The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing"--which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies--has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.

Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham's strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham's original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today's market, draws parallels between Graham's examples and today's financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham's principles.

Vital and indispensable, The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.

This book is Warren Buffett's pick as the greatest investment book of all time! The Oracle of Omaha called this book "the best book about investing ever written."

"The Intelligent Investor" is a superb reference book, and one with which every investor should be acquainted.

Be careful. This edition is the original 1949 edition and is only 249 pages. It does not have updated comments by Jason Zweig as noted on this webpage. I greatly enjoyed this original edition, but it would also be nice to read an edition that is updated for modern times.

Good book, could be condensed to two pages. Investment is about owning/holding for dividend income and potential growth, not about buying/selling, and has nothing to do with market predictions/forecasting. “The investor can scarcely take seriously the innumerable predictions which appear...daily and are his for the asking." "To get rich by market forecasting you must be expecting (a) to try to do what countless others are aiming at and (b) to be able to do it better than your numerous competitors in the market." “All the real money in investment will have to be made – as most of it has been in the past – not out of buying and selling but of owning and holding securities, receiving interest and dividends thereon, and benefiting from their long-term increases in value." "To achieve satisfactory investment results is easier than most people realize; to achieve superior results is harder than it looks."
