Critic Reviews

"By resisting both the popular tendency to use gimmicks that oversimplify securities analysis and the academic tendency to use jargon that obfuscates common sense, Pat Dorsey has written a substantial and useful book. His methodology is sound, his examples clear, and his approach timeless." (Christopher C. Davis Portfolio Manager and Chairman, Davis Advisors)

Better than any MBA degree you will opt for

Very detailed. Book is a bit hard to understand but making money can't be easy. I think if someone spends enough time to understand the message of the book, he will learn a lot more than what one can learn in an year in MBA. Books name should be changed to 500 rules. There are literally so many knitty gritties of businesses that this book captures.

think what has changed while listening.

Good fundamentals. A reading that works best with a note pad and revisits to topics of greatest interest to the listener. Do not expect anything on cryptocurrencies.
