I've heard it's good, but never did read it.

The book that influenced my investing the most was this one:

What is the nutshell on this book Patrick?

Basically this: Use your personal experience with the products and their popularity to pick stocks that are likely to do well.

Peter Lynch is also a fundamentalist: look at the p/e, peg ratio, and debt, etc.

Yes, more than 30 years ago. It was a required reading in one of my finance classes.
Brilliant book. Highly recommend it. The insight you gain will make a positive difference on your investment thinking for ever.

Thanks Strat. I did read it and agree with you, and it is easily back tested. The only questionable part in my mind is whether or not the stock market is currently overvalued. I think it is.

I also like the idea of using emerging market index funds, the two that look most interesting to me are India and Nigeria.

BTW it has been updated and now is in it's 11th edition
