...and are not all spent out, then following on from last weekend's book recommendation and my post about the history of Black Friday and why I prefer Blue Monday's, I have a Black Friday weekend suggestion for you. This relates to the publishing house Harriman House which is having a half price offer running until Monday. See the highlighted link above which includes the Excess Returns book that I highlighted in my post last week, but now is even cheaper as I always like to try and bring you value. Other books on their list which might be of interest are:
Beyond the Zulu Principle - By Jim Slater - an updated version or maybe a rehash of his popular book. I've read it and it offers some quite sensible advice.
Free Capital - By Guy Thomas - about independent investors and how they got there, I've not read it, been there done that.
Quantitative Investing - By Fred Piard - looks potentially interesting but again I haven't read it as I'm already doing it.
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds - by Charles Mackay First published in 1841, it often cited as the best book ever written about market psychology. This Harriman House edition includes Charles Mackay's account of the three infamous financial manias - John Law's Mississipi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and Tulipomania. I've read it and it is on my recommended resources / reading list. But presumably everyone investing today remembers the .Com mania, don't they?
Investing with Anthony Bolton - by Jonathan Davis and Anthony Bolton - review of how one of the UK's best investors did it, he ran Fidelity Special situations if you don't know him and he was very good. I have read it and it is also quite useful.
You Say Tomayto - By Alastair Munday - a fund manager at Investec. His Temple Bar Trust has done well on the back of his contrarian team process. I've seen good reviews of the book but I've not read it. He was a peer of mine when I was working in the City and I'm surprised he's had the time to write a book. Reminds me perhaps I should get around to writing a book?
So with that in mind I'll sign off for now, have a great weekend enjoy a Black Sabbath below if that's your kind of thing, otherwise see you back here next week and hopefully we might get a Blue Monday to kick off December and start the much anticipated Santa Rally.
