Table of Contents For How To Value Invest: How I Taught Myself To Become An Excellent Value Investor And How You Can Too

We are creeping ever closer to the September 4th release of How To Value Invest and I am getting more and more excited to share it with you as everything keeps coming together.  It seems that those of you who have preordered are in for a nice surprise as well.  My original estimate of pages was ~210 with a max at 250, luckily for you it appears that I was way off.  The paperback and eBook versions of the book are ready and if the templates I am using are correct than the Createspace paperback edition of the book will be ~320 pages with the eBook version being somewhere between 150-350 pages depending on how big or small you make the words.  You will be getting an extra ~100 pages of content than what you were going to get.  More incentive to preorder for those who have been thinking about it but haven’t yet taken the plunge : ).  Directly below is the paperback version table of contents for How To Value Invest: How I Taught Myself To Become An Excellent Value Investor And How You Can Too.

Remember that if you want the three chapters I cut from the book for free to preorder before the release date of September 4th or you will have to buy one of the premium packages to receive those chapters.  Please keep in mind that I am still tweaking things and still have to submit the book for approval to Amazon, Smashwords, and Gumroad so if the templates I have used thus far are wrong then this could change completely.
