Default Good financial books to read

I remember seeing another thread awhile a go on good books to read but nothing comes up in the search. If anyone has any recommendations please share them. I try to read and educate myself on good reads when I can. I have read the rich dad poor dad books, millionaire next door, and others alike but if anyone has anything else let me know. Thanks

I have met Rick Ferri a number of times. Great guy. All the money from his books goes to charity I think for vets. He used to be a fighter pilot.

Security Analysis by Graham is considered to be the bible for value investors.

I would get a copy or subscribe to the AAII Journal. There is at least one very good article each month.

John Bogle's "The John Bogle Reader" changed my investment life. Well worth the 22 or so bucks and the time to read it. It gave me something to do on the gym treadmill.

A million dollars is just a lot of pennies.

It's not what you read; it's what you do.

Very true, but reading can give you inspiration.

Just can't read read and read, and never ACT.

The reading, can help one understand how to go about investing. It truely helped me understand the concept of investing in companies - long term. This includes the ability to look past market gyrations and think about why one should invest in one company versus another.

Versus the typical, make a profit at some arbitrary $ point and move on, that is so prevalent.

What bjm said, "Liar's Poker." It will make you doubt the motives and intentions of any investment manager.
