30 Years of Value Insights from Martin J. Whitman

For over 30 years, Third Avenue Management founder Marty Whitman wrote comprehensive shareholder letters that provided readers with thorough lessons in his investment philosophy, security analysis and value investing.

In 2016, we published a collection of excerpts from his letters that comprise the “best of” Marty’s writings organized thematically to give readers an opportunity to dive into specific topics of interest.

Please use the form below to request a copy of the book.  We hope you enjoy reading these excerpts and continue to find them insightful and witty.
