A Profitable Read

My gift comes via Investing Guy and a piece he posted by Michael Lewis. The piece, "The Evolution of an Investor," is long but is written by one of my favorite writers, Michael Lewis. It is worth copying and giving to friends. It is worth reading slowly and more than once.

It will test the beliefs of many investors. I recommend it especially to many of the younger investors/bloggers out there who feel they can beat the market. I believe it is always important to challenge one's beliefs. This article will do that for many.

Happy Holidays!


  1. I read this article several years ago. A very enlightening story.

  2. My gosh, reading through the beginning of that article made my stomach churn. This is why I don't trust other people with managing my money.

    My brother worked for DFA for awhile and he really believed in their process/products. He ended up changing careers but he really respected DFA in general.
