Description of this Book

Investing is a difficult and humbling experience. From the amateur investor all the way up to Warren Buffett, there will be bumps and bruises along the way. The book details the failures experienced from some of the greatest investors of all-time and applies the lessons they learned. Broken into chapters, the book will include mistakes by the likes of Warren Buffett, Bill Ackman, John Paulson, Joel Greenblatt, Seth Klarman, Jesse Livermore, Chris Sacca, Mark Twain, John Maynard Keynes, Paul Tudor Jones, David Einhorn, Cliff Asness, and Bill Miller. A research-heavy book, the book will outline the lows of the greatest investors, and provide ample feedback that in investing, there are no shortcuts; anyone who can get rich quickly can also get poor quickly.
