♥ Book Title : Walking the Kiso Road
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Step back into old Japan in this fascinating travelogue of the famous Kiso Road, an ancient route used by samurai and warlords, which remains much the same today as it did hundreds of years ago. Travel with William Scott Wilson, esteemed translator of samurai philosophy, along Japan's famous Kiso Road (Kisoji in Japanese), an ancient and historic route that runs from north to south through the Kiso Valley in the Japanese Alps. The road was officially established in 1602, but ancient records show that it has been in use since at least 701, probably by merchants and hunters. In the seventeenth century, the road was a route for the daimyo (warlords) to travel on their biennial trips--along with their samurai and porters--to the new capital of Edo (now Tokyo). The natural beauty of the route is renowned--and famously inspired a series of woodblock prints by the artist Hiroshige. Walking the Kiso Road is a window into old Japan, and Wilson shares its rich history and lore, literary and artistic significance, cuisine and architecture. Wilson is a delightful and expert guide. His storytelling ability; vast knowledge of Japanese history, literature, and culture; and warm and readable writing style make this a book that will be treasured as much by armchair travelers as by tourists"--"Article| William Scott Wilson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Value Investing
☯ Full Synopsis : ""As with his weekly column, James Montier's Value Investing is a must read for all students of the financial markets. In short order, Montier shreds the 'efficient market hypothesis', elucidates the pertinence of behavioral finance, and explains the crucial difference between investment process and investment outcomes. Montier makes his arguments with clear insight and spirited good humor, and then backs them up with cold hard facts. Buy this book for yourself, and for anyone you know who cares about their capital!" —Seth Klarman, President, The Baupost Group LLC The seductive elegance of classical finance theory is powerful, yet value investing requires that we reject both the precepts of modern portfolio theory (MPT) and pretty much all of its tools and techniques. In this important new book, the highly respected and controversial value investor and behavioural analyst, James Montier explains how value investing is the only tried and tested method of delivering sustainable long-term returns. James shows you why everything you learnt at business school is wrong; how to think properly about valuation and risk; how to avoid the dangers of growth investing; how to be a contrarian; how to short stocks; how to avoid value traps; how to hedge ignorance using cheap insurance. Crucially he also gives real time examples of the principles outlined in the context of the 2008/09 financial crisis. In this book James shares his tried and tested techniques and provides the latest and most cutting edge tools you will need to deploy the value approach successfully. It provides you with the tools to start thinking in a different fashion about the way in which you invest, introducing the ways of over-riding the emotional distractions that will bedevil the pursuit of a value approach and ultimately think and act differently from the herd."Article| James Montier| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Afoot in Japan
☯ Full Synopsis : "Some two hundred and fifty years ago, there was a historicalcultural shift in Japan that witnessed people of every socialstripe on the road, sometimes for weeks and even months, outfor the sheer pleasure of being out and away from their everyday lives. As the number of travelers increased on the roads, so did the number of inns, tea houses, noodle shops and souvenir shops-many still extant today-to accommodate them. In time, this led to a great cross-section of ideas and local cultures, and came to help redefine what it meant to be Japanese. This was ref lected especially in literature, and by the early 1800s, detailed guidebooks were published making travel all the more convenient.After numerous requests from his friends, Yasumi Roan, an experienced traveler, wrote and published Ryoko yojinshu, here entitled Afoot in Japan, in 1810. In this short work he includes detailed tips, information, and instructive poems on a myriad subjects: from footwear, changes in water, poisonous bugs, what to wear in colder climates to how to prevent fatigue. For the more security-minded, there are even printed talismans to ward off whatever dangers one might encounter on the road.Traveling on foot in an unfamiliar environment presents many of thesame problems to the modern Japanese as it does to the Westerner who decides to go off the beaten path in Japan today. Thus, the periodic republications of this two hundred year old book in the original and modern Japanese, and this English translation as well. Shod with a good pair of shoes and carrying a copy of Roan's tips, the adventurous hiker-either rural or urban-will be well-equipped for a safe and rewarding journey.-- WSW"Article| Yasumi Roan| Statement ..."
