The little book of Common Sense Investing. The Only way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns.
Investing is all about common sense. Owning a diversified portfolio of stocks and holding it for the long term is a winner’s game. Trying to beat the stock market is theoretically a zero-sum game (for every winner, there must be a loser), and after the substantial costs of investing are deducted, it becomes a loser’s game. Common sense tells us—and history confirms—that the simplest and most efficient investment strategy is to buy and hold all of the nation’s publicly held businesses at very low cost. The classic index fund that owns this market portfolio is the only investment that guarantees you with your fair share of stock market returns.
The Intelligent Investor. The Definitive Book on Value Investing
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.
The Future for Investors: Why the Tried and the True Triumph Over the Bold and the New
The Future for Investors shatters conventional wisdom and provides a framework for picking stocks that will be long-term winners. While technological innovation spurs economic growth, it has not been kind to investors. Instead, companies that have marketed tried-and-true products for decades in slow-growth or even declining industries have superior returns to firms that develop “the bold and the new.” Industry sectors many regard as dinosaurs—railroads and oil companies, for example—have actually beat the market.
Pioneering Portfolio Management: An Unconventional Approach to Institutional Investment

Swensen employs an array of vivid real-world examples, many drawn from his own formidable experience, to address critical concepts such as handling risk, selecting advisors, and weathering market pitfalls.

Winning the Loser’s Game, 6th edition: Timeless Strategies for Successful Investing
The go-to guide for anyone seeking long-term gain in the stock market, Winning the Loser’s Game was referred to by the great Peter Drucker as “by far the best book on investment policy and management.”
Dr. Charles Ellis, dubbed “Wall Street’s Wisest Man” by Money magazine, has been showing investors for three decades how stock markets really work and what individuals can do to be sure they are long-term winners. Now, in this new edition of his investing classic, Ellis helps you succeed in a market that’s becoming more unpredictable by the day.

Unconventional Success: A Fundamental Approach to Personal Investment
In Unconventional Success, investment legend David F. Swensen offers incontrovertible evidence that the for-profit mutual-fund industry consistently fails the average investor. From excessive management fees to the frequent “churning” of portfolios, the relentless pursuit of profits by mutual-fund management companies harms individual clients. Perhaps most destructive of all are the hidden schemes that limit investor choice and reduce returns, including “pay-to-play” product-placement fees, stale-price trading scams, soft-dollar kickbacks, and 12b-1 distribution charges.
Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth: How You and Your Financial Advisor Can Grow Your Fortune in Stock Mutual Funds
Over the course of the last three decades, I’ve been an advisor to individual investors, and now – for want of a better description – an advisor to other financial advisors. This book will tell you absolutely everything of critical importance that learned about investing during that time. That’s the good news. It may also be the bad news. It’s potentially good news because if one labors diligently and lovingly at this profession for over thirty years, as I’ve tried to do, one learns an awful lot about how markets and investments really work. I need hardly add that, in investing as in life, one learns virtually all great lessons the hard way. At least I did. One also discovers the few big things that really matter in successful investing.
