Investment Books Worth Reading

R. E. Richter "recipe tester"
The list author says: "These comments and the entire book list itself are taken from one of the later chapters in William Bernstein's book, The Four Pillars of Investing. I have turned to this book many times and survived the real estate bubble mania as a result of reading it. (The book was published in 2002.) The comments listed after each book are mostly direct quotes from Mr. Bernstein's text. I have only condensed in a minor way. I've not read all of these books, either, but record them here as a reading plan for myself. Good luck."
