You Can Be A Stock Market Genius by Joel Greenblatt Book Review
You Can Be A Stock Market Genius was written by Joel Greenblatt the founder of Gotham Capital and a professor at the Columbia University Graduate School of Management. Joel literally wrote the book on (and teaches the subject of) special situations. Special situations are the lucrative back-waters of value investing and covers topics relating to merger arbitrage, spin-offs, rights-offerings, recapitalizations, equity stubs, LEAPS, warrants and so much more.
This book is really a portal into the world of the esoteric investment strategies that professional value investors use to drive wealth creation. Joel writes in a very friendly and easy to read voice, and the information comes at you in a progressive manner that is digestible. This book is a must read, and Joel, I owe you a bunch of money for putting this book out into the world, so thanks!
