Finally, robust empirical evidence on an idea

As an investor, I've tried to remain open minded about different philosophies and methodologies, but it's hard to give an idea any time when it doesn't come with a firm foundation of research and testing.

While the strategies in this book are fairly simple and may not be as high-flying as some momentum traders might want, the concepts do provide a reasonable foundation for a low-effort method of systematically buying stocks which can "beat the market" on either the upside or downside, and sometimes both.

Good read, would recommend it among your investment collection.

Interesing perspective

Difficult to understand tge content being so ricj of number. It would really need a pdf companion with table that instead is not provided with the audiobook like has been dobe for other audiobooks. Thats a real pity. You risk to not understand the essence of the book.
