I have not seen the videos in the link below. Let me know if you learn anything practical.
Pitch the perfect investment (videos)
Listen to the interview: https://soundcloud.com/valuewalk/pitch-the-perfect-investment-with-paul-sonkin-and-paul-johnson
Other than seeing the videos and listening to the interview, I have yet to read the book. The book may help an analyst learn how to form their ideas into a concise report. Remember than many money managers have nano attention spans, so you must get your idea across quickly in a compelling way.
That said, one area that might not have been covered is how to KNOW THYSELF! What approach fits your interests, skills and talents and how do you accomplish the goal of knowing your circle of competence? Then how do you learn from mistakes? How do you track your learning and results? Because of randomness, learning from past investments is more difficult than it appears. Spend as much time studying yourself as the company you are pitching!
The above is not a knock on the book; I believe self-knowledge is an underemphasized skill of the investment game.
