How the World's Greatest Investors Win in Markets and Life
Edition: First Scribner hardcover edition.
Description: xxi, 282 pages ; 24 cm
In Richer, Wiser, Happier, William Green draws on interviews that he's conducted over twenty-five years with many of the world's greatest investors, from Sir John Templeton to Charlie Munger, Jack Bogle to Ed Thorp, Will Danoff to Mohnish Pabrai, Bill Miller to Laura Geritz, Joel Greenblatt to Howard Marks. As he discovered, their talents extend well beyond the financial realm. The most successful investors are mavericks and iconoclasts who question conventional wisdom and profit vastly from their ability to think more rationally, rigorously, and objectively. They are master game players who consciously maximize their odds of long-term success in markets and life, while also minimizing any risk of catastrophe. They draw powerful insights from many different fields, are remarkably intuitive about trends, practice fanatical discipline, and have developed a high tolerance for pain. As Green explains, the best investors can teach us not only how to become rich, but how to improve the way we think, reach decisions, assess risk, avoid costly errors, build resilience, and turn uncertainty to our advantage.
Contents: Introduction: Inside the minds of the greatest investors -- The man who cloned Warren Buffett: how to succeed by shamelessly borrowing other people's best ideas -- The willingness to be lonely: to beat the market, you must be brave enough, independent enough, and strange enough to stray from the crowd -- Everything changes: how can we make smart decisions when nothing stays the same and the future is unknowable? Ask Howard Marks -- The resilient investor: how to build enduring wealth and survive the wildness that lies in wait -- Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication: a long and winding search for the simplest path to stellar returns -- Nick & Zak's excellent adventure: a radically unconventional investment partnership reveals that the richest rewards go to those who resist the lure of instant gratification -- High-performance habits: the best investors build an overwhelming competitive advantage by adopting habits whose benefits compound over time -- Don't be a fool: how to invest better, think better, and live better by adopting Charlie Munger's strategy of systematically reducing standard stupidities -- Epilogue: Beyond rich: money matters. But it's not the essential ingredient of an abundant life.
