Donald Trump in White House

Majority of people believed that Hillary Clinton would get elected as US President. Most opinion polls predicted the same. But, finally when the results were out, everyone was taken by a surprise.

For the political (and other) forecasters, this was just another day at office – another instance of a forecast gone wrong.


Read the chapter on “Expertise and Forecasting” in “Riding The Roller Coaster – Lessons from financial market cycles we repeatedly forget”. The book is available in English (hard bound), Gujarati (hard bound) and e-book formats.

Learn from others’ mistakes and experiences as it is costly to make mistakes

Mr. Nilesh Shah, MD – Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Company Ltd recommends the book strongly. Here is what he has to say,

Wise men say, “We should all learn from our mistakes”. Someone added, “Learn from others’ mistakes and experiences as IT IS COSTLY TO MAKE MISTAKES .”

This is true in the world of investing, too. For investors, it is impossible to go through all experiences, especially what happened in the past. Amit Trivedi writes about various episodes of booms and busts in the history of financial markets in his book “Riding The Roller Coaster – Lessons from financial market cycles we repeatedly forget”.

It is a very well-researched book and yet so easy to read for even those who are new to finance and investing. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and strongly recommend FOR READING AND REMEMBRANCE
