David Dreman's Contrarian Investment Strategy should occupy the 3rd place in the Hall of Investment Classics, which puts it only after Graham's Intelligent Investor and Fisher's Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits. The most important value of this book is Dreman's commitment into the treacherous water of "market irrationality", which both Graham and Fisher recognized, but neither made serious attempts to explain. "Rational market", as the basic assumption the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), is...more

Dremen's name is eponymous with successful contrarian investing and this book methodically shows why (along with the impressive records of the Kemper-Dremen funds).

Fallacies in investments. Psychological detrimental factors that prevent one from being a successful investor. All common sense but difficult to be executed.
Outstanding. Dreman cuts through the clutter of prevailing investment fads and delivers a solid approach to investing based on his experiences and careful statistical research. My only wish is that I had read his newl updated 2012 book, which seems to be receiving excellent reviews on Goodreads too.
Basically a book on value, buy and hold investing.
Excellent book on investing against the crowd.
