6. A Random Walk Down Wall Street

This is a classic book, first published in 1973. The 9th edition just came out this year. Every investor, whether you believe in market efficiency or not, should read this book at least once. This book does a very good job reconciling between market efficiency and perceived inefficiencies such as bubbles at different times. The author believes in a weak form of efficient market theory. Simply put, the market may not be perfectly efficient at all times, but it’s efficient enough to make it very difficult and costly trying to beat it.

7. Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors

Author and Wall Street veteran Stephen L. Weiss has taken precisely the opposite tack, with great results. In “The Billion Dollar Mistake“, he chronicles the single worst trade made by each of a dozen or so legendary investors. It’s a well-researched set of cautionary tales. I enjoyed and learned from them.
