Description of The Intelligent Investor

The classic bestseller by Benjamin Graham, "The Intelligent Investor" has taught and inspired hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Since its original publication in 1949, Benjamin Graham's book has remained the most respected guide to investing, due to his timeless philosophy of "value investing", which helps protect investors against the areas of possible substantial error and teaches them to develop long-term strategies with which they will be comfortable down the road. Over the years, market developments have borne out the wisdom of Graham's basic policies, and in today's volatile market, "The Intelligent Investor" is the most important book you will ever read on making the right decisions to protect your investments and make them a success. Featuring new chapter updates - which append every chapter of Graham's book, leaving his original text untouched - from noted financial journalist Jason Zweig, this HarperBusiness Essentials edition of the timeless classic offers readers an even clearer understanding of Graham's wisdom as it should be applied today.

Press and Industry Reviews

'By far the best book on investment ever written.'
- Warren Buffet

'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

'Graham ranks as this century's (and perhaps history's) most important thinker on applied portfolio investment.'
- John Train, author of The Money Masters, The New Money Masters and The Craft Of Investing


  • Ben Graham was Buffett’s friend, guide and mentor in his early career. The Intelligent Investor aims to do for the private investor what Security Analysis, Graham’s textbook, did for professionals. This edition has been skillfully updated by the financial writer Jason Zweig.
