Recommended Reading

Over the years, I have been strongly influenced in developing my investment plan by many books. They might form a useful program of additional reading to further explore the ideas that underlie my investment plan and in helping readers to adapt it for their own investing.

Please don't ask me which is the best single book - there is no such thing. Our growth as an investor requires ongoing wide reading. Most beginners will naturally think this is a very long list. However, remember that it will take at least ten years to learn the art of investing. All that is needed is to aim at reading one of these books each month. Reading a dozen or so pages each night before going to sleep will reach that target easily.

Would be investors need to embark on a lifelong journey of learning. Neither my books, nor any other one book, is enough on its own. Students of investing must read widely and deeply to be able to think through all of the problems and to thoroughly understand and accept the answers.

I have indicated where I have reviewed the book on the Book Reviews page. I have only written reviews of books sporadically, and then not all books I have read, so don't judge a book by whether I have reviewed it.
