J. Morton Davis founded the phenomenally successful investment bank D.H. Blair on a philosophy of venture capital for the common man. In his long banking career, Davis has brought many a thriving small-cap growth company public. Born poor in Brooklyn, Davis rose to the top through — you guessed it — hard work and common sense. This lively book tells Davis's secrets to picking winning stocks and how anyone can spot the small companies that will grow.
