I was in Joel Greenblatt's class at Columbia and he assigned this book. It is by far the most useful equity investing book I've ever read. You can't argue with the success of Special Situation investing or with his track record. He gives real life examples showing his thought process and by the end of the book you realize there is no "trick." It's just keeping your eyes open to these situations and realizing that in many cases the individual investor has a distinct advantage over the institutions that have size and style constraints regarding their investing.

Greenblatt's book is an excellent, easy to read explanation for why such apparently unappealing Wall Street actions as corporate spinoffs are actually a terrific investment opportunity. Through sample cases and anecdotes, the author gives an excellent discussion of the fundamentals of good investments, from upside potential of stocks to managerial incentives.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about some of the black and white fundamentals of the market.

This is a good book with some real life investment experiences as well as examples of the author's experiences. I have learned a few new things I hadn't thought about investing in as well as went over a lot of stuff other authors have brought up. Lots of references to Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffet as well. I did find it hard to finish the book as it was somewhat dry but I did finish it and did learn a few things so all in all a good read to expand my investment knowledge....LMS

If you are just starting out, or an experienced investor, this book is a must read! I could not put it down once I started. There are many insightful "clues" that the author outlines and these are woven together with past case studies to present a picture of what one might look for in future opportunities. This should be required reading for anyone interested in investing! Thanks to Joel Greenblatt for giving us his secrets

Joel Greenblatt really introduces new concepts and ideas into the investing world. You won't find the same old information thrown around again, and you won't find a new number crunching method or explanation. You'll find really inventive thinking. After reading books from Benjamin Graham and Phillip Fisher, it is interesting that there is a book that really does teach me somethings I didn't know.
