In a straightforward and accessible style, thebook explores the basic principles of successful stock marketinvesting and then reveals the author’s time-tested formulathat makes buying above average companies at below average pricesautomatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is abreakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblattexplains it using 6th grade math, plain language andhumor.
