Warren Buffett - The Book that Changed My Life:


The Intelligent Investor - Ben Graham

Graham  gives a bedrock of investment philosophy that really hasn't changed. 

 Benjamin Graham was Warren Buffett's professor, and afterward Warren went to work for him, was inspired by him and a friendship developed which lasted until Ben died.

Buffett comments in the speech:

Graham was a marvelous man and his ideas have had a large influence in the securities industry.

Ben Graham moved out to California in 1956. You could never balance the books with Ben.

It seemed like there was nothing you could do for him.

He couldn't help but be smart.  He was born that way. He was going to accomplish things intellectually right from the start.  He was an equally good human being which was by choice.

He wrote the book in 1933 after everyone had lost their money at during the Great Depression. But he could see ahead into the future fr enough to expect better things for the economy .

He wasn't an arrogant person, in spite of having a superior intellect.  He helped his students, even though he would never see them again nor be able to pay for his kindness.  He was giving them knowledge that would make them great competitors to him.

He would give out ideas that you most likely would never find on your own.
