KNOWING WHICH BUSINESSES ARE EXTRAORDINARY IS THE EASIEST BIT. THE HARD PART IS BEING PATIENT.

Roger Montgomery in Value.Able manages to communicate and explain timeless value investing principles with absolute clarity and simplicity. He does by providing examples for every point that is made, boldfacing important points throughout the book and writing in plain english.
