Book Description
"Trading is notoriously tough. But Altucher's new book adds a noteworthy addition to the library on Warren Buffett. He shows a lot of Buffett that isn't readily available in the existing common literature. Definitely required reading for any serious Buffett buff."
—Kenneth L. Fisher, Forbes' "Portfolio Strategy" Columnist Founder and CEO, Fisher Investments

"Finally, someone blows apart the myth that Warren Buffett is a buy-and-hold investor. Altucher has given us an insightful and well-written commentary on how Buffett has amassed his track record, and what we can do to emulate him. He details the trade-by-trade examples. This is a must read for anyone wanting to learn about how the Master Investor works."
—John Mauldin, author, Bull's Eye Investing editor of Thoughts from the Frontline (www.2000wave.com)

While Warren Buffett is considered the "world's greatest value investor," there's another side to Buffett that is rarely talked about. Although Buffett has gained recognition for his value investing approach to the markets, the fact is that nobody—over the past fifty years—has traded and invested with a more diverse group of strategies than Buffett.

Trade Like Warren Buffett challenges the current coverage of this great investor by including details of all of Buffett's investing and trading methods, including mean reversion, commodities, bonds, arbitrage, market timing, funds, as well as Graham-Dodd. To augment the discussion of each strategy, Trade Like Warren Buffett also includes interviews with leading financial professionals, who reveal in detail how they've successfully used the same techniques.

There is no one way to sum up Warren Buffett's investment style. But if you're interested in boosting the performance of your portfolio, Trade Like Warren Buffett can show you how.

From the Inside Flap
Warren Buffett has had one of the longest and most successful investment careers of all time. While he's considered the "world's greatest value investor," there's another side to Buffett that is not very well known. Although Buffett has gained recognition for his value investing approach to the markets, the fact is that nobody—over the past fifty years—has traded and invested with a more diverse group of strategies than Buffett.

Given the fact that Buffett's investment career has spanned five decades and multiple styles and disciplines, is it possible to Trade Like Warren Buffett? It's impossible to trade exactly like Warren Buffett, but with author James Altucher as your guide, you'll come close.

Trade Like Warren Buffett challenges the current coverage of this great investor by including details of all of Buffett's investing and trading methods, including mean reversion, commodities, bonds, arbitrage, market timing, funds, as well as Graham-Dodd.

Altucher skillfully details Buffett's career and uncovers the paths that led to his success. You'll have a front row seat to the best that Buffett has to offer, including:

* The Early Years: Buffett's hedge fund years, when he built his fortune from essentially nothing to about $25 million
* The Middle Years: During the '70s and '80s, Buffett made the full transition from successful hedge fund manager to operator, asset allocator, and insurance company magnate
* The Later Years: During the '90s and '00s, there was a flight to safety from the dot-com bubble as well as a diversification into bonds, silver, fixed-income arbitrage, and ultimately, foreign currencies

There is no one way to sum up Warren Buffett's investment style. But if you're interested in boosting the performance of your portfolio, taking a page from Warren Buffett is the best way to start.
