"Tim Price is one of the most cogent commentators on markets; this book contains wisdom and ideas that every investor should take note of. Tim has summarised the follies of Central Bankers, the avarice and general uselessness of financial advisers, and the bubble in asset prices that currently prevails. He comes up with a Manifesto which is designed to save us from the disastrous policies of the past two decades and to preserve and enhance capital. I thoroughly recommend Through the Looking Glass." Jim Mellon, Investor and Chairman, Burnbrae Ltd
"When Tim give speeches - even informal talks - crowds gather around him. Reading, his new book Investing Through the Looking Glass reminds me why. It's a crisp story of how our Alice in Wonderland financial world actually works... told with wit, style and deep insights. George Soros said that there are some books that can make you a million dollars; this could be one of those books." Bill Bonner, Founder and President, Agora Inc
"Almost everything you think you know about finance, investing and money is wrong. In this wise, easy to read, and very independently minded book, Tim Price explains why. You might not agree with everything Tim says. But Through the Looking Glass will certainly make you think - and might make you a lot of money too." Merryn Somerset Webb, Editor in chief, MoneyWeek
"Certifiable lunatics run the world's central banks. And it takes a sane person to tell that truth. Tim Price is very sane." Michael Covel, bestselling author of Trend Following and TurtleTrader
"Provocative, enlightening and very well-written." Guy Fraser-Sampson, author of The Mess We're In
"One doesn’t have to agree with Price to appreciate this book. He makes his case in razor-sharp prose." Brenda Jubin, Investing.com
‘This book forms an essential part of the education for any private investor’ Russell Napier, co-founder of ERIC, author of Anatomy of the Bear
"Investing Through the Looking Glass, is aimed more at the active private investor, but given value is likely to be the investing watchword of 2017 in equity markets, this book is a good reminder of the fundamentals in a very clearly written style." Lawrence Gosling, founding edtor Investweek Week and editorial director Professional Adviser
"...the book gives a good overview of what’s wrong with the current state of investing, and offers 3 interesting solutions. " Michael Wassermann, Strictly Value
"...most of experienced investors should read this well-written book." J.C. Hyjun, Seeking Alpha
"As always Mr Price writes beautifully and is always provocative and insightful....Although it often feels that as a result of the actions of economic policy makers, and especially central bankers, it is much more difficult for investors to keep heads above water, the reality can be different. Unconstrained by index-based benchmarks private investors are much better placed to grow their wealth, while maintaining its integrity, than their institutional peers. “Investing Through The Looking Glass” shows how this can be achieved." Ian Orton, Editor at Large, Thewealthnet.com
