2 Comments on “50 Of The Best Investing Books Of All Time”

  1. I count 15 books related to Buffett, Munger, and Graham and that doesn’t count the many mentions to these three great investors in the other 35 books. In my opinion, this is overkill. Reading one of Graham’s books, a comprehensive book on Munger, the Berkshire shareholder letters, and maybe two books related to Buffett should be more than enough to cover these gentlemen.

  2. I read most of that books, but one of the best is „contrairian investment strategies“ from David Dreamen.
