The Intelligent Investor

If there’s one book that I would recommend about investing, it would most certainly be the Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham.

Admittedly, the book reads a bit like a textbook, but I am confident that this book is the best investment education that money can buy!

Through following the tips and advice provided in The Intelligent Investor, I was able to set the foundation for my investment strategy.

Furthermore, I have been success with all but one investment since implementing the strategies of Ben Graham.
