Recommended as an introduction to trading
I have a friend who is a successful day trader. I’ve been a truck driver for years. I can see the trend the way things are going – automation is everywhere. That’s why I got into trading. I wanted to have a way to generate income independently. And being on the road has provided plenty of opportunity to study. Back to my friend – it was from his advice on where to start that I picked up this book. Having no investing experience, I was lost at first. I was also concerned because he told me it was originally published in 1949. He assured me that many of the same principles still apply, even though everything is electronic and regulations have changed.

I can see why this book is considered a classic. Graham, the author, details his philosophy on minimizing loss, emphasizing research and analysis over other approaches. Avoid emotion/temptation and always having a reason to trade is echoed throughout the book. I’m grateful for my friend’s suggestion in reading this first. I probably would have lost a few thousand at least just guessing market trends. Over the years, additions and annotations have been made to bring the book more up to date.

Remember that the performance and value of companies impact all types of markets, even the futures I trade now. This book helps you find returns on investments in companies (stock trading). Regardless of the type of market you trade, I definitely think this will be helpful. And for its very low paperback price on a major book seller that shares it's name with one of the world's largest rivers, it’s a steal.

Read the book - not bad at all
I think there is a lot that is outdated, but still relevant to investing. I don't think there is a lot applicable to a day-trader or intermediate trader. But for investing it is solid.

Building blocks of investing
Excellent book that spells out the basics of investing. Buy low and sell high. Evaluate stocks to determine which are undervalued.

A classic still relevant to new traders
You have to remember that this is a classic, timeless book that has been updated throughout the years. It's probably the most prolific investment book out there. It's interesting to see how some things haven't changed 50 years later. The first few chapters contain information that would benefit nearly any type of trader. They provide a clear picture of how Wall Street operates, despite what you may see on TV or read in the papers. I found some of the material unrelated because I am more interested in futures. I found the author's application of a personality to the market as "Mr. Market" very relatable. I can't help but think about this market this way as I trade. Overall, this book has made me a better, more cautious trader.

Must read for everyone involved with the stock market
Must read for everyone doing some kind of business on the stock market.

Although I am focused on day- and swing trading this helps you understand the market much better.

Excellent
This review is based on reading the book in one day, and so not really having time to put into practice what Graham recommends. I'm however reviewing the text and style of the book, which is superb.

Good information and analysis, the web references are invaluable, and very balanced synopsis of the past performance of the market. What I would suggest for future revisions is the updating of the market's performance since 1972, upon which the original text is based. It's somewhat disconcerting to be reading about events that occurred almost 30 years ago in the conext of today's market.
