Some books that come recommended...
The Japanese have long espoused the philosophy of Kaizen or making small incremental improvements of the processes that people use. Everyone eventually creates a system for investing, whether by accident or design, and ultimately reaps what they sow for better or worse. Unsurprisingly our philosophy is that it's better to educate oneself than not and make intentional steps to knowledge.
Here follow just a few of the books that we have found useful. They are deliberately chosen as uncomplicated guides to investment and thinking about investment, as Albert Einstein once said "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler!" Many of these books have been an inspiration to us for years and Stockopedia wouldn't be here if it weren't for their work - please let us know if you think we should add any titles to these lists, we are all ears!
