In an ever-changing stock market, investing can be tricky if you don't follow sound investment principles.
Inexperienced investors often think wealthy retirement is just around the corner, with a few years of 100% returns. Dreams can be destroyed.

But at least that is better than most fund managers, because only a small minority of these so-called professionals consistently outperform the markets.
I firmly believe the small investor can outperform them. At least, the thoughtful and dedicated investor can. Reading about profound investment philosophies is a great way to achieve superior ability. Books allow you to tap into the distilled experience and insight of key investors/thinkers.
