From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Investor's Dilemma

"Not since Graham and Dodd has an author defined investment principles as clearly as Lou Lowenstein in The Investor's Dilemma. Not only does he comprehensively dissect the ways careless and impulsive investors have been misled and cheated by self-serving fund managements, but Lowenstein names specific funds and techniques for careful investors to obtain superior results. This persuasive and extraordinarily readable book will be hugely helpful to present and prospective fund investors."
—Arthur Levitt, Senior Advisor, The Carlyle Group

"Anyone involved with mutual funds—from small investors to top fund executives—should consider seriously this book's insights and message. The mutual fund industry won't like The Investor's Dilemma one bit, but when criticism comes from so thoughtful a voice as Louis Lowenstein, it merits attention."
—Don Phillips, Managing Director, Morningstar, Inc.

"Lou Lowenstein writes the truth about mutual funds, warts and all. And more: a clear-cut case for value investing, the approach that makes sense and that works, and yet is practiced by so few."
—Jean-Marie Eveillard, Portfolio Manager, First Eagle Funds

"Provides a critical, hard-hitting, and honest dissection of the mutual fund industry and what you should know before investing in a fund. Lowenstein provides a framework that you can use to identify funds and organizations that are shareholder-oriented. By following his simple checklist of selection criteria, you can minimize the risks and increase the odds of finding one of these rare funds."
—Bob Rodriguez, CEO, First Pacific Advisors, LLC

"The Investor's Dilemma is an essential read for any passive investor contemplating putting any of his or her wealth into a mutual fund. The book is not only informative, but also well written and entertaining."
—Martin J. Whitman, Portfolio Manager, Third Avenue Value Fund

"The Investor's Dilemma clearly and succinctly contrasts the owner-operator partnership form of mutual fund investing with the conflicted, but pervasive asset-gathering model. Every shareholder in the six-trillion-dollar mutual fund universe should absorb Louis Lowenstein's sagacious counsel. Bravo!"
—Mason Hawkins, Chairman and CEO of Southeastern Asset Management, Inc., advisor to institutional clients and the three Longleaf Partners Funds

"Calling on the wisdom of academics, practitioners, and even the comic strip character Pogo, Lowenstein examines the short-term pressures that doom individual investors as well as many mutual fund companies to engage in speculation instead of investing."
—Bill Nygren, Portfolio Manager, Oakmark Select Fund

From the Inside Flap:

Over 90 million individuals, in 55 million households, own mutual funds. But while one in every two households has entrusted their life savings to these funds, the industry has betrayed their trust. Intent on gathering ever more assets, fund families spew out new funds—600 in just two years—while existing funds flip stocks and even managers, with a calloused indifference to your welfare. It works, at least for the fund families. And thanks to an intensive marketing initiative, some of them now have as much as $1 trillion under management.

That's why Louis Lowenstein has written The Investor's Dilemma: How Mutual Funds Are Betraying Your Trust and What to Do About It. Based on fresh, cutting-edge research by a leading corporate critic, this book reveals how highly overpaid fund sponsors really operate, using, for example, narrow benchmarks that will make even a mediocre fund look good. Step by step, Lowenstein walks you through the conflicts of interest, and even outright theft, giving the reader an inside look at some of the best-known fund groups.

Happily, Lowenstein also takes a direct, hands-on look at a representative group of tried-and-true value funds that have demonstrated a commitment to their investors' welfare. Instead of proliferating new funds every few months and diluting the results for those already there, this select group invests with patient research, holding their choices for years at a time and investing their dollars alongside yours. Along the way, Lowenstein discusses the important factors to look for when picking a stock fund. To illustrate the process, he analyzes two representative funds that are not too large and still open to new investors.

Even as this book shines a harsh light on much of what is wrong with the mutual fund industry, it also helps illuminate the brighter corners of today's investment environment. Written in an engaging and informative style, The Investor's Dilemma skillfully examines the real problems within the world of mutual funds and outlines a value-oriented approach to this market that will allow you to achieve investment success.
