In May of 2011, Columbia Business School Publishing released Howard Marks's The Most Important Thing, a book that distilled the wisdom of Marks's celebrated client memos into a single volume, making his time-tested investing philosophy available to general readers for the first time. The book was greeted with wide acclaim from investors -- professional, casual, aspiring, and armchair alike -- and became a business bestseller.

Thing Illuminated will give you an unprecedented look into
how America's top investors make decisions and achieve financial
