Hi Diehards:
Most of what I know about investing came from reading books written by investment authorities. I consider the books below to be among the best for individual investors. Two of the books are actually full length "web books" offered free by their authors.

Linked below are excerpts from each book that can teach us how to invest successfully. Many of these excerpts sound simple, but are based on many years of academic research. If you like a book's excerpts, I urge you to read the entire book.
