Investilosophy: Investment Lessons Wrapped in a Story

Investilosophy, by Ofir Hirsh, is an adventure story where a businessman's meeting is cancelled and he heads to Hawaii--where he meets up with a group of traders who enjoy talking about investment strategy and philosophy.  The book is well written and moves at a fast pace.  In places, you'll feel like you are, in fact, on the island.  As you are caught up in the story, you'll find yourself comparing your investment philosophy with the ideas presented by the characters in the book - a useful exercise.

Like one reviewer said, I look forward to Ofir Hirsh's sequel as the adventure continues.  I give the book 5 stars on interest level and on creativity.


  1. The last investment 'thriller' I read was by Michael Lewis! Loved it! I'll be sure to check this out.
