10 Best Value Investing Books You Need To Read
To be a successful value investor means a commitment to keep on learning. This can be from other successful investors, or it can be from relatively unknown investors who bring fresh new ideas and insights to the subject. Most great investors I know maintain a healthy reading habit (over and beyond annual reports). Below are some selected value investing books that in my opinion add tremendously to a value investors’ arsenal, be it in form of theory or practical techniques, developing critical thinking, bringing new ideas and insights or in many cases merely providing a contrarian point of view that can be instrumental in balancing one’s perspective and outlook on the major emerging economic trends.

Before you become a value investor
It is said of value investing that either you get it or you don’t. Much of value investing has to come from within and in many ways it has to be an extension of your life philosophy. I would say that in order to become a good value investor, you need to survey the wider field of investing and eventually come to a conclusion that the value investing philosophy makes the most sense.
