- The Motley Fool - “Katsenelson’s style is straightforward enough to keep a rookie investor engaged, and in-depth enough to retain the interest of old pros, which makes this a great book for those of all skill levels….Active Value Investing accomplishes the feat of being both a great introduction to value investing and a solid reference manual for experienced investors. I’m glad to have it in my collection and am sure I’ll refer to its QVG framework in reviewing my own investments in the future.”
- ColoradoBiz Magazine – Katsenelsonâ€™s book is targeted toward investment junkies, the “weekend warriors” who spend much of their free time researching their stocks and might heed such advice as “Donâ€™t step into the relative evaluation trap” or “Donâ€™t overpay for growth.” Itâ€™s not the kind of material youâ€™re going to be thumbing by your bedside if your style of investing is to just review your 401(k) reports.
- Geoff Gannon at Gannon on Investing - “Vitaliy Katsenelson’s “Active Value Investing” is one of the best investing books published in the last few years…. This book will teach you about our markets and their past. More importantly, it will teach you how to invest with an eye towards value at a time when a sound value orientation can do the most good. This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it.”
- Fred Fuld at Stockerblog.com – “This a great book which covers how to invest and trade in a ‘range-bound’ market… If you are looking for a quality, valuation, and growth approach to investing in a range-bound market, this is the book for you.”
- David Merkel at Alephblog.com – “It is a very good book on value investing… I like Vitaliy Katsenelsonâ€™s processes and can heartily recommend this book to my readers. His book is a fine addition to the world of value investing.”
- Canadian Capitalist - “I found Vitaliyâ€™s book to be an impressive, scholarly piece of work. The author is a money manager and teacher and it shows in the book.”
- Microcap Speculator – “I learned quite a bit from my first read of Active Value Investing, and will undoubtedly learn even more the second time around.”
- George at FatPitch Financials – I think there is a lot of substance to Active Value Investing. The first few chapters might turn off some (market history buffs might love it), but the second half of the book is a real gem. If you are new to the concept of value investing, you will learn a tremendous amount from the clear and instructive writing. Even if you are a seasoned value investor, you will find several unique concepts and new ways of looking at value investing.
