Here some of my most favorite finance books:
- The first book I would recommend anyone to read about finance and investing is A Random Walk Down Wall Street* by Burton Gordon Malkiel. The book is easy to read and I think understandable for everyone with some interest for financial topics (including lay investors). Good for beginners. Still, it is well well-founded and science-based. It is not one of this “how to get rich fast” books, but rather sound advice for long term investors. He is focused on fundamental analysis. According to Malkiel, the technical analysis approach is used by those who believe in what he calls “castle-in-the air theory” (also known as “greater fool theory” or “survivor investing”). For me it is probably the best investment book I’ve ever read and my top pick for this recommendation list it would be this book.
