The Intelligent Investor

by Benjamin Graham Read Customer Reviews of this Book

According to Buffett, reading The Intelligent Investor was the best decision he ever made in his career. This book is a guide to the mindset of a successful stock investor. It can be difficult to read for first time investors due to fancy finanical terminology. A great book to supliment this one if you're concerned about the difficulty, is the 100 Page Summary of the Intelligent Investor. Fun fact: Benjamin Graham was Warren Buffett’s professor at Columbia – and Buffett was the only student to get an A+ in his investment classes - ever!

The #4 Recommended book by Warren Buffett

The Berkshire Shareholder Letters

by Warren Buffett Read Customer Reviews of this Book

This was written completely by Buffett, and it litterally has years of information that document his wise decisions. This book has an unpresidented amount of positive reviews because of the ever-flowing amount of insights that are contained in the book. Buffett's Shareholder letters are actually free and on the Berkshire Hathaway website, but the hardcopy is nice to have in the event the site no longer hosts the information.
