An absolute knockout. Full of sound points and simple investment strategies, all backed up with solid evidence. Particularly amusing and interesting is Dreman's devastating deconstruction of the 'Efficient' Market Hypothesis. I find myself quoting this book frequently.

It sounds trite, but this is one of the best investment books I have read in a long time. David Dremen presents a well researched, intelligent defense of contrarian strategies. The insights regarding bonds and small caps were particularly helpful and offered a fresh perspective on the usual assumptions regarding these investment options.
While the books length may seem daunting, I was actually sorry to reach the end. If only more of the investment writing available were as well thought out as this book.

The content of this book is very good - David Dreman's strategies are very good and very well researched. However, the author's very heavy and laboured writing make this a tough read - I've read a lot of investment type books and this was the worst in that respect. In addition, Dreman seems to have quite an ego - he spends much of the book dismissing others' market theories - and while he may be correct he does it in quite a personal and almost obsessive way.

I'm willing to bet that more pages have been written ABOUT this book and its predecessor than Dreman wrote IN them. But, for what it's worth, here's my one pen'orth.
Having waded through Damodaran's 'Little Book of Valuation', I rapidly came to the conclusion that there must be a simpler way. Well, here it is.
The method is predicated on the assumption that for superbeings, living in Omaha Nebraska, stock picking based on intrinsic valuation may be the way to go, but for the rest of the investor universe we might like to try Price to Earnings, Price to Book Value, Price to Cash Flow or Dividend Yield.
Yes, it really is that simples, only....
You must leave your stocks well alone until they grow. Sage advice whether you live in Nebraska or Barnsley.

I have to admit this is one of the most boring book I have ever read and I took more than 2 months (stopped and start again). Still I have given 5 star rating for this book because it has lot of gems. It covers larger areas, giving very big picture of stock market as a whole.
1. It covers the basis contrarian strategies (low PE, Low P/BV, Low P/CF and high dividend yield)
2. Why EMH, Modern portfolio theory etc don't work
3. Crowd psychology
4. Psychology of investment
5. Myths about IPO
6. Bubbles, Depressions and various market conditions
7. Most of his studies/rules are backed by statistics.
I can go on and on.
I am not sure whether contrarian investment can give you guaranteed success but it is one of the most important value investment strategies. If you have patience possibly you might appreciate it
