Why you should read The Billion Dollar Mistake
You might expect that legendary billionaire investors like Kirk Kerkorian, Aubrey McClendon and Nick Maounis would not make the same mental mistakes as a weekend investor. But they do. These investment geniuses, among the world’s smartest – and richest – investors, have lost billions of dollars through boneheaded stock picks. Author Stephen L. Weiss reviews a stack of big investment blunders by these and other renowned financial wizards. Weiss’s vast Wall Street experience backs up his analysis, but you’ll have to decide if he’s correct that people learn more from their mistakes than their achievements. getAbstract thinks you’ll enjoy his instructive saga of investment woes.
