Benjamin Graham, the Father of Financial Analysis Irving Kahn, CFA & Robert D. Milne, CFA Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Benjamin Graham died on September 21, 1976 at his home in Aix-en-Provence, France at age 82. When a pioneer in a profession dies at an advanced age, one generally has to go back many decades to find his last contributions. This was not the case with Ben Graham. The cover of the then current issue of the Financial Analysts Journal (the September/October issue had gone to press only shortly before his death) had the portrait that adorns this publication. The lead article ended with Ben's exhortation consistently stressed for half a century: "True investors can exploit the recurrent excessive optimism and excessive apprehension of the speculative public."

User reviews about this book
This book shows there was a long stretch of time Graham himself didn't beat the market without GEICO. It's really hard to beat the market over time.
Great depiction of Graham
This book was insightful and concluded Graham's endeavors well. Thanks.
