The Classic Text Annotated to Update Graham's Timeless Wisdom for Today's Market Conditions
The greatest investment advisor of the 20th 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 listeners 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 listen on how to reach your financial goals.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Smile and share your Soul with the world
I had never thought about investing in the stock market ( in truth I thought it was only for the rich) before reading the Intelligent investor. This book has motivated me to learn more and start investing. This bookj gave me a starting point on which to build my investing discipline.
It is surprising how such al old book has become such a necessity to anyone interested in a topic that requires knowledge to be current. The interesting parts of the book, of course, are its moral elements and not the strictly technical ones; these moral elements are timeless, universal and not trivial. Moreover,I liked the comments at the end of every chapter, to see how these principles have and should be applied beyond the 1970s. Well worth a read!
A long slog. But an important book.
Key take-aways: Diversify. Invest rather than speculate. Be aware of price.
Overused word: vicissitude.
Though this isnt the most exciting book in the world it is one of the most valuable. A great read for some one just starting to invest or even the season veteran who would be surprised to find they learned a thing or two. This book has been highly recommended for decades and still holds strong because the main focus, theory, principles, and strategies srill apply to today. I will definitely relisten to this audio tap with the hard copy of the book to follow along highlight and take notes. This book is worth it.
This book is by no means some pleasure reading novel. Howver for an investor in book and the first I've read it was much more pleasant than expect. There's a lot of numbers and buisness names and acronyms which a beginning investor may not be away of, but you'll learn through this book. It took about the 4th or 5th chapter in till I really got engaged and interested in this book. The begging is filled with unfamiliar jargon and numbers (for a beginner), howver after that point when he starts talking strategy for defensive or offensive investors the is where the interesting stuff stated for me. Overall this book give key examples, practice steps and situations I believe you can apply to investing and your portfolio. Most only all it lays out the mindset and practices of an intelligent investor. I recommend this read all the to the end all while frequently bookmarking chapters and paragraphs you see as critical. Then go back and re read and study these notable points.
His voice is like nails on a chaulkboard and I had to turn it off after 3 chapters.
Many great lessons are in this book. I learned how important courage, reason, and discipline are the most important characteristics of an intelligent investor.
Quite long, if you've taken any sort of finance class in University a lot of it is similar to that, it needed a summary chapter as well because after 17 hours I couldn't remember what the highlights were
"Very good book"
Good book albeit a bit slow and long.
Explains all the essential ideas on how to act more intelligently as an investor. The ideas are mostly well known so this book is more for the beginner and less experienced.
