Announcing the Gannon On Investing Book Store

Visit Gannon On Investing Book Store

Books are an important part of value investing and an important part of this site. They were an important part of value investing right from the beginning – when Benjamin Graham and David Dodd published Security Analysis in 1934 and they were an important part of this site right from the beginning when I reviewed that august title and others on my podcast back in early 2006. Since then, Steven Rosales of Value Blog Review has helped fill the void on this site by supplying reviews for this site’s book reviews section.

Finally, I’ve gotten around to improving the lack of good reading resources on this site.

I’ve created a Gannon On Investing Book Store.

It’s very simple. But, I think you’ll find it useful. I’ve included and categorized value investing titles in the way I thought would be most helpful. The best part of the store is probably the Gurus Section where you can find book written by Benjamin Graham, Phil Fisher, Peter Lynch, Joel Greenblatt, David Dreman, Mohnish Pabrai, Marty Whitman, John Neff, and Phil Carret.

I’ve also included a general Value Investing Section.

Then, there’s the Buffett Books Section and the Buffett Quotes Section.

I rounded out the collection with investor profilesbooks that broaden your horizons, and business books – all three selected with the investor in mind. Every book in the store is investor centric.

Finally, I added a section for all the books reviewed on this site – mostly by other people.

Let me know what additional categories you’d like to see added.

As for personal picks, there will be plenty of time for that later, but for now the one book I’d recommend for anyone and everyone is Roger Lowenstein’s excellent but outdated biography Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist.

For the true Buffett buff, the hands-down favorite is “Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett ”. It’s basically an entire Warren Buffett museum crammed into two hardcover books – at $50 it’s an absolute steal and a beautiful book. I’m surprised Amazon still has copies.

If you have any questions about my favorite editions of certain titles, which editions of Security Analysis are canonical and which are apocryphal, and how you can find titles that can no longer be purchased new – please send me an email.

Regarding the store – comments, suggestions, and complaints are welcome.
