Review: The World’s 99 Greatest Investors

Author Magnus Angenfelt / Reviewed by Felita Daniels / 325 Pages

I have been interested in how to invest since I was divorced and needed to figure out how or what to do with my 401K at work. I have read a great deal of trading and investing books since that time and have attended some seminars also.

Cover- World's 99 Greatest InvestorsWhat I found I liked about this book was that exposed me to some investors I hadn’t heard about. After realizing that the author was Swedish and that some of the investors were from other countries I was delighted to read more. I was disappointed that there were not any women featured. Each investor has his own chapter. There are headings such as: returns, advice, a brief biography, career, investment philosophy and any interesting facts.

I appreciated the contents of this book, because the author was a financial reporter and analyst he knew the concepts and had a sense of what people would be interested to learn. He also wasn’t selling a seminar, computer program or investment tip line or website. So there wasn’t any sales pitch. The writing was neutral and one of learning. If you enjoy reading any of Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards books, you will love this book also.
