“They laid out a road map for

investing that I have now been

following for 57 years. There’s been

no reason to look for another.”

—Warren Buffett, on the

writings of Benjamin Graham

Legendary investing author and philosopher

Benjamin Graham lived through

interesting times. Soon after his graduation

from Columbia College, the nation entered

the First World War. As the stock market fluctuated

in wild dips and peaks, the government

seized control of the railroad industry, inflation

and interest rates rose dramatically, and

economic depression loomed on the horizon.

During these events—and perhaps inspired

by them—Graham began writing articles for

The Magazine of Wall Street, putting to paper

his earliest ideas on value investing and security


For the first time, these important works

have been anthologized into a single volume.

Benjamin Graham on Investing is a treasure trove

of rare and out-of-print articles that document

the early flashes of genius from a man

whose ideas and theories would revolutionize

investment philosophy and inspire the careers

of such luminaries as Warren Buffett, Seth

Klarman, Charlie Munger, and countless other

top-tier investors.

The early works of Benjamin Graham have

never been as relevant as they are today.

The world’s markets are undergoing changeon a scale not unlike that of Graham’s era.

David Darst, one of the world’s most respected

experts on asset allocation, provides insightful

analyses connecting Graham’s articles to

events today.

Benjamin Graham on Investing is a timeless

classic that continues to have relevance more

than 30 years after the author’s death.
