THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO HISTORY'S GREATEST EVER INVESTORS

There's never been a better time to be an ordinary investor. With more opportunities, lower costs and a more level playing field than ever before, the individual really can go head to head with the professionals. But there remains one big difference between Wall Street (or the Square Mile) and the individual investor: technique and experience.

Superinvestors provides both in a new way. Based on MoneyWeek’s popular 'Great Investors in History' column, it takes an in-depth look at 20 of the best investors in the last 200 years and shows the reader how to copy them.

These investors have been picked for a variety of criteria, including their investing excellence, the different ways in which they made money - and, above all, for what they can teach individual investors. Investors representing a wide range of investment styles are included, ranging from David Ricardo, who made a fortune by correctly predicting the outcome of the Battle of Waterloo, to the patient value-orientated approach of Warren Buffett. The book also looks at some of the innovators, including John Bogle's development of index funds as a low-cost way of getting exposure to the market and David Harding's data-driven approach that aims to avoid human emotion.

The book then looks at each of the investors' careers in depth. This includes their background, the strategies that they used to beat their peers and an honest evaluation of their success, using a special star ranking system. Naturally, the main focus is on their best investments. However, sometimes failures can be extremely instructive - and the book looks at those investments that didn't quite go to plan. Finally, each chapter concludes by detailing the lessons that ordinary investors can learn from them.

Superinvestors is a treasure trove of success stories, cautionary tales, legendary stock picks and world-beating strategies that will fascinate and inspire investors of every level.
