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.

Undoubtedly a must read

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This masterpiece by Benjamin Graham was written with the individual investor in mind. In this easier-to-read book, Graham provides guidance for creating a portfolio, including suggested upper limits for valuation ratios. The original edition was published in 1949, and Graham tinkered with his suggestions for valuation in later editions. (AAII has three screens based on Grahamís strategies:Defensive Investor (Non-Utility), Defensive Investor (Utility) andEnterprising Investor)
