Jonathan Boyar recently spoke at the GuruFocus investment conference held in Omaha the day before the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. After the conference, we had a chance to review a copy of the recently released book authored by Charlie Tian, founder of GuruFocus.com. Charlie was kind enough to provide our readers with an excerpt of his highly rated book titled How to Invest Like a Guru.

Charlie Tian has quite an interesting background. He has a Ph.D. in physics, originally worked at a large telecommunications company, and was awarded 35 U.S. and international patents. He started investing in fiber optics stocks during the internet bubble – and then the bubble burst. Dr. Tian then learned about Warren Buffett, Ben Graham, and Peter Lynch and caught the value investing bug. This led him to start a website focused on the stock ideas from investment “gurus.” Currently GuruFocus.com has 40,000 daily users and over 20,000 people have subscribed to the premium membership portion of the site. I encourage you to visit www.gurufocus.com to learn more.
