Safal Niveshak’s Book Giveaway 2015 – Win 15 Free Books!

If you are to listen to Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, or any smart people around, they’d tell you that the best way to get smarter is to read a lot.

Warren Buffett says, “I just sit in my office and read all day.”

Charlie Munger says, “We read a lot. I don’t know anyone who’s wise who doesn’t read a lot.”

“But which books should I read?” ask a lot of tribe members.

Here’s a solution I propose, and something that would surely interest you.

I’ve picked out 15 of the best books I’ve ever read on investing, human behaviour, and related subjects. I want you to have them. All 15 of them, worth Rs 7,500 or even more. I will pay for them.


I can’t give all 15 books to all the people who read this, but I am looking to give them to 3 people through Safal Niveshak’s Book Giveaway 2015. See the bottom of this post for more details.

Here are some of the amazing books I’m giving out:

  • Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist by Roger Lowenstein
  • Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk by Peter L. Bernstein
  • Seeing What Others Don’t: The Remarkable Ways We Gain Insights by Gary Klein
  • How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big: Kind of the Story of My Life by Scott Adams
  • How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness by Russ Roberts

Three readers will grab these 15 books each.

The Giveaway is open to people residing in India or with an Indian address, as the books will be delivered to an Indian address only.

However, if you are an international resident or an Indian with an international address, and if you win, you will receive an Amazon gift card worth a similar amount (approx. US$ 120) instead of the books.

Here is how you can enter this Giveaway and also increase your chances of winning and getting all of the books.

Read this very carefully. What you have to do is this –

  • Visit the Giveaway page here. Register yourself by entering your email id.
  • Click the confirmation link in the email you receive with the subject line – “Confirm your entry for Safal Niveshak’s Book Giveaway 2015”

  • You can also email your “lucky URL” to all your friends and colleagues for them to register for the Giveaway. You can see this URL after you register for the Giveaway, and will also receive it in your email. The more people who register through your URL, the more points you’ll accumulate.

Now, if you are ready to participate in this Giveaway and get a chance to win 15 amazing books that can help you become smarter, get going right away.

Click here to enter the Giveaway and then start sharing to increase your chances to win the 15 amazing books, all for free.

        Be true I did it for Safal Niveshak(S.N), because I want S.N and your thought’s to every investor.

      So keep sharing the link and ask people to register themselves as well.

  13. Vishal, Is it right that the person with maximum referrals ( with max. points) will be the winner of this contest? Can you please elaborate.

    Thanks

  16. Deepak Agrawal says:

    Hi Vishal
    I just entered the book ok winning competition by registering myself . Now some food for thought for everyone trying to max out registering other folks . Even though it’s true that you’ll get more entries when u register other people via ur efforts the overall probability of your winning the prize will also go down in that proportion as there will be more people in the fry vying for the coveted prize. Unless the math is on how exactly does the referral system works in increasing the chances of winning of the person making the referral you might be infact damaging your chances as well as that of the people already in the pool by making more referrals . Having said that I will myself try to maximise referrals as this is really abt. Sharing value and having fun than about winning or losing :-)))
    I just wanted to elucidate a second level thinking by talking abt this not that I want to damage vishal’s excellent marketing strategy for his even more excellent and superb and one of the only kind value investing course available anywhere in the world at a base bargain price.
    Good work Vishal , keep it up and folks please let me know your thoughts on this post.
    Cheers
    Deepak

    • Dear Deepak,

      Thanks for your kind words of appreciation for Mastermind! 🙂

      As for your thoughts on the Giveaway, yeah that’s the way it works. However, the only way to win is by getting new people to register because you get 5 additional points for every person who registers through your lucky URL.

      And the best way to increase your chances of wining is to refer other people and then ask them not to refer other people. 🙂

      Regards,
      Vishal

  17. Deepak Agrawal says:

    So it’s not a lucky draw kind of situation . One who makes the maximum successful referrals gets maximim points and wins . Is it ?

  18. Deepak Agrawal says:

    I was just wondering is there a way to make it more incentive friendly for both of us . I mean me referring more people but asking them not to refer any more works good for me but not so good for u :-)) may be next time u can think of structuring it in a way such that the person whoes “team” does the best job wins and that way all the incentives are lined up in right way for both the parties – u and ur potential fellow students….like Charlie munger always says getting the incentives right is of paramount importance in getting the right results…
    Thanks vishal

  19. On a different note – I will probably be attending ur upcoming workshop in Pune . Can u pls cover how to read a banks or financial company’s – reliance capital , repco , insurance companies etc balancesheet and p and l statements etc in ur workshop . That is something I have always struggled with and none of the books that I have read does a good job in explaining on how exactly does financial statements relate to the underlying business when it comes to finance companies. I just cannot get a handle around it because the business model of these companies is not very intuitive ( for me anyways bcs of a lot of leverage they use may be ) .just a request if u can accomodate please . Thanks
