Publisher's Summary

The classic best seller by Benjamin Graham, perhaps the greatest investment advisor of the 20th century, The Intelligent Investor has taught and inspired hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Since its original publication in 1949, Benjamin Graham's book has remained the most respected guide to investing, due to his timeless philosophy of "value investing", which helps protect investors against areas of (possible) substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies which they will be comfortable with down the road.

Among this audiobook's special features are the use of numerous comparisons of pairs of common stocks to bring out their elements of strength and weakness and the construction of investment portfolios designed to meet specific requirements of quality and price attractiveness.

    "Outdated"

    This is a re-revised tome from many years ago that I found unhelpful and void of all but one or two small nuggets of wisdom.

    "Great overview but not very specific"

    I only read this because of warren Buffett. But this won't get you to the next step. Going to try security analysis next. Hoping for more specifics.

    "Goes up to 1972, otherwise a great audio"

    It assumes that listener already has some background and knows terms like stocks, bonds and their basic classification. What is bull or bear market, etc.

    Quick and educational.,

    "A must read for every investor"

    This book must be on every investors bookshelf.
    Before searching for an investment advisor an investor should read this book.

    "This is some bastardized version of the book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Where's the beef? What was Benjamin's words vs some likely sycophant interpreting his book?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I was listening to some amalgam of Benjamin and god knows who.

    "A lot of information, very valuable"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy listening to old school investing strategies (that are still valid of course) and enjoyed the quickness of the book. Many investor books get dry but this one kept up the pace.

    "An OK book, but didn't really learn anything"
    Would you try another book from Benjamin Graham and/or Bill McGowan?

    A very basic, but informative book for the new investor. Very dry, but does go over all the key concepts and terms that investors should know.


    If you’ve listened to books by Benjamin Graham before, how does this one compare?

    n/a


    Did The Intelligent Investor inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Very basic. A dry beginners book at best, but informative.

    The concepts were widely applicable.


    Any additional comments?

    The examples are out of date. Take some time to think of the concepts behind the examples.

    "Great Investment Advice"
    What did you love best about The Intelligent Investor?

    Timeless advice on how to invest. Lots of good tips and insights into what it takes to become an intelligent investor.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Intelligent Investor?

    1. Warren Buffett rates this as the best book on investment he has ever read.
    2. The fact that most times we lose money it is from speculating not from investing and that the greatest enemy of the investor is himself.


    What about Bill McGowan’s performance did you like?

    He does a good lively naration


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was better to keep coming back and soaking up the gems offered by Graham in the book


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read book for people who want long term success in investing
