Here are our top 3 recommendations for investing books for beginners!
The first one we would recommend that is really easy to understand for the beginner investor is: One Up on Wall Street By Peter Lynch
He is one of the most famous fund managers returning an average of 29.2% per annum at the Magellan Fund which is part of Fidelity. The book is great because there is a wealth of great advice, all written in a very humorous and easy to understand manner. This is probably the first book I would recommend to any beginner. There are a lot of stories that he tells about his winning investments and also ones that he made mistakes or missed out on making the book extremely engaging. 10/10 must read!
The second one we would recommend is: The Little Book that Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt.
It repeats the same concept over and over again but it is very easy to understand and also gives you a backtested method of obtaining superior results. It is a short book with a concise method of picking stocks. But I shan’t give away any more because I think you should read it for yourself! 🙂
Our last recommendation would be: The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
This is a more heavy duty and read it only if you are very serious about learning because this book is a lot harder to understand than the previous 2 recommendations. However, since it is written by Warren Buffett’s mentor and also the book that he calls “The best investment book ever written” I believe you will get a lot out of reading this book. I believe that this book is a must read especially if you want to start value investing.
Hope this list helps you to start investing and achieve financial freedom!
