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.
"I sought out Philip Fisher after reading his Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits. When I met him, I was as impressed by the man as by his ideas. 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 Michaels, Editor, Forbes
"Very thorough, but not for the dilettante."
