THE MAKING OF A VALUE INVESTOR follows Gautam Baid’s development as an investor during a brutal bear market, when he recorded his reflections, observations and learnings in his investment journal in the face of an increasingly uncertain future. This book charts the mistakes and successes in the battle for investment survival during one of the most tumultuous market phases in history.

Through time travel–like storytelling, Baid skilfully captures his collective experiences of that period, allowing readers to truly connect with his evolving worldview. The entries from his journal presented in a chronological manner, with added retrospective commentary, are a treasure trove of everlasting investment principles. The result is a book that provides you invaluable lessons on navigating financial markets and building resilience.

Author, Gautam Baid, says, “After the roaring bull run in mid-caps and small-caps in India between 2014 and 2017, investors were in for a nasty shock. The gut-wrenching bear market that began in mid-cap and small-cap stocks from January 2018 lasted an agonizing twenty-seven months and concluded with the COVID-19 market crash of March 2020. The entire experience ingrained in my mind the significance of resilience and longevity—the key to compounding. The Making of a Value Investor covers the journey of my evolution as an investor during a bear market, and my reflections and learnings along the way.”

Associate Publisher, Sachin Sharma, says, “Gautam’s first book The Joys of Compounding created a cult following with its timeless wisdom that resonated with so many readers globally. In The Making of a Value Investor, Baid returns with another gem for his readers. The value investing community will benefit greatly from this book as it outlines how a bear market can turn out to be great learning opportunity for investors. This is an instant classic.”
