Howard Marks has a new book coming out according to his latest memo, which can be found in the resources section in the right hand margin. But, I knew that already because I am scheduled to review the book for the Finance Professional’s Post (http://post.nyssa.org/), a digital publication of the New York Society of Security Analysts. I am just waiting to receive my reviewer’s copy from the publisher, but I have already pre-ordered it on Amazon.com. It has been added to the bookstore above and Amazon preorders are usually delivered on the day the book is available in bookstores.
I’ve been asked why there weren’t any memos during the twelve weeks between September 9 and December 1. Lack of ideas? Writer’s block? Carpal tunnel syndrome? CIA posting? The answer is “none of the above.” I was putting the finishing touches on a book, The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor. It pulls together all of the strands of my philosophy into what might be thought of as a super-memo. It will be published in late April and I hope you’ll let me know what you think.
