My Top 10 Must Reads:

There are a number of blog authors who have taken the time to read and review various investing and finance books over the years and done a wonderful job of doing so. In my progression towards a DIY investor I read a lot of these at different times and I won’t bore readers with more analysis on them that might come across as repetitive.

Instead I’ve decided to take a slightly different approach and list for readers the Top 10 investing books that I feel offer a good balance for building a solid foundation of investing whether you choose to pursue a growth, value, index or alternative strategy.

I’m not encouraging each investor to run out to the bookstore and buy these books today. Instead use your local public library, used book stores or yard sales to find these at a much lower price (or free) and keep them on a bookshelf as a reference for times when you might want to review something you’ve read in them before.

I strongly recommend making notes while you read of important points or lessons you find useful and this list provides something for any readers whether you are a beginner or advanced investor.

I would encourage readers to list their own individual favourites as this post will be archived in the New Investor Index on the site.
