Not for the Technical Trader
It's a great book for those who want to learn value investing and analyzing a company not by the price movements, but digging into the financials.

The first book anyone should read about finance
You wake up one morning and decide you want to learn about how to make money in stocks. There are thousands of books in the market place each touting their own reasons for why they could make you RICH RICH RICH!!! Rich beyond your wildest dreams. The vast majority will fail. The Intelligent Investor doesn't promise to make you rich, it promises to make you smart, which is why it should be the first book anyone reads who wants to get into the markets.

Benjamin Graham is THE value investor. The first one to do it and the first one to develop a successful strategy. Warren Buffet was mentored by Graham and adapted Graham's trading philosophy for his own use. No other trading philosophy has a 100 year track record of success as measured by positive alpha.

The Intelligent Investor will introduce you to value investing and tell you that you shouldn't be investing in risky assets unless you do it for a living and even then, it will tell you that you probably shouldn't do it. If this book does a good job of scaring you away from becoming an active trader, it will prescribe a safe low maintenance way for you to invest your money.

I do not overwhelmingly favor value investing or technical analysis. Instead, I believe they should be used together to generate great returns. This book serves the purpose of introducing you to value investing while warning you of technical analysis. These warnings should be weighed against the substantial abilities of some to make strong risk adjusted returns year after year.

Overall, no book does a better job of introducing you to the markets. This one does it from a value investing mindset and should be read by every investor. This book will not make you RICH RICH RICH, but it will attempt to make you smart and cautious, two preconditions for a great investor.

This book will make you a boring person.
This book is dull, kind of like value investing. Obviously knowing about value and being able to find underlying value in a company is important, it's boring. Education wise, this book is invaluable to any long term investor, entertainment wise, watching a rock tumbler polish rocks all day is way more exciting! And don't believe the hype this book will not make you the next Warren Buffet or Peter Lynch.

Timeless Advice For Long-Term Investors
After arriving at a Barnes and Nobles not to far from my town, I decided to walk into the Finance section like I usually do and search for this particular book. Warren Buffet gives this book much credit based on my research - I felt obliged to look into it to see why. Although it does not have universal appeal - as in as much usefulness for a micro-cap or day trader - as it does for the casual or serious long-term investor, it is excellent nonetheless. Benjamin Graham provides timeless advice for the two aforementioned types of investors with "value investing". A good read, but maybe not for everybody. This book is not meant to entertain you, but inform you in a serious way - hence I rated it accordingly.

Must read, a necessity in every traders library
This is THE book for value investing. It is dry, and at times difficult to grasp at first read, but very educational. The methodology and processes discussed in this book are imperative for practicing value investing. This belongs in the collection of book every trader/investor needs in their library of reference. Great book.

Written in Gold!
Slow, dry , unentertaining yet chalked full with educational material, I tried reading this first as a beginner in the stock market, the first chapter on bond valuation in the 1800's lost me pretty quickly. Yet a year or so later I returned to it, although very unappealing to many the slow style of the book hit me in a way it hadn't the first time, written in a formal tone one can not stop to imagine Warren Buffet reading this very book some years ago . This book taught me so very much, after closing the last page you are a new investor. It is easy to think of Mr.Graham as a long term minded individual and I can see how many can make that argument. Yet his lessons appeal to all sorts of investing, Warren Buffet took the new knowledge and made investments in special situations, liquidations, special takeovers anything where he had an edge. The opportunities tended to lie in small caps, cigar buts. Although many remember him for Coca-Cola, Nike and other large caps, he started his path in the most shaddy of places. This book is one to keep in your shelve, to re-read every year and to analyze with fervor.

THE investors book
This is absolutely THE book for value investors. You will find that the book is dry, but very educational. The methodology and processes discussed in this book are imperative for practicing value investing. Many people consider this book the Bible of investing and I would absolutely second that. Bottom line, this is a must read. Follow it up with Graham's other classic, Security Analysis.

Value Investing
This book has had such an impact on investors that reading it is essential even for traders with a totally different style. The famous Warren Buffett learned what he does from this book. One needs to have a long time horizon to be a value investor. I'm not so sure how well Graham's strategy performs, but many people are convinced that it is the way to go.
