Here's what others have said about the book, and about Benj:

  • Beyond doubt, the absolute best book on value investing ever from a Canadian viewpoint. ... It pushes new boundaries to the max.
    — Kenneth L. Fisher, CEO of Fisher Investments (a $12 billion investment fund) and a Forbes columnist since 1984
  • Benj is an active investor with a proven stock market strategy and profitable results. ... Although he packs his writing with hard facts and data, he conveys details in an entertaining manner.
    — Dale Ennis, Publisher, Canadian MoneySaver Magazine
  • The most classic of contrarians.
    The Globe and Mail
  • If all the world's a stage, then Benj Gallander is one of the stock market's greatest characters.
