Books we recommend for better investing:
The Intelligent Investor, by Benjamin Graham
The book for all serious value investors with not shortage of recommendations by the best investors in the world. Warren Buffett studied and worked with Benjamin Graham and calls it the best book ever written on investing. It is a must for both actively investors and for those who let others manage their investments. If you take on the wisdom of this book you will be well prepared both mentally and emotionally for the long journey of investing and will be justly rewarded for having done so.
Common Stocks And Uncommon Profits, by Philip Fisher
Both a good contrast but able companion to the work of Benjamin Graham, Fisher provides guidance for investing in growth companies as distinct from Graham’s value approach. This book provides greater guidance on how to pick companies which will be tomorrows value companies.
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
While more in the Pop Investor category, this is an easy to digest book that promotes and explains why the rich get and stay rich and the middle class and poor don’t. Taking on the simple but effective strategies and ways of thinking that Kiyosaki attests to, will prove valuable to all, but particularly if you are young. So get it for your kids if not yourself and become the Rich Dad mentor to help the next generation while at the same time doing yourself a some favours to improve your future income.
