    King of Qualitative Analysis

    If Graham is the king of quantitative analysis, then Fisher is the king of qualitative analysis of stocks. Read this book if your aim is to gain several thousand % in the long term by concentrating on few outstanding firms with excellent management. (For example, one could have gained more than 9000% by investing in GRUH Finance ( a subsidiary of HDFC) when it was a small firm in early 2000s)
    The book will help you to find future blue chips. Fisher's investing philosophy is focused on invest...

    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.

    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...
