Recommended Posts

I have came across this reading list yesterday ,most of them are familiar to most you but some worth checking.


Fairholme's library contains an array of texts on finance and investing, but we also read history, social psychology, biographies, fiction, and other subjects which can all come into play in making investment decisions. Often, investing is more liberal arts than it is business science.


Bruce Berkowitz has culled the following titles from the Fairholme shelves, and recommends them to investors and students of finance.
