These days, when CNBC's David Faber talks, Wall Street listens. Unlike the talking heads that populate the financial news channels, Faber is a down-and-dirty investigative reporter. For six years, on CNBC's popular Squawk Box and in his own segments, Faber has broken story after story. Each day over one million people tune in to hear his daily report. Those who know the score know that Faber is the one to listen to -- especially now that the market isn't doing as well as it used to.
Now Faber has written the smartest, most innovative investment book to be published in years. Like Harvard Business School's famous case study method, each chapter is built around a story -- the story of how a stock was presented to the public. Then Faber extracts clear, easy-to-follow lessons and instructions on how readers can learn the stocks real story, just as he does everyday on CNBC. Readers learn not just how to pick the stocks they want to invest in, but how to avoid joining the "penguins" lining up for big losses. The Faber Report combines practical, down to earth investment advice with wild accounts of investor fraud, company misdeeds, and famous investors and banks that have led investors astray. A quantum leap beyond the usual investment books, The Faber Report is essential reading for anyone who wants to profit-bulls or bears.
