    If Graham is the king of quantitative analysis, then Fisher is the king of qualitative analysis of stocks.

    Not for a small investor

    I have read many reviews which say, this book is classic!! and what a great book!! . i mean, all this is fine, but can you say, information provided in the book can implemented by a small investor, the answer is NO. For example, it tells us to talk to people working inside the company and also vendors, competitors etc. to gain knowledge which is not available to general public. Then after doing that go and talk to the management of the company to understand the weakness and strength of the co...

    Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits

    I was basically searching for exclusive book "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits" hich was then out of stock. The book under review is 3 in 1 and made very short. Phillip A Fisher is one of the legend in the field of investing. Warren Buffett describes himself as "he is 85% Graham and 15% Phillip". Book is undoubtedly good and good for small investor as well but with some knowledge.

    Not as expected

    Thanks Flipkart for cost and quick delivery.

    The book content is not as expected. i was expecting some deep valuation methods from such a big author, unfortunately the books seems nowhere in front of "Intelligent Investor".
    I would recommend the later one.

    Horrible

    My review is not about the content but the quality of the book. The copy I received seems to be a fake one, the cover is damaged and printing quality is poor. Better to order a good quality hardcover copy. The book was delivered on time though.
