Summary Description

In the course of his long career in finance, first at Credit Suisse First Boston and then as chief investment strategist at Legg Mason Capital Management, Michael J. Mauboussin developed a unique cross-disciplinary approach to understanding investment success. As an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School, he teaches that there are four major factors underlying modern investors’ decisions:

  1. Their philosophy of investing;
  2. Their psychology of investing;
  3. Their understanding of the roles of innovation and competitive strategy; and
  4. Their knowledge of the implications of science and complexity theory for investing.

In his new book, More Than You Know: Finding Financial Wisdom in Unconventional PlacesMauboussin delves more deeply into these factors with a broad multi-disciplinary approach, and provides insights that can make you a better investor and executive.

More Than You Know was selected as the “Best Investment Book of 2006” by the management journal Strategy+Business. It has been critically acclaimed by such experts as Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, the author ofThe Innovator’s Dilemma, who calls More Than You Know “a conceptually brilliant, highly practical book that every investor and analyst needs to read – several times. Mauboussin has no peers; he understands how value is created better than anyone, anywhere.”
