   A Gold Nugget of a Book For The Enterprising Investor
This book is written in a very easy to understand format, sprinkled with jokes and anecdotes. As a reader, you can 't help, but feel that Prof Greenblatt cares about sharing his knowledge and hoping that you can learn from his experiences, like a caring uncle. Although the audience of this book can easily be MBAs and Wall Street Professionals, Uncle Joel takes you by the hand, the average investor-in-the-stock market, and shows you where the hidden spots are to invest. He explains the blind spots of institutional investors and highlights why you can take advantage of this as an average investor. One caveat is that, like everything in life, you hope to be good, this book assumes that you the reader will put the time and effort needed to learn and educate yourself in analyzing companies. Uncle Joel leaves no stone unturned and educates the reader step-by-step on what to look for and why. Happy hunting! Happy hunting! ''

   worth its weight in gold
The book in two words is Institutional biases, the book is in a sentence a forced seller is the best companion for an enterprising investor. If you consider yourself a serious, enterprising value investor, this book is REQUIRED reading. This book does not have any magic formulas to help you become rich overnight, but it gives the reader something much more valuable a repeatable process. This is simply the best book on special situations - investments. The writing of Greenblatt is clear and concise. I never thought a finance book could be funny, but I laughed out loud at some points.

   Very solid read.
Greenblatt provides a lot of insight into spin-offs and other investment opportunities. I first recommend reading The Intelligent Investor ''.
 
5
   must read
contains material that is not found in other books. Written in a very entertaining style, it is very enjoyable. One of the most entertaining investment books out there is absolutely one of the most.

   Joel is a genius
Though the book suggests you can be a stock market genius, but in my opinion the author is a real genius himself to put together a great book like that.
 
5
   Alternative perspective on stock market investing
Greenblatt provides great insights into alternative strategies for stock market investing. On top of my value investment and quality business approach, hardened by Buffett, Greenblatt's approach to special situations investment is worth deep diving.

   Outdated
I now read a number of investment books and, like many of the others, was probably a good book at the time, but is now quite outdated. You are better off following personal finance sites on the Internet.

   Really useful. Portfolio going up really well
My lifetime portfolio is my downtime since inception and is now up 12%. Only 4 months into reading this book combined with the others I have used. Some of the things listed here are what every investor wants. Special Time Periods '' -- periods where the value of a business is down and the price is increasing substantially.

   Unfortunately the book came with very clear defect
This is one of the best investment books, Joel Greenblatt is one of the best investors of all times and an excellent teacher. Unfortunately, the book came with a clear defect of manufacture, I am surprised that they were delivered in this condition. The page cutting came in the wrong way, I assume that this probably happened to a small number of books in the same batch.

   By far the best book on security analysis I've read so far
If you read a book on investment, it should be Bogles's Little Book of Common Sense Investing. At the moment, I am midway through the book and I am impressed with Greenblatt's detailed examples. I applaud the practicality, which is all too rare in the securities analysis canon. His explanations seem intelligible even to layman using Investopedia. After slogging through Benjamin Graham, this should be easy-and-relieving reading.
