Warren Buffett says:

"Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago"

"Become A Hoarder of Stock Market Books"

We have more than a few dozen 'Stock Market Books' on our shelves .  In fact, we have a whole bookcase dedicated to the topic (see to the left).  We have other interests too.

Yes, we're real book worms!

We happen to like 'Technical Analysis' and have read umpteen books on the topic.

But we novices must at least learn the basics above all else.

Look on every business bookshelf in your favourite bookshop and you'll see a plethora of 'Stock Market Books'.

Be careful!

You need to read the 'classics' before you even think about reading a trading book by someone you've never heard of.

All the classic 'Stock Market Books' are covered in this section, and a few more besides.

"Consume 'Classic' Stock Market Books"

Probably THE best place to become proficient in Stock Market investing is through 'Stock Market Books'.

Beginner investors, as indeed all of us, have to learn.  And we all have to start somewhere.  The market can be an expensive place to cut one’s teeth. So, we reckon Stock Market Books are the best way to get into investing. 

There are many books that have earned their place in investment history.  Written both by the pioneers of the investing world and some modern-day wordsmiths whose works are equally well worth devouring.

The Stock Market as we know it has only been around for a little over 100 years but in that time, a lot has happened. 

Sure, there was trading going on in the coffee houses of London and New York long before that, and trading throughout the 19th. Century, but “modern” trading, has been with us just over a century. We like to think that around about the time of Charles Dow is when we should start taking notice of what some of the wise men of investing had to say in their Stock Market Books.

We call these pioneers of investing “the old masters.”  Because that’s what they were. Masters at their craft.

And, having read many of these investing classics (and still more on our bookshelves) we can testify that the pages of these classics yield valuable trading strategies, trading rules, and how to conquer 'Stock Market Psychology'.

The books listed here, are not a complete compendium.  Rather, they are what we have personally in our library, most of which we have read.  Some more than once.  Others we haven’t gotten around to reading at all – yet.

In today’s world of digital data, there’s no excuse for not obtaining 'Stock Market Books'.  With the like of Amazon’s Kindle, they are mostly all available, and relatively cheap.  When you consider what information is within their pages and what it can do for you, they must be an absolute snip.

For the most part, we’ve tried to give a synopsis of the books that we have read. 

Most of what we’ve written is from memory - we’re talking about a fair few books and lots of them read some time in the distant past, so some of our comments may be a little rusty.

But we hope you're encouraged to read them.  If not all of them, then some of them. You'll be glad you did.

But as it happens, we like reading.  We read lots of books, not just those with an investing flavour.   

You know that they are written by those that have been there and done that. 

Who wants to be a pioneer?  Not us. We’ll learn from those that have been there, done it,  andgot a wrdrobe full of tee-shirts.

But, we understand that most people are not like us, and not prepared to read stodgy books on investing.  We get that.  And it’s with that in mind that we decided to formulate this section of the website.  We try to give a critique of the books that we’ve read and if you like the odd one or three, then maybe you’ll decide to read them as well – or at least – part read them.

Now we're not suggesting that you can be as successful (and rich) as any of the authors of the books that we're including.  We know we're not, and probably never will be.

By the law of averages, the majority of us will not become super (filthy) rich.  But does that matter?  All we ever wanted is to have enough moolah to do the things that we’ve always wanted to do.  Especially in retirement.

In the sections titled “Your Retirement” and  "Retirement Ideas" We outline all the things we aspire to – not least a Bucket List!

There’s no reason that anybody, if starting out at an early age, can’t amass a pension pot of a million or more.  No reason at all.  And by following the advice contained in most of these Stock Market Books – that’s exactly what the authors advocate.

There is a common theme throughout most Stock Market Books, and that is that over the course of a few decades, Stock Market investing has beaten most other types of passive investments.

And there is absolutely no reason to not believe that if massive companies continue to grow economies, the long term trend of Stock Market growth will continue. History has proved this to be the case. Just look at the last 100 years. 

We're old enough to remember the recession of 1970-74 and the Stock Market “crash” of 1987.  Both of which, although devastating at the time, were nothing but a blip on the long term chart.  Note also the dot com bubble of 2000 and the recession of 2008-9.  At the time, worrying.  Now, nobbut history.

So what’s the secret?

There is no secret.  Just common sense.

Save a little each and every month.  The earlier you start the better the end result.

Perhaps easier said than done.  It takes discipline.  But do it. You will reap the rewards when you most need them.  That is, when you hang up your work-boots or office suit.

You’ve gotta trust us on this.  We speak from experience.  We wish we’d have started salting our money away sooner than we did.  DON’T make the same mistake.

We re-iterate this fact throughout this website because a lot of the books that you will come across, say roughly the same thing.

"You Must Devour At Least One
Stock Market Book On Trading Psychology"

Now here’s another common thread of a lot of 'Stock Market Books':

You are not beaten by the markets – you are beaten by yourself. 

You have to learn to be un-emotional in your trading. 

Again - easier said than done.

But it is essential that you do this. 

There are umpteen books on 'Stock Trading Psychology', in fact this website dedicates a whole section to the topic (see Stock Market Psychology).

Why?  Because it is so important.  You could say it’s the first technique you should learn before getting your feet wet in the market for real.

We remember when we were real novice investors, we’d buy a share on the basis that it was a ‘sure thing.’  Only to see, almost immediately, the share go in the opposite direction to what we would have liked. 

And around the same era, we’d sell a share (with perhaps a modest profit) only to see the damn thing shoot up.  Not very long after the sale.

Uncanny.  we’d maybe held that share for a considerable time, and to see it zoom upwards almost as soon as we sold it, was, in our eyes, a conspiracy.

We used to think that gremlins had attached a little camera to our shoulder watching every move we made and then  waiting for us to make a trade.  We bought and … bang, down they went.  We sold and …bang, up they went. Always opposite to what we wanted.

What other explanation could there be?

We've since realised that there was no conspiracy, just as there isn’t today.  But our actions played right into the hands of the market makers (or specialists).  They’re the smart brains who set market prices and know how to trap you.

You’ll discover that a lot of Stock Market Books major on this very topic.  And at the end of the day, it’s all down to psychology.  And boy, do those market makers know how to catch you.

Trading, and therefore making money in the Stock Market is an art – not a science.

You’ll probably get fed up of us repeating this on this website. 

Although we're fans (big fans) of Technical Analysis, we do not believe there is a piece of software out there that can predict Stock Market moves.  Despite what the sales letters pushing these products may try to tell you.

It’s logical.  Trading is an emotional game.  Common sense tells you that no software can get into the minds of traders.  Some programs may come close, especially when volume is considered, but if there were such programs – everybody would want them.

And it’s for this reason that you will not see any recommendation for any Stock Trading prediction software on this website.

We're also not great fans of Stock Market seminars.  And we’ve been to plenty.  We can honestly say that, with very few exceptions, none of them were of any benefit to us.

"Here's Our List of Stock Market Books"

That brings us back to 'Stock Market Books'.

The ONLY place where you will get a ‘proper’ Stock Market education, is by consuming good written material. And it's far, far cheaper too.

The books we’ll be introducing you to in this section are written by some of the best Stock Market Traders that have walked the planet.

Guys like Richard Wyckoff, Charles H. Dow, William Hamilton, William D.Gann, Jesse Livermore, Benjamin Graham, Philip Fisher, and many, many more.

Surprisingly, there’s not a single book by Warren Buffett in the list. 

But … there are quite a few books by people who knew Buffett and those that know his methods.

For us, works about Warren Buffett are a MUST read. We call him the father of Common Sense Investing.

We are BIG fans of his.  His primary investment method is called ‘Value Investing’ and we’ll be referring to that phrase a lot throughout this website. 

Look out for webpages about ‘Buffettology’ as well. No – we haven’t just made that word up, but it does sound catchy.

Where we have found a special interest in a particular Stock Market Book, we have made a link to a separate page, so you can get a more detailed synopsis about the book.

And before we list the books, we’ll make a damaging admission:  some books are boring as hell.  Real stodgy.  Even an enthusiastic readers like ourselves had difficulty in ‘wading through’ one or two of them. 

But they are included because somewhere within, they contain some words of wisdom.

We don’t always read a book, especially stodgy ones, cover to cover.  We select the chapters that interest us.  And we suggest you do the same.  Who wants to be bored rigid?

O.K.  So, without further ado, here’s our list of what we consider to be of use.  There are some real gems in here. 

Our recommendations are clearly marked as such, but don’t let that put you off any of the others, it may be that we haven’t gotten around to reading them, so we don’t really have an opinion.

Apologies for any great Stock Market Books that we may have omitted due to our ignorance of them being in existence. However, if any such books come to light they will surely be added to the below list in the future. So keep coming back to this webpage, it will be continuously up-dated.

 The "Classics":

The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith

Warren Buffett has three favourite books.  This is one of those three.
This book was first published in March 1776 during the Scottish Enlightenment and the beginning of the American Revolution.

The book was a best seller even when it was first published.

It not only influenced economists of the time but also governments and organisations. 

The book is a must read for anyone who wants a better understanding of the principles on which all modern capitalist economies have been founded and the creation of wealth that stems from those principles.

Adam Smith mixed a lot of common sense with history, philosophy, psychology, and much more.

Smith's tome was recognised as one of the first to describe what builds a nation's wealth and touched on topics such as divison of labour, productivity, and free markets.

The Wealth of Nations

Security Analysis by Benjamin Graham and David L. Dodd

This is the second book (of three) that Warren Buffett recommends. The first being 'The Wealth of Nations' and the third 'The Intelligent Investor' by Benjamin Graham.

First published in 1934, Security Analysis has sold over a million copies. The latest edition (based on the 1940 version) has 200 extra pages written by some of Wall Street's leading investors.

In this volume, the principles of Benjamin Graham's value investing techniques are explained asbeig relevant for today's markets.

The Foreword to the book is by Warren Buffett who only repeats the relevancy of value investing in the markets of tody.

The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

This is the third book (of three) that Warren Buffett recommends.

Benjamin Graham was, arguably, regarded as the greatest investment advisor of the 20th. century.  His philosophy of "value Investing" taught investors, such as Warren Buffett, the virtue of long-term investing.

The Intelligent Investor is regarded as the stock market bible.

It is essential reading, even if you do not agree with some of Graham's philosophies.

The fact that it is one of Warren Buffett's top three recommendations is a good enough testimonial to its usefullness.

Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing - A Book of Practical Counsel

Warren Buffett's Three Favorite Books by Preston Pysh

Contrary to what a lot of people think, this book is not a collection of Warren Buffett's three favourite books, that would be a monster of a resource with nearly 2,000 pages.

This book is a mere 200 pages and highlights the useful information that is to be found in the three books that he recommends.

What is really useful is that Warren Buffett starts the book with simple explaations of investment terms and that approach is continued throughout the book.

And, as a BIG bonus, at the end of each chapter, a video lesson is referred to. These are not physical videos but reference to a webpage where you can access the videos online.

This is an excellent book that teaches you how to accumulate wealth over a long period.  Something that Warren Buffett himself is rather good at. 

The tone of the book throughout is top quality written by an extremely competetent author - Preston Pysh.

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip A. Fisher

Philip Fisher is one of Warren Buffett's go-to guys.  This paperback version retains all the wisdom of the original edition published in 1958 and includes Fisher's 15 stock-picking criteria and his 10 "don'ts."

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings (Wiley Investment Classics)

Against the Gods by Peter Bernstein

This is a book about risk.

Human beings are not born knowing anything about risk.  The ability to make decisions based on it need to be developed.  Risk needs to be learned and improved upon as we get older.

The book helps us to undertand that we need not re-invent the wheel, we just need to learn a few basics.

But if you intend to trade using Value Investing techniques, you only need an appreciation of what risk is. 

Essential reading in our view.

Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk

Extraordinary Popular Delusions ad the Madness of Crowds by Charles Mackay

Beating The Street by Peter Lynch

Peter Lynch believes that you can be your own investment advisor by getting to know a company.

Do your own research. Make your own observations.

He likes growth companies.  He also likes companies that are troubled but are going to recover. He likes anything that he can see , on fundamental grounds, that there is a chance of that company making a profit.

He recommends ignoring the ups and downs of the market and concentrate on the fundamentals of the company under scrutiny.

Market Wizards by Jack D. Schwager

This book can perhaps be best described with an excerpt from one of the wizards:

"I like to use something I found in the Investor's Daily, the earnings-per-share (EPS) ... I also like to look at the price/earnings (P/E) ratio in conjunction with the EPS ... In other words, wile I like to see a company with a storng earnings growth pattern, I also want to know how much the market is paying for that earnings growth pattern."

Market Wizards: Interviews with Top Traders (Updated)

The New Market Wizards by Jack D. Schwager

Just as in the original copy of Market Wizards, Jack Schwager has found a new set of wildly successful traders.

All these traders use different methods to achieve their goals.  But how do they do it? What makes them different? What tips and tricks do they have to pass on to us mere mortals?

Most of these New Market Wizards are relatively unknown: Gil Blake, Blair Hull, William Eckhardt, Bill Lipschutz, Stanlet Druckenmiller and others.

Jack Schwager interviews them all and squeezes out of them their "secrets" to them having made fortunes. For example: Richard Driehaus managed a fund that beat the Russell Index more than 2:1 since 1980 and by 6:1 in terms of cumulative return.

A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel

Most investment books are about making money.

This one isn't. It is primarily about the nature of the market itself.

In the book, the author contrasts two philosophies. What he calls a "castles in the air" approach and a "firm foundation" approach.

What he is really contrasting is Technical Analysis and Fundamental Analysis.  What he suggests is that he has no faith in either principle.

He recommends a number of strategies in order to make money in the markets.  One of which is to buy Mutual Funds (or Unit Trusts as they are called here in the UK) and hold them for the long term.

This book should be on every investor's bookshelf.  Get your copy by clicking the link below:

Barbarians At The Gate by Bryan Burrough and John Helyar

This is a story about corporate greed.

Two industrial giants, RJR and Nabisco had not merged into one company when the new CEO decided, to attempt a leveraged buy-out (LBO).

On the face of it, LBOs are a good deal for the small private investor.  Someone comes along and is willing to pay you more for your stock than it is actually worth. But are they ethical?

Reminiscenses of a Stock Operator by Edwin Leferve

It is the story of a stock market speculator, Larry Livingston, as told by a journalist Edwin Leferve.  It is widely believed that Larry Livingston was none other than Jesse Livermore, a famous speculator that made fortunes, and lost fortunes.

Where Are The Customers' Yachts by Fred Schwed Jnr.

Yet another book with a title that is difficult to guess the contents of.

And, in this particular case, you don't often find financial books that have elements of humour.  But this is one.

It got it's strange name from a visitor to the Battery where his guide pointed out all the bankers and all the brokers yachts. To which he replied: "And where are all the customers' yachts?"

Jesse Livermore was probably the most successful stock trader that ever lived.  However, his trading methods are not to be copied.

Because he was a speculator.

In four decades, he made,and lost, four fortunes. Massive fortunes. He was a speculator. Richard Smitten does a good job of explaining Livermore's trading system with step-by-step information on:

  • Reading the markets and stock behaviour
  • Analysing leading sectors
  • Market timing

How to Trade In Stocks

New Key To Stock Market Profits by Joseph E. Granville

At the time this bookwas published, it was a sensation.

G-G-Granville came up with a new theory - On Balance Volume.

He was the first to admit that new theories are useless unless they work, and he took great pains to prove that his theory did work.  He reckoned that once you have identified a stock to buy you can apply his principles and trade with confidence.

He had a 7 step procedure for aplying his new-found theory:

  1. Selection of the most promising chart pattern
  2. Recording of On Balance Volume for the stock selected
  3. Daily surveillance of the stock
  4. Purches the stock(s)
  5. Concentration
  6. Patience
  7. Sell the stock(s)

If you have not read about On Balance Volume, thi book is an eye-opener.  300+ pages and choc full of charts and tables

Sperandeo achieved an annual growth rate of 70.71 per cent between 1978 and 1987.  And during the period 1972 to 1987 he showed very few loss making months.

No wonder this book was a best seller.

He was a big believer in Dow Theory.  He strongly agreed with the works of Charles Dow, William Hamilton and Robert Rhea.  He assert that those principles still hold good in today's markets.

Beating The Dow by Michael B. O'Higgins

Beating The Dow is our kind of book.

When starting out in investing, how does the neophyte know what to believe and what to ignore?  It's difficult. But Michael O'Higgins has found the perfect answer.

And it's an answer that both we and Warren Buffett would approve.  Stick to blue chip companies. What great advice!

Over the long-term, equities have historically risen and for sure, will continue to do so.

So forget trying to make a killing by finding the next "ten bagger" stick to good, healthy stocks that you know will follow the major trend. And that means blue chips.

Even Warren Buffett reckons you should only be interested in about 30 shares throughout your lifetime.

45 Years In Wall Street by William D. Gann

William Gann was into his early 70s when he wrote this book.

He writes that he has revealed some of his most valuable rules and secrets that have never been published before. In his world everything follows a pattern.  And because of this he reckons that you can predict just about anything. 

He is probably best remembered for his "angles" and numerical sequences. 

Traders today still use Gann.  Some wouldn't be without it.  45 Years in Wall Street is Gann's last work and it details his trading rules and techiques. 

To silence his critics - he was right 88-90% of the time.

Truth of the Stock Tape and Wall Street Stock Selector by William D. Gann

This volume is actually two books in one. 

The Truth of the Stock Tape was written, and published,  in 1923. 

By 1929 the American stock market had matured a lot and by the end of the decade came the great crash.

William Gann had a mind to bring 'Truth of the Stock Tape' up to date.  He did this by publishing 'Wall Street Stock Selector'.

Both books are highly regarded by professionals and private investors alike.

Truth of the Stock Tape and Wall Street Stock Selector (Hardcover)

The Great Crash 1929 by John Kenneth Galbraith

This book is an important read for investors.

For history buffs, like ourseves, it's a fantastic read.  We like to know why things happened the way they did, and as history does repeat itself, being able to predict when the next "similar" event occurs would be quite useful.

John Galbraith noted five weaknesses in the economy just before the crash:

  1. There was a big gap between rich and poor
  2. Crime was rife at the time
  3. The banking structure was weak
  4. President Hoover increased import tariffs which made it difficult for foreign countries to trade
  5. There wasa lot of bad economic advice

Essential reading we think.

The Tao of Warren Buffett by Mary Buffett and David Clark

I don't normally rave about any one particular resource because I find most of the books on my bookshelf infomrtive and/or entertaining.

But this book is both informative and entertaining.  And very, very readable. I don't normally read a book in one sitting, but this is one of those rare times when I did just that.

Warren Buffett didn't write too many books himself, this one was co-written by his ex-daughter-in-law and noted journalist DAvid Clark.

Warren Buffet's quotations are legendary and you will find his best ones here in this publication together with wise explanations.  All 125 of them.

Buffettology by Mary Buffett and David Clark

And yet nother classic from this duo of Buffettologists. 

I confess.  I am now a true Buffettologist. I was before I read this book.  The book merely confrimed it.

Buffettology is a proven method of how to invest successfully in stocks. Stocks that will continue to grow and grow.

Buffett himself recommends that only concentrate on a handful of shares, and throughout a lifetime, only 20-30.  On the face of it, that should make the task a whole lot easier.

However, what that means is that you need to spend more time on those handful of shares to get to know them inside out. And back to front.

Warren Buffett has made it his business to get to know everything about a company. Which would also explain why he does not invest in too many technology companies - he doesn't understand them.

Read this book, and its sequel, and work your way through the associated workbook and you will know infinitely more than most investors.  And that includes so-called investment advisors.

The Warren Buffett Way by Robert G. Hagstrom

In this book the author wonders why, with so much information about the techniques of Warren Buffett available, do so many investors fail to emulate him.

Robert Hagstrom attempts to point out reasons why Warren Buffett is super-rich and everyone who attempts to copy him do not come close.

In the introduction Howard Marks cites several reasons why Buffett is "different."  A couple of these reasons are that Buffett is unemotional, contrarian, and extremely patient.

The book details 9 case studies of Buffett's prior investments.  Another chapter details 12 immutable tenets, and another chapter defines the man himself.  A whole chapter is dedicated to how he was educated ranging from his early association with Benjamin Graham and Philip Fisher to his partnership with Charlie Munger.

Warren Buffett's Ground Rules by Jeremy Miller

He called these his "Ground Rules."

"The idea behind this book was to let you know about a snowball sitting on top of a hill, to provide you with a map and enough rope and climbing gearso that you can reach the snowball. Your job - should you choose to accept it - is to nudge it down the hill and make it grow."

His principles were based on the experience of former master trader, Richard Whyckoff who specialised in trading volume and the price spread.

Tom decided to not only write about his principles but he also had designed specialist software, running in real time, to generate specific buy and sell signal.

Japanese Candlestick Charting Techniques by Steve Nison

Candlestick charting is relatively new in the western world.  But in Japan it is well over 100 years old.

They are an attractive alternative to simple bar charts.  Good software will show them as colourful and easy on the eye.

But they are not just "nice to see", they are actually quite informative and as well as being colourful on the eye they use colourful laguage as well. Expressions like: hanging man, evening star, doji, three black crows, make for interesting reading.

 Stock Market Psychology:

The Disciplined Trader by Mark Douglas

MarkDouglas has been trading his own account since 1960 and was the Chief Executive for CompuTrac a Technical Analysis company.

His conclusions were that successful trading is 80% psychological and 20% methodological. Emotion is the enemy of successful trades.

Believe it or not, but the above list is not our complete "collection".

Also, we are not necessarily recommending all of them to you.  The list is overwhelming.

In all honesty, some of them are quite "stodgy".  It took us plenty of time, and repeat reading before we could get our heads around the gist of some of them. 

Fortunately, some of them, are extremely readable and a joy to read.  A subject like investing should be backed up with graphics.  That is to say charts or tables.  Much easier to follow if they are well illustrated.

In particular we like almost anything about Warren Buffett and Edwin LeFevre. And with Technical Analysis we particularly like Tom Williams ad Martin Pring.
