Publisher's Summary

Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway's visionary vice chairman and Warren Buffett's indispensable financial partner, has outperformed market indexes again and again, and he believes any investor can do the same. His notion of "elementary, worldly wisdom" - a set of interdisciplinary mental models involving economics, business, psychology, ethics, and management - allows him to keep his emotions out of his investments and avoid the common pitfalls of bad judgment.
Munger's system has steered his investments for 40 years and has guided generations of successful investors. This book presents the essential steps of Munger's investing strategy, condensed here for the first time from interviews, speeches, writings, and shareholder letters, and paired with commentary from fund managers, value investors, and business-case historians. Derived from Ben Graham's value-investing system, Munger's approach is straightforward enough that ordinary investors can apply it to their portfolios. This book is not simply about investing. It is about cultivating mental models for your whole life, but especially for your investments.

- mp "Fanatically passionate about self-improvement and never ending self- education"

An ok book - perhaps better to read.

The content of the book is good and the messages being delivered behind the content is very important. But quite frankly, to hear the constant delivery of quotations of various people ('blah blah blah.' Charlie Munger. US Business School. 1998.) gets pretty tiresome after a couple of chapters. Also, I wasn't too keen on the delivery - very dry and almost robotic - which exacerbates my dislike of the constant quotes. Just because a book is about business and investing, doesn't mean it can't be delivered without any enthusiasm! In my opinion, one might be better off reading this in book format.
