See guys this book is for those who have had a lot of Thier skin in the game of stock market and thought of creating wealth from it.
First level of investor is the one who knows money can be made in the mkt, but doesn't know how and starts to trade without any knowledge.
Second level investor have made profit or loss on his capital and starts to find out where did he has gone wrong and starts learning about some basic concepts such as PE ratio.
Third level of investor starts finding value in whatever the scrip he has been following and starts finding justification that it is costly or cheap and buy or sell them.
Fourth level investor follows and checks if the price have gone up or not very often and loses faith if it doesn't go up after he bought it, and if price doesn't go up he sells it and looks for another one.in a short span of months. Again goes back to drawing board and finds what went wrong.
Then come the whole talk of buffetology and starts to find companies like that and invest in them if he felt that it was cheap.
But everyone forgets that buffet is buffet because of his principles and patience which helped him in compounding for very long time such as 70-80 years which very few do it. That's when actually psychology matters and thats what Morgan tries to tell us in this book that more that analysis of the scrip, conviction that you calculated and the patience to hold it at least for several decades remains intact only then the wealth would be created or else you would be just a person among a crowd doing nothing but ordinary things in life. And explains that the world is actually big and we are just a blip in it. It gives us all a great humility and convinces us to be humble and show gratitude to others.
