I'm a big fan of "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds". There is a 100-page version with just major financial bubbles, and a 700-page version with all 8 Crusades, alchemy, and lots of other nonsense. It was written in 1849, so it misses more recent bubbles and most notably Charles Ponzi. It reads like it was written in the late 20th Century, with a clean writing style, not at all the florid purple prose you would expect from the 1800s. A very readable book.

Excellent list! John Train really did a wonderful job condensing so many different investors' philosophies and principles into a very accessible book. Huge fan of his work.

I don't short stocks. But definitely adding "The Art of Short Selling" to learn about detecting red flags.

Nice overview. You could add:

Robert Shiller - Irrational Exuberance

Russell Napier - Anatomy of the Bear

Paul Krugman - The return of depression economics

Ray Dalio - The changing world order

Peter Elkind - The smartest guys in the room

Hi Rei!

I was looking into a japanese stock, but it’s very hard to find any english reports on it. Even sharedresearch doesn’t cover the firm.

Do you have any suggestions on how to know more about the business?
