Back cover copy
"You will find lots of jewels in these pages that may do as much for you as they have for me."
-- from the Introduction by Kenneth L. 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. He recorded these philosophies in Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits, a book considered invaluable reading when it was first published in 1958, and a must-read today.
