#2 The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

No Title

No Description

The Intelligent Investor' is the classic text that Warren Buffett once referred to as the best book about investing ever written.  For a paperback, it's quite long (i.e., over 600 pages), but it clearly explains Benjamin Graham's philosophy of value investing.

That philosophy emphasizes the minimization of occasional market losses that might occur over the long term (e.g., during 'market corrections'), which requiresinvestors to use emotional discipline, in-depth research, and an analytical mindset to make sound investments in securities that are bargains relative to their current asset values.

#3 Against the Gods by Peter Bernstein

No Title

No Description

Most investors lack a framework for understanding risk. They often only realize the true risk of an investment after it is too late. Against the Gods provides a framework for thinking about risk in its most basic terms and historical development. The sophisticated mathematics and technology we use to support investment decision making is useless unless an individual has a solid grounding is how to understand and interpret risk. This book is an essential read for those that do not just want to be told about the risk of an investment, but truly understand what risk it is and how to manage it.
