Investing legend Warren Buffett once said that “success ininvesting doesn’t correlate with I.Q. once you’re abovethe level of 125. Once you have ordinary intelligence, what youneed is the temperament to control the urges that get other peopleinto trouble in investing.”

In an attempt to understand exactly what kind of temperamentBuffett was talking about, Ronald W. Chan interviewed 12value-investing legends from around the world, learning how theirpersonal background, culture, and life experiences have shapedtheir investment mindset and strategy.

All of these men became strong advocates of the approachdespite considerable age and cultural differences. Chan finds outwhy.
