The advice given in the book about the 'magic formula' sounds good and the author backs it up with past 17 years of results. Its about picking 20-30 stocks with high Return on Capital and available in bargain prices. Its a quite unique way of investing as you need to keep selling the stocks around one year mark and then buy new ones with the magic formula. His website is free to find the stocks out using the 'magic formula'. But, its like a process which needs time and patience (and ofcourse money) and needs constant (atleast once in a few months to buy/sell stocks) monitoring. The book is an easy read with nice examples to press forth the fundamentals of investing in general.
