The Rulemaker section (the second half of the book) is more quantitative, and thus, more to my liking. Something that I don't like - the book does not look at valuation, because the authors believe that a great company is worth owning at any price. I just don't subscribe to this perspective.

This book blows. I made it through the rule breakers section and couldn't continue. I'm prepare to believe that the Fools have written better books for the novice investor, but this one wasn't it. The investment philosophy they espouse seems to be "invest in companies which will make a lot of money". Alright. Thanks for the tip, guys.

Nice read but not so useful in any other way.

Companies can be loosely classified as potential rule breakers, until they die or become tweeners, at which time they either die or become rule makers.

Tells the difference between the steady blue chips and the real money makers which are the small stocks. Fun read
