"A fascinating life of kaleidoscopic colour and a wonderful anthropological study that confirms how those formative years shape the way we are as adults." Colin Morrison, Investment Performance Consultant
"As his clients will attest, Paul Mumford is no ordinary investor and, as I know from trying to maintain a semblance of control chairing conferences, he is no ordinary speaker. So it should come as no surprise that, with this entertaining and insightful blend of personal and professional experience, he has produced no ordinary investment book." Julian Marr, editor, Professional Adviser

My current favourite out of the books we received in the office is Paul Mumford's The Stock Picker, a history of the last 30 years from the perspective of the fund he has run and the companies he has invested in. Mumford, who is reckoned to be the longest serving fund manager on the same fund, is a classic stockpicker and if you spend more than half an hour with him you will see why. He constantly gets calls from brokers and has an incredible knowledge of the companies he has or hasn't invested in. His ‘process' doesn't neatly fit into the ‘tick-box' analysis system many work under now but this book gives you a brilliant insight into the way a real, old school, but still very active, active investor works. Lawrence Gosling, founding edtor Investweek Week and editorial director Professional Adviser
