The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor

by Howard Marks

Book Reviews

"The Most Important Thing is destined to become an investment classic -- it should easily earn its place on every thinking investor's bookshelf. Howard Marks has distilled years of investment wisdom into a short book that is lucid, entertaining, and ultimately profound."
-- Joel Greenblatt, Columbia Business School, Founder and Managing Partner of Gotham Capital

"If you take an exceptional talent and have them obsess about value investing for several decades -- including deep thinking about its very essence with written analysis along the way -- you may come up with a book as useful to value investors as this one -- but don't count on it."
-- Jeremy Grantham, Cofounder and Chief Investment Strategist, Grantham Mayo Van Otterloo

"Regular recipients of Howard Marks's investment memos eagerly await their arrival for the essential truths and unique insights they contain. Now the wisdom and experience of this great investor are available to all. The Most Important Thing, Marks's insightful investment philosophy and time-tested approach, is a must read for every investor."
-- Seth A. Klarman, President, The Baupost Group

"Few books on investing match the high standards set by Howard Marks in The Most Important Thing. It is wise, witty, and laced with historical perspective. If you seek to avoid the pitfalls of investing, you must read this book!"
-- John C. Bogle, Founder and former CEO, The Vanguard Group

"When I see memos from Howard Marks in my mail, they're the first thing I open and read. I always learn something, and that goes double for his book."
-- Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway
