The following review was posted on Amazon by John from the amazing value investing site Shadowstock. Thank you so much for the amazing review John I really appreciate it and I highly recommend everyone to visit his site. If this review has convinced you to preview or buy the book, please visit this page with all that important information.
The first time I read Jason Rivera’s work was on Seeking Alpha. I read a lot of investment material and was surprised that I never read his work. Immediately I was hooked by his unique ability to explain investment ideas and educate serious investors. The detail and clarity of his work was practical and easy to understand. He deceptively packs so much useful knowledge in his articles.This was exactly what I found in reading “How to Value Invest…”,.
The book contains endless pieces of valuable often overlooked investment insight. Like all great books sure it was fun to read but I expect to be using it as a reference or studying to develop new subtle value investing techniques. For me the book was original quality real world education that is also so much fun to read.
Jason commented the book is geared towards beginner and intermediate level value investors, I don’t agree. I’ve read countless value investing books and if you take reading it seriously this book is for all investors even those with years of experience and a formal investment finance education.
I do agree with Jason’s comment you don’t need to an Ivy League school education to be a great investor. If only this kind of book was available when I majored in Investment Finance and Accounting from a “top ranked” NYC Business school. My investment skills would have been far better served reading, studying and understanding all the concepts presented in this book
