July 11, 2017

Since published six weeks ago, “Invest Like a Guru”, the book by GuruFocus Founder Dr. Charlie Tian, has continued to receive great reviews by the readers. These are some of the latest reviews by readers with “Verified Purchase” status at Amazon:


Charlie Tian does excellent job of bringing lessons from all the investing gurus together. And he does it a way that their insights build upon and compliment one another. I recommend this book for investors of all levels.

I have read several books on value investing including indian authors . This book by Charlie is by far the best among them. There are two filters 1) only buy good companies 2) by them on sale .Charlie has given us exact criteria's to determine what inherent characteristics good companies have which should be looked in the process of filtering good stocks to invest in.2) exactly to determine if they are undervalued or not.

The idea is safe investments which grow value over time.

I've followed Charlie for many years and always amazed and the knowledge and acumen he displayed.

Now I know why.

The book is targeted towards the newer investor. Nevertheless, it provides a very good framework of how to approach investing in stocks like a value investor.

Most books gloss over valuation and practical strategies, but Invest Like a Guru leads you down an informative and logical way. Sure, there could have been more details, but I understand that this book isn't meant for highly experienced investors.

If your expectations is of an academic book with tons of statistical research, this is not for you.
If your expectations is to find a valuable book that covers more than other typical "value investing" books, and help you gain footing, this is for you.

Quick summary:
- easy to read and understand
- covers other important topics of value investing like different valuation methods, how specific guru investors invested which you can learn from
- practical examples to follow along

Among the 35 readers who have written the review, 31 have given “Invest Like a Guru” five-star ranking. The reader who has given four-star ranking has also given great comments on the book.
