Each year, there are hundreds of new investment books published. Some of these books claim to have cracked the code for get-rich-quick investing. Other books claim to be full of “tried and true” principles. Some books are all about playing the market right now, and others are all about playing the market for the long term. Some of these books are written by those who have had great success in the stock market, and other books have been written by those whose portfolio you would not like to have yourself. So the question becomes: How do I know which books are the right books? The answer to that question is simple: forget about the books published recently, and go back to the ones that have stood the test of time.
