I don't buy the idea that you have to be an accountant to be a good investor. Seems to me that kind of thinking is exactly the myth that
The Motley Fool, and Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, etc... put to rest.


Further reading is always a good thing. The more understanding the better, but
"Investing isn't a game where the guy with an IQ of 150 beats the guy
with an IQ of 140..."

You don't need any special training to be a successful investor. You just need a good ability to judge character, and recognize a good product when you see it.

As Warren Buffett puts it good opportunities will be so obvious that you don't need to do a lot of digging through reports.
