Publisher's Summary

The essential manual on generating consistent returns from the Indian stock market by Saurabh Mukherjea, the best-selling author of Coffee Can Investing and The Unusual Billionaires.

Over the last few years, there has been a growing realization among Indians that their life's savings, the bulk of which are parked in physical assets like real estate and gold, are unlikely to help them generate sufficient returns to fund their financial goals, including retirement. At the same time, many have lost their hard-earned money trying to invest in financial assets, including debt and equities. Such losses have occurred due to many reasons, such as corporate frauds, weak business models, and misallocation of capital by the companies in whose shares unsuspecting investors parked their savings. What options do Indian savers then have to invest in and build their wealth?

Diamonds in the Dust offers Indian savers a simple, yet highly effective, investment technique to identify clean, well-managed Indian companies that have consistently generated outsized returns for investors. Based on in-depth research conducted by the award-winning team at Marcellus Investment Managers, it uses case studies and charts to help listeners learn the art and science of investing in the US three-trillion-dollar Indian stock market.

The book also debunks many notions of investing that have emerged from the misguided application of Western investment theories in the Indian context.

Vital and indispensable, this book will serve as the ultimate manual on investing and provide practical counsel to listeners to achieve their financial goals.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A good book not for audible

The book has a lot of facts and figures that need to be seen than to be heard. Hearing formulas being narrated felt quite off putting. I have the print version of the book so it became easy for me but will not recommend the audio version.

Good read

There are very few books that go into this level of details on the Indian businesses, how they perform, their thought process for building the company and taking the stock holder along on the compounding journey.

Catchy title and amazing narration

This was my first book on Investing and I would say it was a great kick start to my investment journey. Amazing data points and narration are the key traits of this book which compels a listener to complete it in one sitting.
