Value Investing has been pioneered and is used by the world's most famous investors, including Warren Buffett, Ben Graham, John Templeton, Joel Greenblatt, Bruce Greenwald and many more.  It offers tried and tested techniques to making money out of buying underpriced shares and securities. 

In this important new book, the highly respected and controversial value investor and behavioural analyst, James Montier explains how value investing is the only tried and tested method of delivering sustainable long-term returns. This begs the question why isn't everyone a value investor? In part, it is because value investing requires a different mindset and the methods, approach and conclusions of value investing are very different from those taught in business schools and finance courses. In this book James shares his tried and tested techniques and provides the latest and most cutting edge tools and techniques you will need to deploy the value approach successfully.

James shows you why everything you learnt at business school is wrong; how to think properly about valuation and risk; how to avoid the dangers of growth investing; how to be a contrarian; how to short stocks; how to avoid value traps; how to hedge ignorance using cheap insurance.  Crucially he also gives real time examples of the principles outlined in the context of the last 18 months.
