In 2005, Joel Greenblatt published a book that is already considered one of the classics of finance literature. In The Little Book that Beats the Market鈥攁 New York Times bestseller with 300,000 copies in print鈥擥reenblatt explained how investors can outperform the popular market averages by simply and systematically applying a formula that seeks out good businesses when they are available at bargain prices. Now, with a new Introduction and Afterword for 2010, The Little Book that Still Beats the Market updates and expands upon the research findings from the original book. Included are data and analysis covering the recent financial crisis and model performance through the end of 2009. In a straightforward and accessible style, the book explores the basic principles of successful stock market investing and then reveals the author鈥檚 time-tested formula that makes buying above average companies at below average prices automatic. Though the formula has been extensively tested and is a breakthrough in the academic and professional world, Greenblatt explains it using 6th grade math, plain language and humor. He shows how to use his method to beat both the market and professional managers by a wide margin. You鈥檒l also learn why success eludes almost all individual and professional investors, and why the formula will continue to work even after everyone 鈥渒nows鈥 it. While the formula may be simple, understanding why the formula works is the true key to success for investors. The book will take readers on a step-by-step journey so that they can learn the principles of value investing in a way that will provide them with a long term strategy that they can understand and stick with through both good and bad periods for the stock market. As the Wall Street Journal stated about the original edition, 鈥淢r. Greenblatt鈥ays his goal was to provide advice that, while sophisticated, could be understood and followed by his five children, ages 6 to 15. They are in luck. His 鈥楲ittle Book鈥 is one of the best, clearest guides to value investing out there.鈥

Market mistakes to avoid: 鈥淲ritten for investors at all levels鈥a] practical, no-nonsense guide.鈥濃擯ublishers Weekly One of Money Week鈥檚 Five Best Books of the Year Investors are tempted daily by misleading or incomplete information. They may make a lucky bet, realize a sizable profit, and find themselves full of confidence. Their next high-stakes gamble might backfire, not only hitting them in the balance sheet but also taking a mental and emotional toll. Even veteran investors can be caught off guard: a news item may suddenly cause havoc for an industry they鈥檝e invested in; crowd mentality among fellow investors may skew the market; a CEO may turn out to be unprepared to effectively guide a company. How can one stay focused in such a volatile world? If you can鈥檛 trust your past successes to plan and predict, how can you avoid risky situations in the future? Patience and methodical planning will pay far greater dividends than flashy investments. In Big Money Thinks Small, veteran fund manager Joel Tillinghast shows investors how to avoid making these mistakes. He offers a set of simple but crucial steps to successful investing, including: 路 Know yourself, how you arrive at decisions, and how you might be susceptible to self-deception 路 Make decisions based on your own expertise, and do not invest in what you don鈥檛 understand 路 Select only trustworthy and capable colleagues and collaborators 路 Learn how to identify and avoid investments with inherent flaws 路 Always search for bargains, and never forget that the first responsibility of an investor is to identify mispriced stocks

Praise for THE SMALL-CAP INVESTOR "The great rewards of investing in the best small-cap companies are matched only by the risks of investing in the worst. Ian Wyatt is one of the few who not only shows you how to find the hidden gems, but also how to avoid the flea-ridden dogs. His new book is a must-read for all small-cap investors, especially in today's turbulent times." 鈥擬artin D. Weiss, author of the New York Times bestseller The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide "Small-cap stocks are now the best source of wealth-building because there is now little to zero research on them鈥攗se Ian's stock discovery methods and find the ten-bagger innovative companies underneath Wall Street's radar." 鈥擳obin Smith, founder of ChangeWave Research and costar of the Fox News show Bulls & Bears "I love small-cap stocks. Why invest for 10% returns when you can find ten-baggers? But no one said it was easy. There are a kazillion names and every one of them sounds like a winner. Ian Wyatt, in his very informative book, The Small-Cap Investor, shows you how to find them, analyze them, and ride them for all they're worth." 鈥擜ndy Kessler, New York Times columnist and bestselling author of Running Money and Wall Street Meat "Ian has written the essential guide for anybody who wants to understand how to make big money in the stock market. His eight-step program shows how to identify and invest in the small companies that will become tomorrow's mega-winners." 鈥擬ichael Moe, cofounder and CEO of NeXt Asset Management and author of Finding the Next Starbucks "The one area of the entire financial markets where the individual investor can actually have an edge on the institutional investor is small-cap stocks. Ian Wyatt's book, The Small-Cap Investor, is your field manual for big profits. His strategies could help you find the big winners of tomorrow, perhaps even the next Cisco, Dell, Microsoft, or Wal-Mart." 鈥擠r.

In this book, self-made millionaire Phil Towns will show you how he turned $1,000 into $1 million in only five years, and then proceeded to make many millions more. Before I became 鈥淧hil Town, teacher of investing principles to more than 500,000 people a year,鈥 I was a lot like you: someone who viewed individual stock investing as way too hard to do successfully. As a guy who barely made a living as a river guide, I considered the whole process pretty impenetrable, and I was convinced that to do it right you had to make it a full-time job. Me, I was more interested in having full-time fun. So I was tempted to do what you鈥檙e probably doing right now: letting some mutual fund manager worry about growing your nest egg. Let me tell you why that decision could one day make you absolutely miserable. The fact is, because of natural market cycles, the mutual fund industry is likely to soon be facing twenty years of flat returns. That means that if you鈥檝e got your nest egg tucked away in funds鈥攅specially the type found in most 401ks鈥攜our egg won鈥檛 get much bigger than it is now. Translation: Get ready for a retirement filled with lots of cold cuts, plenty of quality TV-watching time, and a place to live that鈥檚 too small to accommodate your visiting kids. I came to investing as a person who wasn鈥檛 great at math, possessed zero extra cash, and wanted a life鈥攏ot an extra three hours of work to do every day. Fortunately, I was introduced to The Rule. Rule #1, as famed investor Warren Buffett will tell you, is don鈥檛 lose money. Through an intriguing process that I鈥檒l clarify in this book, not losing money results in making more money than you ever imagined. What it comes down to is buying shares of companies only when the numbers鈥攁nd the intangibles鈥攁re on your side. If that sounds too good to be true, it鈥檚 because the mind-set I鈥檒l be introducing you to leads not to bets but to certainties. Believe me, if there were anything genius-level about this, I鈥檇 still be a river guide collecting unemployment much of the year. Part of the secret is thinking of yourself as a business owner rather than a stock investor. Part is taking advantage of today鈥檚 new Internet tools, which drastically reduce the 鈥渉omework factor.鈥 (We鈥檙e talking a few minutes, tops.) Part is knowing the only five numbers that really count in valuing a potential investment. And part鈥攎aybe the most important part鈥攊s using the risk-free Rule #1 approach to consistently pay a mere 50 cents to buy a dollar鈥檚 worth of a business. What I won鈥檛 waste your time with is fluff: a lot of vague parables reminding you of what you already know and leaving you exactly where you started. This is the real deal, folks: a start-to-finish, one-baby-step-at-a-time approach that will allow you to retire ten years sooner than you planned, with more creature comforts than you ever imagined.
