Book Review: The Sceptical Investor How contrarians bet against the market and win – and you can too

Most books on investing have a positive title, like “How to win at investing” or something similar,
but Stepek has chosen as a main title one that is fitting to his cautious and thoughtful approach
(the subtitle does a better job of whetting the reader’s appetite) . The Sceptial Investor proffers to be about
contrarian investing, a subject that could be covered in a handful of pages, but this book is so
much more. The stall is set out with a foreword by Merryn Somerset Webb highlighting the need for a
new type of book which leads us into why Stepek has opted for the term “sceptical” rather than
“contrarian”. This makes perfect sense as his approach is measured towards the investment industry and media as a whole.
