When I see memos from Howard Marks in my mail, they're the first thing I open and read. I always learn something, and that goes double for his book. -- Praise for The Most Important Thing, Warren Buffett, Chairman and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway If you take an exceptional talent and have them obsess about value investing for several decades--including deep thinking about its very essence with written analysis along the way-- you may come up with a book as useful to value investors as this one. But don't count on it. -- Praise for The Most Important Thing, Jeremy Grantham, Cofounder and Chief Investment Strategist, Grantham Mayo Van Otterloo A clear and expert resource for all investors. -- Praise for The Most Important Thing Kirkus Reviews Veteran value-investing manager Howard Marks draws on pithy memos he wrote to clients over the years to dispense insightful advice on everything from risk taking to the role of luck. -- Praise for The Most Important Thing Money Magazine The original is great, but if you're willing to spend a bit more money (eBook is $9.99), this new version does have a little more meat to it. My Money Blog I recommend this book to all who aspire after value investing. Aleph Blog / Money Science This new edition does the nearly impossible; it takes an already classic text and makes it an even more indispensable tool for investors! Ultimately The Most Important Thing Illuminated: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor is an outstanding read. I'll be referring back to it often. I'd say it's a must-have for every value investor. Seeking Alpha Enlightening and well detailed. Midwest Book Review This is a book I recommend you keep on your desk -- Charles Sizemore Moneybuilder Marks' The Most Important Thing distilled the investing insight of his celebrated client memos into a single volume and, for the first time, made his time-tested philosophy available to general readers. In this edition, Marks's wisdome is joined by the comments, insights, and counterpoints of four renowned investors. Value Walk Blog

This book can save you from yourself when investing 17. Februar 2013
Von Andy Wallace - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Each year, there are hundreds of books written on the subject of stock market investing. Most of them are not worth the investment of one's time or money. Every once in a while, a new classic hits the market. This book is one of those new classics on investment writing.
Howard Marks, Chairman of Oaktree Capital Management, writes clearly and persuasively about the importance of risk avoidance when investing in stocks. He emphatically states his belief that risk avoidance by buying at a good value is the key to success. He then spends the rest of the book telling the reader the 18 most important things to consider when buying stocks. His discussion of investor psychology is worth the price of the book by itself. Everything else is a bonus.
I had been meaning to read this book for a year or so. When I learned that an annotated edition, with comments from some leading value investors, I grabbed it. I took my time reading it, as there is so much great information within. The final chapter, in which Marks pulls all 18 important things together, is now something I intend to re-read several times a year, like I do with Chapters 8 and 20 of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor.
Highly recommended.

A Classic Made Even Better 12. April 2012
Von Richard M. Rockwood - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to say I was very excited to learn that this new edition was going to be released as I found the first edition of his book to be a seminal investing work, one that deserves to be on the same shelf as The Intelligent Investor, Security Analysis, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, and the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters.

I was not disappointed when I read my review copy. I found that the annotated comments highlighted important sections in the text while also providing additional compelling perspectives but yet didn't get in the way of the flow of the book.

Don't just take my word on this, here are a few examples:

p. 58: Howard Marks: Understanding uncertainly: Dimson's formulation reminds us of a very simple concept: that many things are possible in the future. We can't know which of the possibilities will occur, and this uncertainty contributes to the challenge of investing. "Single scenario" investors ignore this fact, oversimplify the task, and need fortuitous outcomes to produce good results.

p. 104: Seth Klarman: Even the best investors judge themselves on the basis of return. It would be hard to evaluate yourself on risk, since risk cannot be measured. Apparently, the risk-averse managers of this endowment were disappointed with their relative returns even though their risk adjusted performance was likely excellent, as borne out by their performance over the following three years. This highlights just how hard it is to maintain conviction over the long run when short-term performance is considered poor.

Please allow me to make one additional comment on the annotations before I discuss the new chapter. I was not familiar with Mr. Johnson before reading his collection of annotations in the book but I found them insightful and thought provoking. I wish my college career had included being a student in his classes. You can find more information on him at this site: [...].

The new chapter is called Reasonable Expectations. This chapter develops the theme that investors need to keep their expectations grounded in reality to guard themselves from overreaching and thus taking on far more risk than is reasonable. Mr. Marks cautions his readers that one can never know when the exact right time to make a purchase is. Focus on buying it when its trading at below your estimate of value with the understanding that if its gets cheaper you will buy more as the price declines. The point is not to become despondent if a stock declines after your purchase it because being able to catch the absolute button is nearly impossible.

Here is a quote from this chapter in which Mr. Marks is telling his readers how an investor should have been thinking in the dark period of 2007-2009:

"I need 8 percent. I'd be glad to earn 10 percent instead. Twelve percent would be even better. But I won't try for more than that, because doing so would entail risks I'm just not willing to bear. I don't need 20 percent."

I find that comment particularly interesting when you consider that Mr. Buffett has spoken on the record many times that he looks for investments that can earn him 15%.

In conclusion I certainly think the chapter is a valuable addition to the book. This new material, along with the added annotations, make the new edition a worthwhile purchase. All in all this new edition does the nearly impossible, it takes an already classic text and makes it an even more indispensable tool for investors!

Great Book - annoying commentaries 10. April 2014
Von kc - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Howard Marks is one of the great investment thinkers. This book provides tremendous insight into the nature of risk and return. For example, higher prices mean both lower expected returns and higher risk (which is counter to Modern Portfolio theory).

Unfortunately, I found the comments in the "illuminated" version distracting. There were some insightful comments (mostly from Marks himself) but they were inserted into the middle of the chapters. I would prefer to have the comments at the end so I could keep my stream of thought.

I would probably recommend the un-illuminated version.

Little value added to the original 26. März 2013
Von Mtrush - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I've read all of Howard Marks' memos as well as the original "The most important thing illuminated" book and consider them to be outstanding gems of financial management. This version adds comments from other outstanding investors. However, it otherwise appears to be identical to the original version. If you can borrow this book from the library then by all means get the book and read those comments. I'd not recommend buying it though if you have already read the original version.

Very well done 10. Februar 2014
Von Buck Lansford - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I accidentally bought both the "Illuminated" version and the original, and have to say the Illuminated version is much better. I like the comments of the well-known investors who added on their "take" on Marks' original work. Every chapter has something very worthwhile to add to your knowledge base as a learning investor.
