Does Dhando Investor go into methods of finding value or is it just a rehash Buffet style trading. Its easy to say go do this or that, but without some detail some of these books seem repetitive. What would you recommend as a way to find stocks that are undervalued?

Thanks

I always joke with my buddy Dave that a sure fire way to make $$$millions$$$ on the stock market is to write a book about making millions on the market. Whenever I do get a book I get it from the library as I refuse to fund these guys on their ventures. Many of them write books because they couldn't make money on Wall Street.

The economics of book writings are such that, author hardly makes any money on books. Unless you are a star like Clinton or a very popular writer like J.K Rowling, you don't make much money on books.
If a book sells for 20 the author may be lucky if he gets a royalty of 2 bucks.
