A book that has been in continuous print since its first edition in 1934 obviously has timeless relevance. In the intervening decades since their book's initial publication, Benjamin Graham and David Dodd's principles of value investing have made fortunes for countless investors. Warren Buffett calls this book his Bible. Much has changed on Wall Street since the 1930s, but the concept of investing in undervalued companies has not. In addition to its lucid explanation of investment basics, the book is a fascinating picture of a time when policy makers still were absorbing the lessons of the Great Depression: The Securities Act of 1933 had just changed the rules of financial disclosure, and most public companies were manufacturers, mines, railroads or utilities – a stark contrast to today's blue-chip portfolio. getAbstract recommends this book to students of financial history and to serious investors who want to cut through modern Wall Street jargon.
