Editorial Reviews

“Not more than half a dozen really good books about investing have been written in the past fifty years. This one may well belong in the classics category.”

“Talk to 10 money experts and you’re likely to hear 10 recommendations for Burton Malkiel’s classic investing book, now in its 10th edition.”

“ has set thousands of investors on a straight path since it was first published in 1973. Even if you read the book then or more recently, a refresher course is probably in order…. A lucid mix of the theoretical and the pragmatic.”

“If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to improve your personal finances, here’s a suggestion: Instead of picking up one of the scores of new works flooding into bookstores, reread an old one: .”

“Almost every list of must-read investment books… includes Malkiel’s .”

“An engagingly written and wonderfully argued tome.”

That’s about what awaits you in the latest edition of this must-read by Burton Malkiel.”

“A must-read for any investor.”
