"This book reads like a conversation with Vitaliy: deep,insightful, inquisitive, and civilized."
— Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of The Black Swan
"Thoroughly enjoyable . . for the thoughtful and oftenentertaining way in which it is delivered. . . Katsenelson takeshis reader step by step into the mind of the value investor byrelating, in a fictional addendum to Fiddler on the Roof, the storyof Tevye's purchase of Golde, the cow. He also describes his ownbig-time gambling evening (he was willing to lose a maximum of $40)and that of a half-drunken, rowdy fellow blackjack player to stressthe importance of process. He then moves on to the fundamentalprinciples of active value investing. What differentiates this bookfrom so many others on value investing is that it describes,sometimes through the use of case studies, the thinking of a valueinvestor. Not just his models or his metrics but his assessments.Katsenelson is an empiricist who weighs facts, looks forcontraindications, and makes decisions. He makes value investingcome alive. This may be a little book, but it's packed withinsights for both novices and experienced investors. And it is adelight to read."
