The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham: Selected Writings of the Wall Street Legend 1st Edition, Kindle Edition
"[Graham] is the genius who literally created the framework for investment analysis that leads to successful investing. Like that other genius Edison, Graham created light where there was none." -Bill Ruane, Sequoia Fund.
"It's never the wrong time to invoke the name of Benjamin Graham, value investor par excellence." -Money
"The search for intelligent investing should begin with the remarkable Benjamin Graham's timeless teachings. Read Lowe's book and you'll learn to seek what the original master sought as she helps Graham reclaim his rightful place as the most important and extraordinary investment writer of any generation."-Kenneth Lee, author of Trouncing the Dow.
Known as the "father of value investing," Benjamin Graham was-and is-one of America's most lauded financial thinkers. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, a former student of Graham, extols him to this day. Brilliant, successful, and ethical, he revolutionized investment philosophy by introducing the concepts of security analysis, fundamental analysis, and value investing-theories that have become timeless essentials of the field. Now, Janet Lowe, author of Benjamin Graham on Value Investing and Warren Buffett Speaks, reintroduces the foundations of Graham's eminence-including his ever-relevant market observations and his assessment of long-term economic problems-by presenting a unique compilation of his writings that contains rare and/or previously unpublished articles, lectures, and interviews.
Almost twenty-five years after his death, Benjamin Graham continues to have one of the largest and most loyal followings of any investment philosopher of this century. A prolific and popular writer whose trademark was blending original ideas with wit and intelligence, he has guided and inspired Wall Street professionals with his thoughtful ruminations and piercing insights on a host of investment and economic topics. Though bits and pieces of this material are widely quoted even today, the full writings have not always been easy to find-until now.
The result of in-depth research, The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham brings together the very best the investment legend had to offer, including such incisive works as:
* "Inflated Treasuries and Deflated Stocks: Are Corporations Milking Their Owners?"
* "The Ethics of American Capitalism".
* "Proposals for an International Commodity-Reserve Currency".
* "The New Speculation in Common Stocks".
* "Is American Business Worth More Dead Than Alive?".
* "The Simplest Way to Select Bargain Stocks".
A groundbreaking volume that fills an important niche in investment literature, The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham is destined to become as timeless a classic as its distinguished subject.

The book includes "Renaissance of Value," an address by Graham from 1974 that foreshadowed the bull market of the next decade; "Is American Business Worth More Dead than Alive?", Graham's three-part series in Forbes in 1932 that correctly heralded the deals on Wall Street at the time; and "Interviews with Benjamin Graham," three magazine articles about his musings in retirement after 60 years of investing. Graham, known for his books Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor, could be amazingly prescient. But he also made lots of mistakes, leading him to conclude that no one could be precise about the direction of the stock market. "The only thing that we can be pretty sure of, perhaps, is that we are acting reasonably and intelligently," he said in a lecture 50 years ago. "And if we are wrong, as we are likely to be, at least we have been intelligently wrong and not unintelligently wrong." Like most books by and about Graham, this belongs on the shelf of any value investor. --Dan Ring--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The lectures are excellent. You feel you are sitting in front of Graham and learning investing. The lecture transcripts also contain many questions asked by the students during the lectures and Graham's answers. Invaluable store of knowledge and wisdom!
There are couple of interviews that he gave in 70s. Those contain the gist of his entire investing career and all his wisdom.
There are speeches that he gave to CFA society. In that he has outlined one of the most critical takeaway for us and that is to stay in the middle in the investing jungle. He looks at stock market like big U. on the left you find the stocks of poor quality and fundamentals and hence very speculative. On the very right you find best of best companies whose stocks are priced for perfection and some more. And hence making these stocks also very speculative. In the middle there are vast number of companies that are neither poor quality as left side nor as expensive as right side. These are the companies that grow with GDP rate, have strong balance sheets, produce and sell products and services that economy needs every day, have long track record of steady growth, low profile companies. Graham asks us to focus on this cohort of stocks in the middle because there you oftentimes find mis-priced stocks that you can buy. These are safer bets with margin of safety. Something that you do not get on the left or right of U.
I would strongly recommend this book to all value investors. You will get a lot out of it.
