-Adam Smith continues to dazzle and sparkle! With the passage of time, Supermoney has, if anything, added to its power to inspire, arouse, provoke, motivate, inform, illuminate, entertain, and guide a whole new generation of readers, while marvelously reprising the global money show for earlier fans.- -David M. Darst, author of The Art of Asset Allocation Managing Director -Adam Smith continues to dazzle and sparkle! With the passage of time, Supermoney has, if anything, added to its power to inspire, arouse, provoke, motivate, inform, illuminate, entertain, and guide a whole new generation of readers, while marvelously reprising the global money show for earlier fans.- -David M. Darst, author of The Art of Asset Allocation Managing Director and Chief Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley Individual Investor Group -Nobody has written about the craft of money management with more insight, humor, and understanding than Adam Smith. Over the years, he has consistently separated wisdom from whimsy, brilliance from bluster, and character from chicanery.- -Byron R. Wien, coauthor of Soros on Soros Chief Investment Strategist, Pequot Capital Management Supermoney may be even more relevant today than when it was first published nearly twenty-five years ago. Written in the bright and funny style that became Adam Smith's trademark, this book gives a view inside institutions, professionals, and the nature of markets that has rarely been shown before or since. -Adam Smith- was the first to introduce an obscure fund manager in Omaha, Nebraska, named Warren Buffett. In this new edition, Smith provides a fresh perspective in an updated Preface that contextualizes the applicability of the markets of the 1960s and 1970s to today's markets. Things change, but sometimes the more they change, the more they stay the same.

    Adam Smith's writing style is stupendous. Get the book because it is hilarious, intelligent and so old and yet so relevant. Don't quite agree with his idea of Supermoney, but may be it was the times... the 60s in the US. The small bit about Buffett is worth reading over and over again. Another brilliant thing is a reflection of what the 60s and the early 70s were in the US. Wild and scary. (99) The pursuit of money questioned (173) onwards - praise for Graham and Buffett Pages after 250 also brilli Adam Smith's writing style is stupendous.

    OMAHA GIVES ME PERSPECTIVE Supermoney is capitalised income (option etc). From 1973 to 1974 the market fell 50%, back to the level of 1959. The final 2 years of the bubble (71&72) reflected a shifty from the go-go era (buy great companies and not sell them) to the nifty fifty. It was 35 years from 1929 to 1965 and it would be another 33 years before the next bubble would emerge. The average punter likes to have stocks rather than mutual funds so as he can watch the stock prices. He really enjoys OMAHA GIVES ME PERSPECTIVE Supermoney is capitalised income (option etc).

Penn Central was the 6th largest company in the US when it went broke in 1970. The first requisite for managing other peoples money is a sense of responsibility.

    I read about this book for the first time in Alice Shroeders's the Snowball and thought that if it is indeed the first book to ever mention Warren Buffet I should add it to my reading list to see what was said at the time. It turn out that this section is tiny. The story is mainly about a former trader who through various lessons in life has finally come to understand the dangers of speculation and the power of long term compounding. But the key takeaway for me was the highlight on caution and s I read about this book for the first time in Alice Shroeders's the Snowball and thought that if it is indeed the first book to ever mention Warren Buffet I should add it to my reading list to see what was said at the time. It turn out that this section is tiny. The story is mainly about a former trader who through various lessons in life has finally come to understand the dangers of speculation and the power of long term compounding. But the key takeaway for me was the highlight on caution and scepticism at all time: in other words even what looks like the safest swiss bank can fail. It's funny because I am a French expat working in trading and living in Switzerland and I could totally relate to what he was saying even 40 years later. In my opinion, his observations of the Swiss culture are spot on. I also believe like him that the protestant culture of industry and thrift, was at the root of capitalism.

    I heard good things about this book, but it didn't strike a cord with me. In it's day it was probably really good, however, I didn't like the style of writing and frequently got lost. Not sure if that was fully the writing or the topic or disinterest on my part or what. However, there was some good information in there, but it wasn't worth rummaging for in my opinion.
