"Alastair Mundy is one of the greatest contrarians. His new book provides an absolutely essential public service, reminding investors that just because something is popular doesn't make it right, sensible or even worth the price! Crucially this contrarian wisdom, rolled up in this excellent new book, comes with one big plus for the active investor - Alastair is no armchair contrarian as he's been putting his money where his mouth is for many years as a successful fund manager."
- David Stevenson, columnist for Investment Week and the Financial Times
"Any book about investment which can legitimately include Curly Wurlys, cricket, fondue sets and Warren Buffett has got to be worth a read. Mundy's book is witty, insightful and nicely punctures a lot the pomposity of fund managers while reminding us all quite important managing people's money properly is. I laughed continuously throughout but was nodding in agreement with a lot of the simple and sensible messages in these highly readable musings. This book should be read at the height of a bull market or the bottom of a bear market because common sense should always be in vogue but sadly isn't very often." --Lawrence Gosling, founding editor, Investment Week
"This is an excellent insight into the thoughts of one of the best investors in the UK, Alastair Mundy. Mundy cuts through the fog of investment double-speak to produce a genuinely interesting book about contrarian investing. This is an excellent book for those that wish to gain some insight into how to invest away from the crowd in a sensible, disciplined way and is written by an expert with the layman in mind."

"Alastair Mundy and his cohorts tirelessly challenge the conventions of the investment world and their contrarian approach has made their clients lots of money. Investors cannot afford to ignore his perspective. It works!" --Richard Romer-Lee, Managing Director of European Investment Consulting, Morningstar OBSR
"It has been my privilege to have worked with Alastair Mundy for more than a decade and hopefully many more years in the future. While many investors pay lip service to contrarian investing, he is the real deal. His results confirm this. He sees things differently but he also says it as it is. He communicates clearly in plain English as befits his combination of razor sharp mind and impressive modesty." --Hendrik du Toit, CEO, Investec Asset Management
