Great tips.

This is a great book for both new and seasoned investors. One of Buffet's favourite books and although written many decades ago this revised edition has linked the tried and tested advice for modern times. There are many investment GEMS throughout this book.

Great concepts.

Great concepts, if you don't mind the style being a little dated. I think any serious investor should listen it. The modern take is great, and an added bonus. Anyone who complains about the dated style is the type of investor who is going to chase the sexy stocks or shiny objects and these concepts wouldn't resonate with them anyways.

Best Summary.

The author makes it very clear from the beginning of the book that his advice is addressed to investors and not speculators. Within the investor class - he further makes a distinction between the "defensive" and "aggressive" investor as it relates to the time and energy intended to be spent on research/analysis and in conjunction the expected associated returns.

Outstanding book .

Outstanding book going over the basics of investing. Does a great job of helping you get in the right mindset to invest. Some parts are a bit boring but not all of investing is sexy, sometimes you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Best Informative.

The best investment advice I have ever listen. The updated commentaries are great. It is for an investor who will probably end up wealthy, versus a gambler who will probably end up regretful.

Great book with excellent message.

Great book, full of entry and mid level information and theories. This is the book that is rumored to be the inspiration behind the great Warren Buffet. Not to be confused with the other great, Jimmy...

Nice Book.

This is the definitive book of value investing. I learned valuable information about investing. I am an MBA student and it has really supplemented my schooling very well. Graham brilliantly teaches the concept of intrinsic value.
