This was a good overview of a number of investors and the tip of the iceberg of their strategies. When I say tip I really mean, eye drop. It reminds me a lot of the book market wizards by jack schwaggar which might actually be a better feel for the investor where this is a better contextual reference for the commonality between investors and the strategies they employ. Reading/Listening to both this lecture series and market Wizards helped give one a picture of what type of investor suites his personality. And there are numerous references to external resources that explain techniques and fundamental. Listen, you'll enjoy.

Where does The Art of Investing: Lessons from History's Greatest Traders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Probably in my top 3. I actually listened to all the chapters and really enjoyed the teaching from Professor John, M Longo.
What other book might you compare The Art of Investing: Lessons from History's Greatest Traders to and why?
I've only just begun learning about finance markets and investing and so there are not a lot of other books I've listened to, this was my third. The only comparable book for me that I will comment on is "The little book that beats the market" by Joel Greenblatt since Professor John, M Longo actually mentioned him at the end and that was humorous since I had just finished reading that book!
What does Professor John M. Longo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The experience was very similar to being in a classroom (obviously so for The Great Courses), yet one in which the teacher kept your attention the whole time. Clearly Professor Longo is very interested in the material and demonstrated a desire to represent each new investor in a unique and unbiased manner. I appreciated his teaching style which I felt allowed me to retain a great deal from each lecture as he carefully explained what was necessary for each topic/investor.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extremes, but listening was usually quite riveting since every new investor discussed presented a story in which I had no idea how the story would end and in which I new there would be key take-away's that would allow me to practically apply lessons learned as well as idea's I agreed with.
Any additional comments?
Lastly, the detailed PDF was one of, if not the best, outline I have used on audible for following along during the lectures or for reviewing after the lecture. The main points were organized and clearly laid out in a logical flow that helped me understand the key ideas at each point in the lecture. Fantastic job overall Professor,

Interesting bit, but would require a lot of googling to find out more about the covered stories - it is rather quick, brief guide through many biographies and general look on a trading logic from various successful investors perspectives
- I got an impression that one could earn more reading wiki.
