The Davis Dynasty: Fifty Years of Successful Investing on Wall Street


Praise for The Davis Dynasty

"Equally relevant to the uninitiated and to those of us who have many years' experience with the Davis dynasty, Rothchild's book takes a close look at the family's remarkable success and endurance. I know that many will find it interesting to learn how, even today, Davis endeavors remain focused on the long view, guided by the strong investment philosophy and business principles that Shelby himself lived by in one of the most important periods in commercial history."-M. R. Greenberg, Chairman and CEO, American International Group, Inc.

"This is really two books in one. It is the story of a rarity in the investment business: a family whose money management skills have evolved and been passed on from the patriarch to two succeeding generations. It is also a how-to book on commonsense investing. As the dot-com phase passes into history, this book provides some useful lessons on how fortunes are built and then used for constructive purpose."-Byron R. Wien, Chief U.S. Investment Strategist, Morgan Stanley

"This is an unusual biography, a rare gem that captures the history of one of Wall Street's greatest families. The Davis Dynasty offers unparalleled insight into the Davis family investment philosophy."-Barton M. Biggs, Chairman, Morgan Stanley Asset Management , Morgan Stanley Dean Witter

"When John Rothchild combines history and biography with investing in one package, history illuminates the biography and investing, biography illuminates the history and investing, and investing illuminates the history and biography. This is a sparkling book on each level, but even more so as an adroitly mixed cocktail of all three."-Peter L. Bernstein, author of The Power of Gold: The History of an Obsession and Against the Gods

JOHN ROTHCHILD wrote, with Peter Lynch, the blockbusters One Up on Wall Street, Beating the Street, and Learn to Earn. Rothchild is the sole author of The Bear Book, A Fool and His Money, and Going for Broke. A former editor of the Washington Monthly and Fortune magazine, Rothchild has written for Harper's, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and other magazines.
