The book is a step-by-step guide on how to use the Value Investing Method with a simple Jigsaw Puzzle concept (conceptualized by the authors) to uncover undervalued growth companies that can generate 40%-400% for investors. Readers will be able to find out the main difference between Value Investing Jigsaw Puzzle model. The model is broken down into four segments, namely Business, Management, Numbers and Valuation.  Business - Invest in companies that have simple and easy to understand business models. This often includes products/services that we use day in and day out (i.e. Gillette, Starbucks, Coca Cola, etc). Alternatively, investors could invest in a business within their circle of competence - company or industry which they are working in.  Management - Behind every successful business, there is always a team of people running the show. It is important to have a board of directors who are candid, honest and aligned to shareholders interest.  The authors explain how to assess the qualities and character of the management.  Numbers - This section validates the managements track record. By looking at some financial numbers and ratios, readers will be able to assess whether the companies are indeed generating good returns for its shareholders.  Valuation - Even a good business run by great management could be disastrous if investors overpaid them. Thus, this part allows the readers to calculate the actual value of the business and allow them to assess whether it selling to them cheap or expensive. The book concludes with chapters on Portfolio Management and Common Mistakes in Investing.
