Customer Review at ChaptersIndigo.ca – Once you start reading its very hard to put down. I read the whole book in one sitting. Gives a lot of interesting financial information and at the same time a very neat story about Mal’s motorcycle tour. I don’t want to spoil it, so you’ll have to read it yourself. Whether you’re looking for investing advice or just a motorcycle adventure , you won’t be disappointed.
A note from Jim Rogers:
Comment from a Professional Portfolio Manager: I think that this is a must read for every portfolio manager everywhere. It highlights the two most important principles for long-term successful portfolio (investment) management. Which are 1) Dogmatism leads to doggieness, and 2) how to be a contrarian.
Malvin Spooner is a widely-known veteran money manager, President of Sienna Capital Management Inc., and was founder and CEO of the former award-winning mutual fund company Mavrix Fund Management Inc. Mal’s previous book published by Insomniac Press — Resources Rock: How to Invest in the Next Global Boom in Natural Resources which he authored with Pamela Clark — predicted the resources boom back in early 2004. More recently he published A Maverick Investor’s Guidebook which blends his experience touring across the heartland in the United States with insightful advice about investing. The book is designed to be an easy read but will help readers learn to think and invest like a professional would. He has been quoted and published for over twenty years in business journals, newspapers and has been featured on many television programs over his career. An avid motorcycle enthusiast, and known across Canada as a part-time musician performing rock ‘n’ roll for charity, Mal is known for his candor and non-traditional (‘maverick’) thinking when discussing financial markets.
