Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    "Insightful and grounding!"

    A very different point of view of the concept of investing and what constitutes a sound investment.

    "Changed me"

    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.

    "Time tested principles of investing"

    This is consistent with my observations. Some stocks go up/down related to sentiment and lack of direct events.
    I will listen to this again.
    It would be ideal if the audiobook also had the charts referenced throughout the book... currently requires user to purchase both formats.

    "Great Foundation for Financial Education "

    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.

    "A must read (listen) for investors seeking wisdom."

    A long slog. But an important book.
    Key take-aways: Diversify. Invest rather than speculate. Be aware of price.

    Overused word: vicissitude.

    "This book does not belong on audio"

    Save yourself the time and just google "value investing Benjamin Graham". Most of the book is spent convincing you of the concept with a myriad of examples, all from the late 19th and early 20th century. Rather than update the book, you get it as it was written decades ago with ancient examples one struggles to relate to and then at the end of the chapter the footnotes bring it up to date. Ben is always referencing tables and charts, which kind of defeats the purpose, for me at least, of an audio book. I highly respect Graham and value investing, but if your already convinced it's a good strategy, then you really just need chapters 14 and 15.

    "This book is not suitable for audible format "
    What did you like best about The Intelligent Investor Rev Ed.? What did you like least?

    The book is outstanding. Rich material and time tested wisdom from one of the thought leaders and legendary investors of all time.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator has a monotone voice that makes it hard to follow the material.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone who has read the intelligent investor many times throughout the years, in my opinion this book is not meant to be listened to in an audible format. You will get much more out of the material by reading, digesting, pausing and sometime re-reading this unique piece of work.

    "Would be 5 stars if this gets updated"

    Much of this book focuses it's analysis on the 1960s through 1970 as well as the tech bubble and subsequent crash (roughly 1999-2002.)

    While many of Graham's fundamental principals are still applicable today, such as the importance of establishing a margin of safety, much of it focuses on individual and conservative stock picking. These days, similar exposure can be achieved by buying an index fund, a point Ben Zweig mentions in his commentary.

    Further, many of the examples of extreme losses, irrational investors, and obscenely overpriced issues in the commentary (1999-2002) focus on tech stocks. It would be interesting to see this book updated to include examples during a period more characteristic of typical market conditions.

    "A spring of water in a dry land!"

    Though I have not looked into Benjamin Graham as a person, his insights and wisdom are most assuredly not his own but borrow from the LORD God who is forever blessed amen!
    Graham pours himself out in this book. may you drink and enjoy.

    "Why it's the No.1 Book On Investments"

    It's easy to see why Warren Buffet consider this "The best book ever written on investments ." Benjamin Graham's advice for the defensive investor (all of us regular people) is simple - DON'T TRY TO BEAT THE MARKET!
    99/100 you'll make less (if not lose) money than you would invested in low cost index fund!
