What Warren Buffett says

If you haven’t read Schwed’s book, buy a copy. Its wisdom and humor are truly priceless. This book was first published in 1940 and is the funniest book  ever written about investing. It lightly delivers many truly important messages on the subject.

About
The Book
Using exemplars of clear thinking and attained wisdom, such as Darwin, Buffett, Montaigne etc., Bevelin focuses on how our thoughts are influenced, why we make misjudgments and tools to improve our thinking. Bevelin tackles such eternal questions as: Why do we behave like we do? What do we want out of life? What interferes with our goals?

What Nassim Nicholas Taleb says

A wonderful book on wisdom and decision-making written by a wise decision-maker. This is the kind of book you read first, then leave by your bedside and re-read a bit every day, so you can slowly soak up the wisdom. It is sort of Montaigne but applied to business, with a great investigation of the psychological dimension of decision-making. I like the book for many reasons –the main one is that it was written by a practitioner who knows what he wants, not by an academic. Enjoy it!

When a risk taker writes a book, read it. In the case of Peter Thiel, read it twice. Or, to be safe, three times. This is a classic.

What Warren Buffett says

By far, the best book on investing ever written. To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information, What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. This book precisely and clearly prescribes the proper framework. You must provide the emotional discipline.
