“Successful investing requires hard work and mental acuity. Investing: The Last Liberal Art allows you to approach the task with a full set of power tools instead of a simple screwdriver. Robert Hagstrom masterfully makes the case for a multi-disciplinary approach and then equips you with a dazzling array of ideas from essential fields of study. I wish I could have read this book 25 years ago.”
~Michael Mauboussin, author of More Than You Know: Finding Financial Wisdom in Unconventional Places
We’re closing out this month’s feature on the Columbia Business School Publishing imprint with Robert G. Hagstrom’s Investing: The Last Liberal Art. Hagstrom is one of the best-known authors of investment books for general audiences. This work is an exploration of basic and fundamental investing concepts in a range of fields outside of economics, including physics, biology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and literature. Building on Charlie Munger’s famous “latticework of mental models” concept, Hagstrom argues that it is impossible to make good investment decisions based solely on a strong knowledge of finance theory alone.
