Publisher's Summary

A comprehensive value-investing framework for the individual investor.

In a straightforward and accessible manner, The Dhandho Investor lays out the powerful framework of value investing. Written with the intelligent individual investor in mind, this comprehensive guide distills the Dhandho capital allocation framework of the business-savvy Patels from India and presents how they can be applied successfully to the stock market. The Dhandho method expands on the groundbreaking principles of value investing expounded by Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, and Charlie Munger.

Listeners will be introduced to important value investing concepts such as "Heads, I win! Tails, I don't lose that much!", "Few Bets, Big Bets, Infrequent Bets", Abhimanyu's dilemma, and a detailed treatise on using the Kelly Formula to invest in undervalued stocks.

Using a light, entertaining style, Pabrai lays out the Dhandho framework in an easy-to-use format. Any investor who adopts the framework is bound to improve on results and soundly beat the markets and most professionals.

Good POV on investing

kellys formula and magical investing formula are takeaways. The POV of good bets, infrequent best, low risk bets and big bets is a good learning rather than diversification approach mandated by a lot.

precise and intriguing

accurately and unambiguously illustrated the dhandho framework. the insights from the great Mahabharata were an absolute delight. what really kept the book fixating was the authors own practical implementation of different concepts in his own decision making. the narrators tone was soothing, not at all monotonous like heard in most of the audio books and easy to grasp.

One of the best investing books

I have read 10 investing books in the last year and this is in the top 2 with tons of straight forward advice in an easy to digest fashion. I think I have become a Pabrai fanboy

To the point!

Many similar books I’ve read will beat you over the head with endless examples. Not this one. Aside from repeating the Dhandho principal for recognition this book offers simple rules you can follow along with resources to help along the way.

Highly informative and accessible

Many investment books are dry and overly number heavy and this one strikes a perfect balance of having super practical information based upon actual case studies. Pabrai is a humble genius and a true craftsman in that he also managed to do a brilliant job with the prose as well with wonderful story telling that colors and contextualizes and confirms the entire modus operandi behind the Dhandho lens on business and investing and his own personal approach to it.

Historic Examples and lifestyle changes

I’m one year and change into investing, a rookie at best. This book has helped me laser focus on some very simple but mandatory principles, excellent resources, real life examples...and perhaps most importantly in the last chapter, how it applies to life as a whole. Fully recommended to new and seasoned investors - this is one I’ll surely listen to again and likely purchase the tangible copy.

A good concept to investing

This book helps bring together successful strategies from other value investors such as buffet and greenblat and turns into his own. this is the authors philosophy use what works don't try to reinvent the weak and minimise your risk. nevertheless this requires great skill and most investors will struggle to achieve this.
