"The book does provide investors a valuable reality check in an age when the stock market continues to defy gravity". -- Teresa McUsic - Knight Ridder News Service

Here, Anthony Gallea a Contrarian with impressive credentials and William Patalon a savvy business writer -- explain this strategy for everyone in the market: novices and professionals alike.

Written in a conversational style with exciting stories about big name but (at one time) out-of-favor stocks like Chrysler, IBM, Citicorp, and Xerox.
Gallea and Patalon show how the Contrarian approach can be systematized. They identify the key indicators backed by solid research that tell an investor when to buy and sell stocks. The authors have created a set of guidelines or trading rules that any investor can learn and put to immediate use.

Why Contrarian stock-picking works
How to identify a Contrarian stock
When to buy; when to sell
How to help reduce risk
