Book Overview


Named one of the Best Business Books of 2018 by Business Insider

The legendary investor shows how to identify and master the cycles that govern the markets.

We all know markets rise and fall, but when should you pull out, and when should you stay in? The answer is never black or white, but is best reached through a keen understanding of the reasons behind the rhythm of cycles. Confidence about where we are in a cycle comes when you learn the patterns of ups and downs that influence not just economics, markets and companies, but also human psychology and the investing behaviors that result.

If you study past cycles, understand their origins and remain alert for the next one, you will become keenly attuned to the investment environment as it changes. You'll be aware and prepared while others get blindsided by unexpected events or fall victim to emotions like fear and greed.

By following Marks's insights -- drawn in part from his iconic memos over the years to Oaktree's clients -- you can master these recurring patterns to have the opportunity to improve your results.

   Absolutely unusable for investing
The good points for this book are : The typical habits of financial book authors of telling us how much of a genius he is ended before page 100. The other typical habit of these authors is to sell their books to use their investment services. Everything he had to say could have been said in a 50-sided pamphlet. The book was nothing but a mind numbing repetition of the same information on public sentiment and markets. I should have known that a book on cycles would be highly repetitive. Using public sentiment will get too early or too late out. At the tops and bottoms, he looks good. The only cycle indicator he missed is the indicator for market highs, when every Harry, Dick, or Tom who just happened to make money think themselves a genius and have to start publishing books to document their genius. For free, you can go to YouTube and watch a guy named Sam Seiden demonstrate his trading techniques. You can actually see them work.
In-depth look at cycles in human emotions, businesses and economy. For new investors it is essential.
   The book could have been written in a chapter.
The repetition of material is pushed to the limit. Restating what is stated in a long past memo to the investors and then restatement several times through the book.
   Very disappointing
The most important thing was being a classic. This is not a pyramid. Very long-winded and takes forever to make a point that was already stated in the first book.
   The title is misleading
I was expecting a much more detailed explanation of market cycles and the techniques used to exploit them. This book would be better titled : Why you should pay attention to market cycles. Overall, if you are above the novice level of an investor, I do not recommend this book. If you are a beginner, however, this book can provide solid general philosophies and general strategies, which is essential when beginning your investing journey.
   Hoped for more information on actual market cycles
I waited impatiently for this book to arrive and was surprised that it did not contain much information about actual market cycles or how to exploit them. Mostly contains some general investment advice that may be better suited for beginning investors. I do have great respect for the author, but actually preferred his first book over this and would recommend this book instead. I tend to not give reviews on books I don 't love, but the title led me to this time.
Recommend reading his first book and instead getting all his memos.
