Publisher Comments:

New and updated appraisals of the winning
investment techniques of seventeen of the
greatest "Money Masters"-- both new and old--
by a bestselling financial expert

In Money Masters of Our Time John Train once again displays his ability to explain clearly the strategies, experience, and human qualities of those money masters who have stood the test of time, as well as newer ones. He brings together experts who represent various investment "schools"--growth, value, technology, emerging markets, specialty companies, micro-caps, turnarounds, top down, bottom tip, and others--clarifying their similarities and differences and showing how different methods and techniques work.

Whether contrasting the long-term approach of Warren Buffett, with the "relentless pursuit" style of Peter Lynch or distilling the principles of market timing or expounding a list of investment "don'ts," John Train makes the collective wisdom of the greatest, most successful investors available to all, professional and amateur alike. Money Masters of Our Time covers the investment methods of: T. Rowe Price, Warren Buffett, Paul Cabot, Philip Carret, Philip Fisher, Benjamin Graham, Mark Lightbown, Peter Lynch, John Neff, Richard Rainwater, Julian Robertson, Jim Rogers, George Soros, Michael Steinhardt, John Templeton, Ralph Wanger, and Robert Wilson. Train focuses on their investment techniques and also gives critical evaluations. The text includes an Introduction, Appendixes, and an Index.
