The Classic Text Annotated to Update Graham's Timeless Wisdom for Today's Market Conditions
The greatest investment advisor of the twentieth century, Benjamin Graham taught and inspired people worldwide. Graham's philosophy of "value investing" -- which shields investors from substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies -- has made The Intelligent Investor the stock market bible ever since its original publication in 1949.
Over the years, market developments have proven the wisdom of Graham's strategies. While preserving the integrity of Graham's original text, this revised edition includes updated commentary by noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, whose perspective incorporates the realities of today's market, draws parallels between Graham's examples and today's financial headlines, and gives readers a more thorough understanding of how to apply Graham's principles.
Vital and indispensable, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of The Intelligent Investor is the most important book you will ever read on how to reach your financial goals.

For instance, for a better understanding of politicians and what we commonly refer to as their unscrupulous behavior, read The Prince, by Niccolò Machiavelli. For a better understanding of classic capitalism and the foundational attitude of the wealthy, study An Inquiry into the Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith. To gain a comprehensive understanding of Adam Smith the man, you have to read The Wealth of Nations in conjunction with his other famous work, The Theory of Moral Sentiment. For a clearer understanding of man's quest for validation here on earth read Viktor Frankl's, Man's Search for Meaning.
All of these people and their works are accepted as the pinnacle of greatness in their fields. If you were to add to that list, The Intelligent Investor, by Ben Graham, you may very well have found a blue print for the successful manipulation of life. According to Warren Buffet, "The Intelligent Investor is by far the best book on investing ever written."
If the world were to recruit one of its greatest investors to instruct the rest of us in balanced, diversified portfolio management, we'd start with Ben Graham. For those interested in exploring wealth creation and personal portfolio management, there is absolutely no better financial or philosophical starting point.
Even if you don't plan on managing your own portfolio, wouldn't it be nice to know what questions to ask? Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Read it, learn it and love it because once you've learned the text you'll never be the same.
This was written shortly after WWII and the examples as well as the markets historical references are dated to that time period.
Bottom line – for MOST people investing in the S&P 500 Index, consistently, over time will provide you with a good return. Trying to “Time the Market” is a losing proposition.
