4 out of 5 (7 ratings)


The classic bestseller by Benjamin Graham, "The Intelligent Investor" has taught and inspired hundreds of thousands of people worldwide.

Since its original publication in 1949, Benjamin Graham's book has remained the most respected guide to investing, due to his timeless philosophy of "value investing", which helps protect investors against the areas of possible substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies with which they will be comfortable down the road.

Over the years, market developments have borne out the wisdom of Graham's basic policies, and in today's volatile market, "The Intelligent Investor" is the most important book you will ever read on making the right decisions to protect your investments and make them a success.

Featuring new chapter updates - which append every chapter of Graham's book, leaving his original text untouched - from noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of the timeless classic offers readers an even clearer understanding of Graham's wisdom as it should be applied today.

Review by

Way overrated and out of date. There are some investment principles that would not change over time, but those covered in the book appear to be too elementary for any professionals.

Review by

Fantastically helpful book if you're interested in investing in individual stocks. Well written and interesting, but not a breezy beach read by any stretch of the imagination. Zweig's introduction is well worth reading, too.

Review by

An exceptional book about value investing. Written over 60 years ago, the advice given is still great today. Zweig's commentary is the best part, as it gives relevance and essential updates to the often dated examples. The book is also a great book for the philosophy of investing, setting very realistic goals. Overall I felt that it was a truthful book and has the backing of unmatched investors. Be warned, it's also a very long read, but broken up well into chapters.

I read it for the 2nd time - the first time I quit it after 100 pages. <br/>Once you are done with this wonderful book on investing, you'll learn that most other literature in the field of value investing seems mimicking what the master has said decades ago.<br/>If you are not from the finance background, initially the book may seem boring or esoteric - as was the case with me. But once you begin to pick up investment basics I'm sure the book will be priceless.<br/>Still I can't claim that I've understood it completely, but then that's why I'll read it for 3rd time, or maybe 100 more times.<br/><br/>I recommend this book for everyone.

This was given to me by my boyfriend and by far still one of the best books about stock trading for the long and safe term. :) Another good pick for guides on financial goals.
