This book outlines with real-world examples the basic tenets of investing, as enunciated by Benjamin Graham, the father of scientific investing. It further analyses how his master student Warren Buffett has navigated through the complexities of the investment world by following a few simple but extremely effective guidelines and become one of the three richest men in the world. It demonstrates how detailed analysis, independent thinking, and discipline can reap rewards and how one should control emotions and ignore market sentiment. It deals with examples from the Indian markets and goes through case studies of extraordinarily successful investors like Ashish Dhawan, founder of Chrys Capital; Madhav Dhar, former head of Emerging Markets at Morgan Stanley; Chaitanya Dalmia, whose own in-house performance beats that of most investment funds; and Sanjay Bakshi, who teaches value investing and runs an India-specific hedge fund. These examples demonstrate how the investors have followed Graham's and Buffett's approaches and made extraordinary profits from rational thought in a seemingly irrational world.Printed Pages: 126.
