Charlie Munger: The Complete Investor

By Trenholme J Griffin, Charles T Munger, Tren Griffin

Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway's visionary vice chairman and Warren Buffett's indispensable financial partner, has outperformed market indexes again and again, and he believes any investor can do the same. His notion of "elementary, worldly wisdom"--a set of interdisciplinary mental models involving economics, business, psychology, ethics, and management--allows him to keep his emotions out of his investments and avoid the common pitfalls of bad judgment.

Munger's system has steered his investments for forty years and has guided generations of successful investors. This book presents the essential steps of Munger's investing strategy, condensed here for the first time from interviews, speeches, writings, and shareholder letters, and paired with commentary from fund managers, value investors, and business-case historians. Derived from Ben Graham's value-investing system, Munger's approach is straightforward enough that ordinary investors can apply it to their portfolios. This book is not simply about investing. It is about cultivating mental models for your whole life, but especially for your investments.


What if I told you that the world's greatest living investor was also one of the most prolific writers and thinkers on the subject? And what if there were a single book containing all of his most insightful comments in a highly focused series of lessons, anecdotes, and instructions for success? I'm happy to tell you that, in Tren Griffin's Charlie Munger, that book has finally arrived.

--Joshua M. Brown, CEO, Ritholtz Wealth Management, author of Backstage Wall Street

Tren Griffin is better than anyone at explaining the most important ideas from the best and brightest minds in business and investing in a way that people can easily understand them. This book on Charlie Munger's mental models is overflowing with wisdom. Readers will receive a master's degree in decision-making, investing, human psychology and much more. This is the definitive book on Warren Buffet's business partner.--Ben Carlson, author, "A" "Wealth of Common Sense: Why Simplicity Trumps Complexity in Any Investment Plan "

Charlie Munger is, arguably, the world's best investor. Charlie's 'worldly wisdom'--a latticework of understanding separate disciplines--is a powerful way to achieve superior investment results. Without it, success in the market--or anywhere else--is a short-lived fluke.--Robert Hagstrom, Author of "The Warren Buffett Way" and "Investing: The Last Liberal Art"
