Fooling Some of the People All of the Time, A Long Short (and Now Complete) Story, Updated with New Epilogue
A revealing look at Wall Street, the financial media, and financial regulators by David Einhorn, the President of Greenlight Capital

Could 2008's credit crisis have been minimized or even avoided? In 2002, David Einhorn-one of the country's top investors-was asked at a charity investment conference to share his best investment advice. Short sell Allied Capital. At the time, Allied was a leader in the private financing industry. Einhorn claimed Allied was using questionable accounting practices to prop itself up. Sound familiar? At the time of the original version of Fooling Some of the People All of the Time: A Long Short Story the outcome of his advice was unknown. Now, the story is complete and we know Einhorn was right. In 2008, Einhorn advised the same conference to short sell Lehman Brothers. And had the market been more open to his warnings, yes, the market meltdown might have been avoided, or at least minimized.

  • Details the gripping battle between Allied Capital and Einhorn's Greenlight Capital
  • Illuminates how questionable company practices are maintained and, at times, even protected by Wall Street
  • Describes the failings of investment banks, analysts, journalists, and government regulators
  • Describes how many parts of the Allied Capital story were replayed in the debate over Lehman Brothers

Fooling Some of the People All of the Time is an important call for effective government regulation, free speech, and fair play.

The Big Secret for the Small Investor: A New Route to Long-Term Investment Success
When it comes to investing in the stock market,  investors have plenty of options:
 
1.  They can do it themselves.  Trillions of dollars are invested this way.
(Of course, the only problem here is that most people have no idea how to analyze and choose individual stocks.  Well, not really the only problem.  Most investors have no idea how to construct a stock portfolio, most have no idea when to buy and sell, and most have no idea how much to invest in the first place.)

2.  They can give it to professionals to invest.  Trillions of dollars are invested this way.
(Unfortunately  most professionals actually underperform  the market averages over time.  In fact,it may be even harder to pick good professional managers than it is to pick good individual stocks.)

3.  They can invest in traditional index funds.  Trillions of dollars are also invested this way.(The problem is that investing this way is seriously flawed--and almost a guarantee of subpar investment returns over time.)

4.  They can read The Big Secret for the Small Investor and  do something else.  Not much is invested this way.  Yet...
 
Let top hedge fund manager, Columbia business school professor, former Fortune 500 chairman and New York Times bestselling author, Joel Greenblatt, take you on a journey that will reveal the Big Secret for both individual and professional investors.   Based on path-breaking new research, find out how anyone can beat the market, the index funds and the experts by following a new approach that relies on the principles of value investing, common sense and quantitative discipline.   Along the way, learn where "value" comes from, how markets work, and what really happens on Wall Street.  By journey's end, small investors (and even not-so-small investors) will have found their way to some excellent new investment choices.

Market Sense and Nonsense: How the Markets Really Work (and How They Don't)

Bestselling author, Jack Schwager, challenges the assumptions at the core of investment theory and practice and exposes common investor mistakes, missteps, myths, and misreads

When it comes to investment models and theories of how markets work, convenience usually trumps reality. The simple fact is that many revered investment theories and market models are flatly wrong—that is, if we insist that they work in the real world. Unfounded assumptions, erroneous theories, unrealistic models, cognitive biases, emotional foibles, and unsubstantiated beliefs all combine to lead investors astray—professionals as well as novices. In this engaging new book, Jack Schwager, bestselling author of Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards, takes aim at the most perniciously pervasive academic precepts, money management canards, market myths and investor errors. Like so many ducks in a shooting gallery, Schwager picks them off, one at a time, revealing the truth about many of the fallacious assumptions, theories, and beliefs at the core of investment theory and practice.

  • A compilation of the most insidious, fundamental investment errors the author has observed over his long and distinguished career in the markets
  • Brings to light the fallacies underlying many widely held academic precepts, professional money management methodologies, and investment behaviors
  • A sobering dose of real-world insight for investment professionals and a highly readable source of information and guidance for general readers interested in investment, trading, and finance
  • Spans both traditional and alternative investment classes, covering both basic and advanced topics
  • As in his best-selling Market Wizard series, Schwager manages the trick of covering material that is pertinent to professionals, yet writing in a style that is clear and accessible to the layman

Acclaim for Joel Greenblatt's New York Times bestseller THE LITTLE BOOK THAT BEATS THE MARKET "One of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there." Wall Street Journal "Simply perfect. One of the most important investment books of the last fifty years!" Michael Price "A landmark book-a stunningly simple and low-risk way to significantly beat the market!" Michael Steinhardt, the dean of Wall Street hedge-fund managers "The best book on the subject in years." Financial Times "The best thing about this book-from which I intend to steal liberally for the next edition of The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need-is that most people won't believe it...That's good, because the more people who know about a good thing, the more expensive that thing ordinarily becomes..." Andrew Tobias, author of The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need "This book is the finest simple distillation of modern value investing principles ever written. It should be mandatory reading for all serious investors from the fourth grade on up."
