Just thought I would see if people wanted to post some recommended reading for the industry. Here are a few books which have made a significant impact to me personally, and I thought I would share for others.

1) Securities Analysis - Benjamin Graham & David Dodd
2) Intelligent Investor - Benjamin Graham
3) On Up on Wall Street - Peter Lynch
4) Common Stocks, Uncommon Profits - Philip Fisher
5) Buffet: The Making of an American Capitalist - Roger Lowenstein
6) The Art of War: Sun Tzu

Currently reading “Never Eat Alone” by Keith Ferrazzi, which I will reserve judgment until I have finished. Anyway, I would be interested in what others have to say on the subject.

365 Days of Jewish Values by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin

(The title might not be correct)     About 10 years ago I was visiting a Jewish friend of mine and he had this book in the guest room and I spent some time reading it.  There was one part that really stuck with me.   According to Judaism, the first question that a Jew gets asked when he is trying to get into heaven is whether he was ethical in his business dealings.    I firmly believe that we are in the business of ethics and the best way to build a successful practice is to simply always do what is in the clients' best interest.

The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

  It puts things into perspective.  In this profession we all need to be reminded what is truly important in life.
