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.

    Great read, essential for both the beginner and expert investor

    The Intelligent Investor is an essential reference book to have within your investing repertoire. The insights provided are both timeless and highly relevant in this fluctuating market and the added update sections help even the most novice investor understand how to translate Graham's teachings into everyday practicality. I read this book during business school and continue to re-visit it every so often when I am looking for new ways to alter my portfolio. I hope that everyone can enjoy this book as much as I have.

    his 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.

    A good edition of a classic

    This is a must read for the aspiring investor. It only loses a star because of oddities in the Nook Book's formatting and the dated commentary chapters. It seems ironic to ding commentary that's ten years out of date for a book from the 70s, but that's honestly how it seemed. Graham's advice is timeless, but the commentator's advice leans more towards advice for the year 2002. Still plenty of good examples there, but Graham's writing has a voice that it lacks.

    Great book

    I have found the book easy to read.Like how things are simplified and puts in real examples of fiasco of the techbuble.just dont like the tools as much that they provide along with reading on the nook.

    Must-read for a would-be investor

    Does an excellent job discussing in full detail time-tested principles of stock investing. Graham's actual writing can be difficult to grasp, but the commentaries help a great deal to understand everything discussed to relate to recent market events. This is not some book that you can read in one night and think that you can get rich quick. Great for future reference to prepare for you for your own investment plan.
