Remember that reading a case study about investing is a bit like reading about sex or sky-diving.  Doing is different than observing.  Can you act calmly and rationally during a bear market to buy a company after a huge price decline assuming there is value above price?  A severe bear market (1929, 1974, 1987, 2008) feels like this (go to 1 minute 45 seconds of this video)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6PhbLxLGno. Would you be able to act on an opportunity feeling such fear?

I would be interested in readers thoughts on what they learned or what they question.
