Review The Little Book That Still Beats the Market
by JOEL GREENBLATT and ANDREW TOBIAS
As a sequel to the originally published book The Little Book that Beats the Market, this edition expounds on the data and analyses stated in the first edition. If the original book stated how an average investor could beat the popular market averages by systematically applying a formula, the second edition expounds on recent research regarding the original data with an analysis of the current market conditions after the 2008 financial crisis.
Among the great advantages of the book is that it is short and easy to read, aside from being a sequel to an investment classic. It clearly expounds on the data the author obtained years ago, during the time the first edition was published. It shows the backtesting of many investment strategies that date back to the 1980s finance industry. Then the book expounds on the modern market conditions and how the 2008 financial crisis had affected the global economy and what impact it brought to investing.
The book focuses on active investing, but it is just as resourceful and efficient for those who practice passive investing. This second edition proves that it is another important addition to the books on finance and investment, much like its first edition.
