One of America's most respected guides to the stock market, The Intelligent Investor offers sound principles proven by the success of hundreds of investors for over thirty-five years. Benjamin Graham's main objective in his philosophy of "value investing" is to protect the investor against the areas of possible substantial error, and to develop policies which are rational and with which the investor will be comfortable.

Over the years, market developments have borne out the wisdom of Benjamin Graham's basic policies. Here he takes account of both the defensive and the enterprising investor, outlining the principles of stock selection for each, and stressing the advantages of a simple portfolio policy. The book makes a strong case to show that the continued success of common stocks cannot be taken for granted. Among its special features are the use of numerous comparisons of pairs of common stocks to bring out their elements of strength and weakness, and also the construction of investment portfolios designed to meet specific requirements of quality and price attractiveness.

BENJAMIN GRAHAM was the former president of the Graham-Newman Corporation, an investment fund, and had taught finance at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business and at UCLA.

WARREN E. BUFFETT is chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., a diversified corporation acting principally as an investment company for his many holdings. His investment record has been near perfect, both at Berkshire and Buffett Partnership, a fund which he ran from 1956 to 1969. He attributes this success to following Graham's singular philosophy.

"There have been other good books written about money since 1841, but only a few hold up. The best known and most likely to make you money Is The Intelligent Investor" —Andrew Tobias

'The best book ever written for the stockholder is The Intelligent Investor" says author and investment counselor John Train, with no exaggeration. Benjamin Graham's classic work offers sound and safe principles for investing—principles that have worked for 35 years since the first edition was published. Now reissued with a new introduction and appendix by Warren Buffett, "America's preeminent investor," according to Business Week, this book takes account of both the defensive and enterprising investor. Praise for The Intelligent Investor is strongest today:

"I want to urge people to get hold of [this] book.... If you don't have the right investment philosophy, you can get very badly hooked. And I think anybody who has any money to invest really should understand this approach." —investor Walter Schloss, in Barron's

"Graham ranks as this century's (and perhaps history's) most important thinker on applied portfolio investment." —John Train, author, The Money Masters

"The Graham technique is the safest way there is to make money in stocks." —Christopher Browne, Tweedy Browne

One of "a small library of gems on investment topics." —Money magazine
