEO

"It's investing made easy. Janet Lowe succeeds in illustrating the key points of value investing-drawing on years of research and interviews with leading investors-and provides a fresh perspective on investing after a financial crisis."
-Professor Lawrence A. Cunningham, George Washington University School of Law; author, The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America

"A colorful and succinct explanation of how and why individual investors should take responsibility for managing their money. Lowe's practical discussion is geared to help individuals evaluate their unique situation and apply time-tested asset allocation, diversification, and value investing approaches to their specific financial situations."

Too basic and inaccurate at times Sept. 1 2011
By Houman Tamaddon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is a bit difficult to rate this book since its value is derived from the reader's previous knowledge. I have read numerous books on value investing and there was little new here. Lowe does not come up with any new insights, but I did not hold the lack of originality against the book. After all, it could serve as a review. As the author points out the principles of value investing are timeless. Still, advanced and intermediate investors will likely find the book too basic to be of any value.

What about the novice investor? It would serve as a nice overview of important principles in value investing. Even for those readers, there are better options, however. For example, "Buffettology" by Mary Buffett may be a more complete book.

What made me give the book a measly one star were some errors that I found inexcusable. This book is geared for novice investors and should make sure not to be confusing especially with basic definitions. For example, on page 87 the equation for Net Current Asset Value is wrong. The discussion that follows the definition would confuse many readers who are not familiar with the terms. On page 93, there are a few equations and once again there are mistakes here. Free cash flow, a valuable metric for value investors, is not explained adequately. At the minimum, a basic investing book should get these definitions right. It would have taken thirty seconds to double check the facts. On page 102, the explanation of retained earnings is grossly wrong. She states that retained earnings are an asset and implies that they reflect the company's profitability. This cannot be attributed to a mere typo either. Microsoft, one of the most profitable companies in the world has negative retained earnings on its balance sheet. Retained earnings can be confusing and the author does not serve readers well with her explanation.

On the positive side, Ms. Lowe does provide her readers with good general advice for investing.
Nothing Oct. 24 2014
By Derek Zweig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book had almost nothing in it. It jumps from topic to topic never really expanding on anything. Gives you a brief starting point for understanding how Benjamin Graham came to his classic style of investing, but other than that doesn't really add anything to the reader's arsenal. The discussion on which multiples are most helpful was mostly nonsense to an uneducated reader, as there's no mention of what to compare these too/how industries differ/how multiples change over time/how to adjust based on company specific characteristics...I would skip this one in favor of just about any other book.
Very basic information June 6 2013

Book had a couple of minor errors in the text and is a book geared more for beginning investors.
Was not what I was expecting.
Extremely well written summary of value investing; clear, thoughtful, thorough. Feb. 9 2013
By S. G. Stark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It was rewarding and delightful to read such good writing about definable economic values, about underlying investing values. The words are well chosen, the concepts are so deeply understood by the author that the presentation is insightful, and the stories are interesting.
