Description

What happens when a young Wall Street investment banker spends a small fortune to have lunch with Warren Buffett? He becomes a real value investor. In this fascinating inside story, Guy Spier details his career from Harvard MBA to hedge fund manager. But the path was not so straightforward. Spier reveals his transformation from a Gordon Gekko wannabe, driven by greed, to a sophisticated investor who enjoys success without selling his soul to the highest bidder. Spier's journey is similar to the thousands that flock to Wall Street every year with their shiny new diplomas, aiming to be King of Wall Street. Yet what Guy realized just in the nick of time was that the King really lived 1,500 miles away in Omaha, Nebraska. Spier determinedly set out to create a new career in his own way. Along the way he learned some powerful lessons which include: why the right mentors and partners are critical to long term success on Wall Street; why a topnotch education can sometimes get in the way of your success; that real learning doesn't begin until you are on your own; and how the best lessons from Warren Buffett have less to do with investing and more to do with being true to yourself. Spier also reveals some of his own winning investment strategies, detailing deals that were winners but also what he learned from deals that went south. Part memoir, part Wall Street advice, and part how-to, Guy Spier takes readers on a ride through Wall Street but more importantly provides those that want to take a different path with the insight, guidance, and inspiration they need to carve out their own definition of success.

Malk Williams does a superb job.

What does Malk Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am the author of the book. I had originally wanted to narrate the book myself - to make it more authentic. But I was unable to find the time and Malk Williams stepped up to do it.

I think that he has done an absolutely phenomenal job. He has a clear and sonorous voice that is faithful to meaning of the text and is far more pleasurable to listen to than my voice would have been.

Great bio and life philoshophy

This book is more of a personal bio and explanation of a philosophy on life rather than an investment tome. As such it was thoroughly enjoyable. Very candid and personal account

Great book about becoming a good investor

If you could sum up The Education of a Value Investor in three words, what would they be?

Find your way

What did you like best about this story?

Guy Spier didn't provide a technical how-to on how to analyze stocks, but that can be found elsewhere. What he did was enlighten me regarding the mindset an investor should have. I really enjoyed that a lot.

Which character – as performed by Malk Williams – was your favorite?

Beautifully narrated by Malk Williams. Did a great job narrating from Guy's view, and also did a fun Warren Buffet impersonation.

What did you learn from The Education of a Value Investor that you would use in your daily life?

Find a way to invest that suits me. In anything from trading frequency and using a checklist to office furnituring.

I will save you time - Go read about Buffett

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No, I would would just give them the spark notes.

Warren Buffett is wicked smart, and try to copy him as much as possible to be successful.

Hang around with successful people because they will make you better.

Write people letters. No one does this anymore so when people receive letters it means a lot to them and can have huge longterm impacts.

Wall street can be distracting. Create your own perfect environment.

What did you like best about this story?

He talks about writing personal letters to people. All kinds of people about all kinds of things. I thought this was interesting and I am trying it myself.

What about Malk Williams’s performance did you like?

British accent is on point.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

See above.

Any additional comments?

Most of the book is him talking about how smart Mohnish Pabrai and Warren Buffett are. So you might as well go read their books and learn about them because that is pretty much what he is telling you to do.

Great book and great story

What made the experience of listening to The Education of a Value Investor the most enjoyable?

The way speaker narrates about Guy Spier's story is very enjoyable. After started listening, I could not stop and finished in two instances. One thing I really liked is his analysis of himself and admitting his fears and idiosyncrasies. I think understanding ones idiosyncrasies is very import to be a good investor.

Any additional comments?

One thing I like about the book is the emphasis Guy Spier places on improving oneself as person by becoming more authentic and willing to help others. I really think it is true. I have seen that many times myself. When you help somebody, the same person may not help but it always comes one way or the other.

best audible book to date

fantastic book with applicable ideas as well as a self reflective process on desires, personality, and goals. overall I would recommend and the narrator was also fantastic and I would like to listen to other books narrated by him. I very much would like to have lunch with Guy Spier just to talk more about wisdom and good conversation. Did I mention the book was great?

Recommended

It was a very nicely written book and the author really tries and to a good extent succeeds in delivering a nice balance between an interesting narrative and many good points for any investor. His humility about his flaws and the help he got from more senior investors was a very refreshing approach.
I found his strong advocacy pro ethical investing a great way to rethink the successful investor having an almost obligation to both support the "right" investments not only on a profit basis, and also help others and give back what was given to them in their path to knowledge and development.
However I must say I was left with a quite bitter taste when I contacted the author on LinkedIn to thank about his good book and connect and he never replied and rejected my connection invitation and ofcourse can't help myself rethinking his presentation of himself in the book as not genuine. But even if the author doesn't live by his preachings still good points raised and an investor profile I 'd like to see more of!

me, myself and I

It all about I, I , I. Doesn't bring anything new. We know you have values, but you don't give any analysis to Value Investment.

Selfhelp book for wannabee investors

Würden Sie The Education of a Value Investor Ihren Freunden empfehlen? Warum oder warum nicht?

Always interesting to hear about value investing and Spier captures the essence well. What is more difficult to bear is the self-help journey he shares with us. Spiers, get a life and stop living other people's lives. The book is written as an account of personal growth of the writer, personally, this was on the border of the bearable in terms of self-help experience for me. Luckily it was short enough. I would recommend reading Lowenstein's book on Warren Buffett recommended by Spier or the latest Buffett biography, get the real stuff and not the instant coffee version.
