Bob Rodriguez is an investing superstar.
He was the manager of FPA Capital for 25 years until 2009.
And during that time, he more than doubled the return of the S&P 500.
While in graduate school, Charlie Munger — Warren Buffett’s business partner — visited Rodriguez’s class.
After Munger spoke, Rodriguez went over to him and asked:
“What can I do to make myself a better investor?”
Munger responded: “Read history, read history, read history.”
While markets may change, people’s actions don’t.
That’s why I really enjoy having guests on my podcast who write about history.
My guest today, Jeffrey Frank, wrote a book on Harry Truman’s presidency.
It’s called: The Trials of Harry S. Truman: The Extraordinary Presidency of an Ordinary Man, 1945-1953.
The decisions that Truman made during this period continue to shape our world today.
I guarantee you’ll learn a lot. I know I did!
