Detailed analysis of various strategies

Confused with all the "expert" advice available on investing? Why does there seem to be so many different views and different ideas on how to best invest? Of course risk is one of the biggest factors as is how much time you are willing to put into analysis each day. Some people are comfortable with a lot of risk if the potential reward is a really large gain, others are not. Some enjoy watching the stock tape cross their computer screen all day long and watching their investments, others are to content to watch their investment progress on a monthly basis.Reese and Glassman examine the most respected investment advisors today and detail not only their philosophy but also the level of risk the investor should be comfortable with and the level of effort the investor needs to put forth to follow that person's advice. Each expert is analyzed one at a time including the criteria they use for investing, how they determine if a stock meets that criteria or not and examples of individual stocks with an analysis of where they pass and fail the selected criteria. The analysis is detailed and yet straight forward so that someone with minimal experience in stocks can understand the basis philosophy. Who are these investors that are analyzed? Only the most revered names in stock investng: Peter Lynch, Benjamin Graham, William O'Neil, Warren Buffett, The Motley Fool, David Dreman, Martin Zweig, Kenneth L. Fisher, and James O'Shaughnessy.Most of the experts selected have written their own books on how to invest. This book distills down all the fluff and long winded information in the other books to a single chapter on each advisor, a chapter with all the information required to follow that person's style. So, I guess you have a choice, buy several books and read them all or buy this one and get all the knowledge as well as a detailed step by step plan of how to follow their investing style. Complete analysis (even on those who have not written a book), risk profile information, detailed examples of how to apply the methods, and simple pass/fail criterion information, the information is complete, easy to understand and easy to apply, there is nothing not to like about this book! If you are an investor or want to try your hand at it or have a self-directed IRA or similar instrument then you owe it to yourself to read this book, select at least a style that is appropriate for you and apply it.

Great book

Great book with investment stalwarts like Fisher, Buffet, Graham. Best new financial book I've read in a while....

A "Must Have" for any Investor!!!

I've spent so much money on numerous stock investing books, hoping to learn some investing tactics...however I'm usually left feeling as if my time spent reading was a waste. There are so many financial analysts, each with their own stock investing strategies. The Market Gurus does a good job of detailing a number of prestigious analyst's strategies and has helped me develop a much clearer understanding of investing in general. I recommend this book to all interested in furthering their knowledge of the investment world.

Best book on investing in a long time!

This is the best book on investing that I have seen in a long time. I find that most investing books don't clearly show you how analyze stocks. Many questions go unanswered, and you never get direct answers. The authors of "THE MARKET GURUS" do a fantastic job of explaining the different methodologies step by step. That is, they'll tell you about each criteron and why its important. And then there is background and interesting stories on each of the "gurus". A great read for anyone from beginners to experts.

>> Must have Investing Book.

I just picked this book up at Costco, and I must admit it's one of the most useful investing books I've ever read. It outlines 9 investing strategies in detail. You can't find this info anywhere else (well, I guess you could find it if you wanted to read nine different books). It gives real-world examples, too, of companies that meet certain investment criteria, making it a very practical guide for all different types of investors. -- In this market, a reference like this is invaluable.
