Have you ever heard of grave dancing? How about being able to sense the dead... not people, but businesses?

Remember, with each episode, we will provide a helpful Deep-Dive infographic where we break down the entire book on to 1 page! Check out, and download, this week's infographic below!

Sam Zell has a pretty unique ability to see a market where no one else does. From an early age he honed his entrepreneurial skills selling overpriced playboys to his buddies in junior high, and then later in life, buying real estate cheap after a market crash. He's known as the Grave Dancer because of his penchant for investing in dying or troubled assets. Sam is a man who wore jeans into the offices in the '60s, and told the Wall Street Journal that "if it isn't fun, we don't do it". The man is a disruptor, entertainer, and a genius entrepreneur. And this book acts as a guide for all those who are similar.

Here are our top 10 takeaways:

  1. Grave Dancing
  2. Fundamentals Win
