Fisher "Forbes" columnist Widely respected and admired, Philip Fisher is among the most influential investors of all time. His investment philosophies, introduced almost forty years ago, are not only studied and applied by today's finance professionals, but are also regarded by many as gospel.

A thorough understanding of the business, obtained by using Phil's techniques...enables one to make intelligent investment commitments." --Warren Buffett "Little known to the public, rarely interviewed and accepting few clients, Philip Fisher is nevertheless read and studied by most thoughtful investment professionals . . . everyone will profit from pondering--as Warren Buffett has done--the investment principles Fisher espouses." --James W. Michaels Editor, "Forbes" "My own copy [of "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits"] has underlinings and marginal thoughts throughout." --John Train author of "Dance of the Money Bees"
