My tops are:


The Intelligent Investor - Ben Graham (especially the version with commentary from Jason Zweig)

The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing - Pat Dorsey

The Essays of Warren Buffett - Warren Buffett

Buffet - The Making of an American Capitalist - Roger Lowenstein

The New Buffettology - Mary Buffett & David Clark

One Up On Wall Street - Peter Lynch

Sensible Stock Investing - David Van Knapp

Phil Fisher's 'Common Stocks & Uncommon Profits'/'Paths to Wealth Through Common Stocks' really spoke to me (especially the later of the two)


I thought that 'The Snowball' was pretty good too, which I am under the impression a ton of people were disappointed with.


'Tulipomania' was pretty good for showing the absurdity of bubbles. I also really liked Hagstrom's 'Investing: The Last Liberal Art'


Obviously, anything by Graham is great too.

Adding few to the list:

Poor Charlie's Almanack : The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger

Security Analysis by Graham & Dodd

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip Fisher



On a side note: Charlie Munger praised and recommended title "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell at Wesco Meeting yesterday.

It would be good to have another perspective on investing. Books by William Bernstein The Intelligent Asset Allocator and Four Pillars of Investing give a pretty compelling case for indexing. It would at the very least allow to properly evaluate one's performance by comparing to a more realistic benchmark instead of S&P 500 which I find is inappropriate for many value investors.
