If you haven’t read Schwed’s book, buy a copy. Its wisdom and humor are truly priceless. This book was first published in 1940 and is the funniest book ever written about investing. It lightly delivers many truly important messages on the subject.
An honest account of how difficult it can be to build and manage a business. Not only is Ben’s story an interesting one, but the lessons he has learned and advice he gives are important for anyone who wants to start, grow or run a business — no matter the industry. He is a great businessman and his advice can empower people to harness their creativity and entrepreneurial spirit in a practical way.
A wonderful book on wisdom and decision-making written by a wise decision-maker. This is the kind of book you read first, then leave by your bedside and re-read a bit every day, so you can slowly soak up the wisdom. It is sort of Montaigne but applied to business, with a great investigation of the psychological dimension of decision-making. I like the book for many reasons –the main one is that it was written by a practitioner who knows what he wants, not by an academic. Enjoy it!
Well-reported and well-written. Investors can learn much from ‘Bull!’
Read this book now; wait a while, then read it again.
When a risk taker writes a book, read it. In the case of Peter Thiel, read it twice. Or, to be safe, three times. This is a classic.
By far, the best book on investing ever written. To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information, What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. This book precisely and clearly prescribes the proper framework. You must provide the emotional discipline.
