Product description


Marshall Loeb editor, Columbia Journalism Review; Former Editor, Fortune magazine David Dreman has written one of those rare, original books on the market that appear every generation or so. Powerful, profound, and extremely well documented, it provides totally new strategies for investing in the 1990s and beyond.

Martin Edelston editor, Bottom Line/Personal Lots of people call themselves contrarians, but David Dreman is the real thing. His shrewd strategies put you far ahead of conventional wisdom. This new classic is easy and valuable reading for anyone interested in beating the market.

James W. Michaels Editor, Forbes magazine David Dreman shows you how to make psychology -- both yours and the market's -- work for you, not against you.

A. Michael Lipper Lipper Analytical Services, Inc. There are relatively few good money managers or good writers on investments. David Dreman is both. In Contrarian Investment Strategies: The Next Generation, Dreman's focus on the understanding of "risk" should free investors from the mathematical traps of so-called risk measurement. In plain language, Dreman explains that the real risk is in investments that underperform for your needs and expectations. This is a great book for all investors, laymen and professionals alike.

Sandra Ward Barron's Beating the S&P 500 consistently. A mutual-fund fantasy? A dream, perhaps. Well, in a way, yes: Dreman it is -- David Dreman, chairman of Dreman Value Advisors, and his Kemper-Dreman High Return fund delivering as advertised. Better still, the best is likely yet to come.

About the Author

David Dreman is the founder and chairman of Dreman Value Management L.L.C. in New York Red Bank, New Jersey, a firm which currently manages over 4 billion dollars of individual and institutional funds.
