This text of investment wisdom spans four decades of articles from the "Professional Investor" journal and its predecessor. The articles are topical, having been selected for their particular interest in the contemporary investment climate, and are written by some of the best known figures in the City of London, including Jim Slater, David Damant, Stephen Satchell, Barry Riley, J.A. Miller, and Professor. T.A. Lee. Some pieces have been written at the writers' peak, others when they were young analysts. They are often written at a particularly significant juncture in history and make predictions that have proved unexpectedly correct or even horribly wrong. However, many are as true today as when they were first written.
