HBCU Money™ Business Book Feature – The Art of Strategy: A Game Theorist’s Guide to Success in Business and Life


414QPLFqw-L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

“I am hard pressed to think of another book that can match the combination of practical insights and reading enjoyment.”—Steven Levitt
Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It’s the art of anticipating your opponent’s next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world. Using a diverse array of rich case studies—from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history—the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery.

1215_warren-buffetts-next-door-schifrin_280x340

A practical guide for investors who are ready to take financial matters into their own hands

The Warren Buffetts Next Door profiles previously unknown investors, with legendary performance records, who are proving every day that you don’t need to work for a hedge fund or have an Ivy League diploma to consistently beat the best performing Wall Street professionals.

These amazing individuals come from all walks of life, from a globe drifting college dropout and a retired disc jockey to a computer room geek and a truck driver. Their methods vary from technical trading and global macro-economic analysis to deep value investing. The glue that holds them together is their passion for investing and their ability to efficiently harness the Internet for critical investment ideas, research, and trading skills.

  • The author digs deep to find the best of the best, even finding those who are making money during these turbulent times
  • Contains case studies that will explain to you how these great individual investors find and profit from stocks and options.
  • Shows you how to rely on your own instincts and knowledge when making important investment decisions

In an era when the best professional advice has cracked many investor nest eggs and Madoff-style frauds have shattered investor trusts, the self-empowered investors found in The Warren Buffetts Next Door offer an inspiring and educational tale.
