Can you spare three hours to learn how to beat the market? As unlikely as it may seem, hedge fund manager and professor Joel Greenblatt, whose investment firm has averaged 40% annual returns for over twenty years, can teach you how. You can achieve investment returns that beat the pants off even the best investment professionals and the top academics. In fact, you can learn how it's possible to more than double the annual returns of the stock market averages.

But there's more. You can do it all by yourself. You can do it with low risk. You can do it without making any predictions, and you can do it by following, step by step, a time-tested, proven magic formula that uses only common sense and two simple concepts. Best of all, once you are convinced that it really works you can choose to do it for the rest of your life.

A runaway bestseller even before it was published, The Little Book That Beats the Market shows how successful investing can be made easy for investors of any age. It's never too early or too late to start investing, and with Greenblatt as your guide you'll know exactly where to go and what to do. By following the clearly outlined simple steps and magic formula, you can achieve extraordinary long-term investment results with a very low level of risk.

   Great Title - Not So Much The Contents
While this book does contain some useful information, it is not for me. I have had good success outside of the guidelines it contains and would have been discouraged from even trying to invest, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   Great book.
It's great to be back home, said Blair. However, the plan is modest compared with other high-speed schemes. It is a lifetime investment strategy that will always work, he said.
   great place to start
Professional investor, Raymond E., said: "I am a seasoned investor and found this well-explained. It's exhausting to do a lot of the legwork after a long week and work, and the magic formula is a powerful tool to identify consistent opportunities, he said. This is not for the faint of heart because as Joel says, beating the market is not the same as making money.
   Great for Everyone, Only if you really can follow it
I recommend this book to anyone. For a mere $30, you get one of those "I'm a deal" T-shirts. Even with time, how many can stick to these principles? You can find more information about Dr. Goin's book "The Subtleties" by visiting www. psychologiemag. com. Take a look at each company's financial figures. BT has 30 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. It also suggests that if you build a DCF valuation model, you can compare it with the high flyers. It is an easy book to apply, even for those with little or no English. Yes, I am not a quant, but I would love to be one. It's worth the time to learn how to value and run a quick calc on the 30 companies, he said.
   I'll pass....
Though the first four chapters are well written, I kept reading trying to figure out what the magic formula was. I felt like the author was saying the same thing, Rekha said. Buy good companies that have high earnings. By chapter 9, I felt like I had nothing more to learn and stopped reading. There is no magic formula, and if there was, it is not fool proof. I found the book on Amazon. com, and the author referred me to their website. It's the perfect upsell What you find in this book, you could get your own YouTube channel for free.
   Excellent read, even today
This is one of the most highly rated introductions to value investing for average folk.. and reading it through, you can clearly see why. The rational, logical explanation to the investment approach recommended by the author is easy to understand and clear guidance to implementing the steps in effective valuation is provided as well.
   Sole purpose of book is to sell the Magic Formula
I have mixed emotions about the book, Ms. O'Neill said. The book promises you this magic formula, which it does explain in detail, but that's all the book was about and it strongly discourages you from investing on your own. I was hoping for some more broad info about the stock market and some of the other stuff. At the end of the book, there's a link to his free website, where you can use the computer system that generates the "magic formula." He has a mutual fund where he uses the mutual fund's own formula, which he charges a 1 percent management fee. I feel like the whole book and the website are just there to make you buy into this fund so he can make money, Sosa said. You could do without his fund and use the formula yourself, but I'm not sure how confident I am in my stock market skills yet.
   It is a good book but unnecessary
Beginning stock market investors will learn about the stock market and how it works. You are going to learn about the stock market and ratios. Since then, I realized that everything you need and want to learn is readily available for free. For example, one of the constants in the book is Gilead. In the three years since I bought this book, Gilead has made only a handful of investors money outside of the dividends provided.
   Greenblatt makes value investing as simple as possible,
Even with time, it is still hard to do. The mechanics are straight forward, but it's not a smooth ride to achieve results that are quite satisfactory, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
   Easy humerous read.
Selling books by Stephen Covey to investors is a good idea, even if you're not a book club member. It was used as a present for grand kids and then discussed with them.
