40 NOVEMBER 2011 investment insight Prices do not include gst and may be subject to change Clinical Cases in Periodontics Nadeem Karimbux ISBN: 9780813807942 • Paperback • 344 pages • Wiley-Blackwell $93 ex gst Wiley-Blackwell's "Clinical Cases" series provides actual cases with an academic backbone. Clinical Cases in Periodontics describes the core principles of periodontics and demonstrates their practical, every-day application through a range of representative cases. Highly illustrated in full color, Clinical Cases in Periodontics utilizes a format that fosters independent learning and prepares the reader for case-based examinations. The book presents clinical cases, accompanied by academic commentary, that question and educate the reader about essential topics. Its case-based format is particularly useful, both as a textbook from which to learn about the challenging and absorbing nature of periodontology, and also as a reference tool to help with treatment planning when complex cases present in the dental of ce. Ironically, at these times, we commonly fail to recognise that we are actually at the point of maximum financial opportunity. I believe we have either seen or are nearing that point and the smart money is focusing on the long-term value represented by shares at current prices. The only way to determine the exact bottom of a market is after the fact. Unfortunately, many people who sold at the point of maximum financial opportunity (near the bottom) wait too long to reinvest and as a result miss out on the strong rebound that inevitably follows all corrections. As a result, the average investor's portfolio tends to under perform because emotions overcome logic and the average investor ends up selling low and buying back at higher prices. This is certainly not the path to financial security but it is a well-trodden path nonetheless. A guide to investing called the Wisdom of Great Investors features insights and tips from history's greatest investment minds. The following are some quotes that may keep things in perspective: "Individuals that cannot master their emotions are ill-suited to profit from the investment process." Ben Graham, the father of value investing. "Far more money has been lost by investors preparing for correction or trying to anticipate corrections than has been lost in the corrections themselves." Peter Lynch -- Legendary investor and author. "Be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy." Warren Buffett -- Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway. "You make most of your money in a bear market. You just don't realise it at the time." Sheldon Cullum Davis -- Legendary investor and Diplomat. A personal favourite: "The function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable." John Kenneth Galbraith -- Economist and author. These great investors have weathered many economic cycles and bull and bear markets. I encourage all of my readers to heed their collective wisdom. Take a few moments to read the complete article* as it will help you put the market volatility in perspective. *A copy of the Wisdom of Great Investors is available on www.2020directinvest.com.au/ada or email me a request for a copy.
