The Intuitive Investor was a Book of the Year finalist as named by the folks at ForeWord Reviews in the Business and Economics category! The book was chosen from amongst 350 publishers submitting 1400 entries. - 5-Star Amazon.com review by Philip Etienne (an alias), an experienced hedge fund manager: A Must Read For All Investors, Whether Brand-New Or Experienced. Let me just begin by saying that I have read many many books on investing and this is the first that has inspired me to write a review...Every now and then a book arrives that forever shifts the way we think about the world, potentially changing the way we analyze the accelerated influences that effect valuation. Taken to heart and put into practice, this is just such a rare piece of work. Timely and thought-provoking, The Intuitive Investor captivates the reader looking to improve his analytic process. I dont want to muddy Jason's writing and process by summarizing because it would not do justice to his overall message. That said, I have worked on Wall Street for almost 20 years and this book has blazed a new trail. It will help money managers of today and tomorrow better understand stock market dynamics through creative decision matrices. A huge improvement when compared to the dated valuation metrics/mean reversion models that were easily used by Buffett/Lynch/Vinick during the secular bull market...Voss has assembled a stunning wealth of new information and emerging ideas to help us visualize different and imaginative pathways to utilize right brain thought to capitalize on equity investing in the new market paradigm. He provides a concise and profound framework for making sense of the blizzard of catalysts that effect investment decisions on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis. Hyperbole aside, Voss has accomplished an extraordinary achievement. Simply put, read this! - 5-Star Amazon.com review by Patricia Aburdene, world renowned futurist: The Last Frontier. Intuitive Investing is the last frontier, the final skill set you need to invest with heart and head, knowledge and intuition -- that is, with both sides of your brain. Voss is a fine writer, a great teacher and an even better storyteller! You'll learn and have fun with this good read. Oh yeah, do you want to make money, too? Perfect. By the way, if you think this book is all about feeling and not about facts and figures, too, you're wrong. It's about mastering both. AND addressing investment's worst bugaboo: FEAR. After reading Intuitive Investing I found the courage to follow my intuition and press the buy button while the bears were growling away. I am very happy I did. - 5-Star Amazon.com review by Travis J. Ahlstrom, Junior Partner of Tri-Gen Investments, LLP: An original exploration of important yet under-emphasized aspects of successful investing. I finished The Intuitive Investor last week (at least the first read). There were many aspects of the book that I really enjoyed. Overall, I found the writing, reasoning and organization of the book to be exceptional and convincing. It was an inspiring journey, and a lot of the content has been on my mind on a daily basis since starting and finishing the book...
The frameworks Jason Voss provides and the nuanced distinctions that he points out do a great job of outlining the material's application to the investment process. In addition, so much of the content is also relevant beyond investment decisions, for me namely intuition (fear vs. anxiety, truth, using the right brain) and meditation. So, there were many dimensions to the book's impact on me, and I look forward to exploring the content more fully.
