Got a finance geek on your gift list? Here are some of my favourites among the books I read and reviewed over the past year.
Winning the Loser’s Game by Charles Ellis. A classic now in its fifth edition, this book offers timeless strategies for successful investing by one of Wall Street’s legends. My review is available here.
The Elements of Investing by Burton Malkiel and Charles Ellis. Two authors who have penned enduring classics have teamed together to boil down investing to its basics. You can breeze through the book in a couple of hours but the lessons in it will take years to learn. My review of the book is available here.
The Big Short by Michael Lewis. As one commenter pointed out Mr. Lewis could make a book about his first communion engaging. Here he has such rich material to work with: a handful of money managers who foresaw the mortgage meltdown and made a bundle betting on it. My review of the book is available here.
