Summary

Ken Fisher questions authority. He challenges the conventional wisdom of investing, overturns glib theories with hard facts, and blows up complacent beliefs about money and markets. But the authority he challenges most of all is his own - because challenging yourself, Fisher says, is the key to successful investing. In today's competitive market environment, the best way to achieve investment success is by knowing something that others don't. But many of us, amateurs and professionals alike, believe we don't or can't know what others don't, so we continue to make market bets based on "conventional wisdom". Here Fisher debunks the conventional market myths that many of our investment decisions are based upon, and reveals a precise methodology that will allow you to know what others don't. The methodology, which has helped Fisher achieve success throughout his long financial career, is as easy as asking three simple questions. The first will help listeners see things the way they really are. The second will help them see things that other investors often miss. And the third will help them understand their relationship with today's markets. While the questions aren't what one might expect, as they have nothing to do with the market's P/E ratio or interest rate forecasts. They will help listeners make better investment decisions by identifying what they can know, unique to them, that others do not. Most importantly, they'll learn how to use the questions to improve investment performance. Filled with in-depth insights, expert advice, and engaging anecdotes, The Only Three Questions That Count provides listeners with a dynamic strategy and set of tools that will give them a distinct edge over other investors.

Prob sounded brilliant in 2007, but not in 2011

Has some good moments but the american "humor" (sic) starts to grate after a bit.

I did laugh out loud in one section. If I remember right, I seem to recally he wishfully described the market crash in the 20's(?) as something that couldn't happen again. This book being written just prior to the 2008 financial crisis.

He spends large sections extolling how debt is great and not to be feared. Tell that to the residents of the PIGS.

The Only Three Questions That Count

While the book is easy listening, it does not have a lot of meat for a specific action plan to expand your portfolio.

Low Value

Although the foreword to the book is good reminder that you have to do something differently from everyone else to outperform the market as a whole, the remainder of the book is useless for figuring out how to do this. Not recommended at all.
