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.

Comments about The Intelligent Investor, Rev. Ed:

read about the intelligent investor while browsing the internet.
After much consideration I decided to bite the bullet and buy it.

The only reason I gave it such a low review was because it was basically was just confirming what I already knew buy in cheap sell off big ride the market like a roller coaster.
don't put all your eggs in one basket.

I like the book because Graham has a broad view of investment strategies how ever he was wrong about the governmental CD as I put his strategies into practice on an asx simulator.
the cds I bought didn't work out all to well.

(Maybe it was a poor choice on my part.)
although he made me fell better as I read it
as he put one of those annoying know it all in their place.
They may know a lot about science but they have zero I.Q when it comes to business.
stocks and governmental bonds cds.

Anyway graham was a intelligent man regardless of the book.
making money off the book very intelligent.

His words of wisdom were easy to read and under stand.
how ever due to slow growth in recent times as business don't seem t be able to grow much technology is nearing its peak .

Its not as useful as it would have been in the
1970s -1999s.

Even though some of the companies are still doing ok in todays market must of them have become redundant.

Grahams the intelligent investor makes it simple to understand and has
They are no where near as

unfortunately none of my "friend" would enjoy this type of literature to much fact not enough fiction.
