Invest In This Book, Invest In Yourself

With more than one million copies sold and an endorsement on the cover by Warren Buffet, you know there has to be something to this book- and I think I know why. Simply because it is the first book ever to describe the emotional framework and analytical tools necessary for financial success for individual investors.

Probably the single best book on investing written for the lay-public and the stock market bible since its first appearance in 1949, it's a great resource, although it's quite a thick book and filled with detail- and probably not for anybody but the serious stock market investor. And if getting motivated to start investing is your problem, suggest The Sixty-Second Motivator. Good luck!

If you want to read Ben Graham's Intelligent Investor, try the original without the Zweig commentary. The commentary often contradicts Graham's philosophy, and at best, confuses everything. The Graham part is loaded with useful advice that has years of practical experience behind it, but the Zweig advice is the typical financial crap found in any current periodical. My advice - don't buy this watered down version of the Intelligent Investor - buy the real thing.

    Zweig needs NOT to write in this book

    I mean come on, Graham wrote this book!! Plus, its probably the most influential book he has written in his career. But lets get the facts straight, he wrote the original version. The updated version that has been revised by Zweig should have never been released. I am currently half way through the book and im not going to stop now, but I do wish I would have started with the original version. Zweig is too critical and conservative to start trying to undermine the concepts behind Graham. In Chapter 11, under security analysis 'should be one of the most influential chapters in the book' Zweig makes a sidenote that explains Warren Buffet's methodology of investment is too risky so all individual investors should go with a market index fund. A market index fund? Come on dude, you act like your talking to a 13 year old who is looking to invest his Bar Mitvah money. Let's get real on the subject and stop trying to go against Graham's methods of valuing an individual stock. Especially in his own book!!!! Jeez. I encourage all investors to read the original version of Intelligent Investor, and I will also suggest that Jason Zweig sticks to writing for Money magazine.

    Buy the physical book

    The book is great and I highly recommend it for novices and the self proclaimed investing gurus.

    My actual issue is with the Nook price being more expensive than the paperback. Of course this book is not unique in that sense, but this is the one I decided to purchase.
