Introduction About The Intelligent Investor

The Intelligent Investor needs no introduction to the Investment world as Mr. Warren Buffett has recommended this book in as many words as he can.

But my favorite Buffett quote from The Intelligent Investor Summary is this:

“By far the best book on investing ever written is ‘The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing’ by Benjamin Graham”                         

                               – Warren Buffett

Who was Benjamin Graham?

Mr. Benjamin Graham was an American economist who earned the nickname the “father of value investing.”

Graham was Buffett’s professor at Columbia Business School in 1951. Buffett attributes 85% of his investment style to Graham’s principles

My Rendezvous with the Book and Writing The Intelligent Investor Summary

I had started reading this book somewhere in 2010. Unfortunately, I lost interest as the book had thrown at me so many price charts, deductions, and types/classifications at once that I almost lost interest. Let alone writing the intelligent investor summary.

After 5 years, when I had 3-4 years of work experience in the Project Finance domain with India’s leading bank, then I picked it up again as I was getting less and less macro understanding/exposure in my work (however full of sector/project-based learnings).

Then voila, I could read and grasp it like a breeze. So I realized that before reading this master book one should have a real domain/business expertise/mindset to fully imbibe the essence of the book.

However, to make life easier for you, I have written The Intelligent Investor summary and summarized my 4 key takeaways in a few sentences below.

Still, my recommendation to you would be – watch this video first:
