Warren Buffett—widely considered the most successful investor of all time—has repeatedly acknowledged Benjamin Graham as the primary influence on his investment approach. Indeed, there is a direct line between the record-shattering investing performance of Buffett (and other value investors) and Graham’s life. In six books and dozens of papers, Graham—known as the "Dean of Wall Street"—left an extensive account of an investing system that, as Buffett can attest, actually works!

This biography of Benjamin Graham, the first written with access to his posthumously published memoirs, explains Graham’s most essential wealth-creation concepts while telling the colorful story of his amazing business career and his multifaceted, unconventional personal life. The author distills the best from Graham’s extensive published works and draws from personal interviews he conducted with Warren Buffett, Charles Brandes, and many other top US and global value investors, as well as Graham’s surviving children and friends.

Warren Buffett once said, "No one ever became poor by reading Graham." Find out for yourself by reading Carlen’s lively account of Benjamin Graham’s fascinating life and time-tested techniques for generating wealth.

Graham (1894-1976), was a mentor to such superinvestors as Warren Buffett, who still recommends his The Intelligent Investor (1949). Market analyst/author Carlen introduces Graham as a contrarian thinker who had as great an influence on Wall Street as Albert Einstein had on physics. The biography covering his life (interesting even for non-investors) and value-investing philosophy features interviews with Graham and Buffett, photos, a glossary, and reference notes.
