Hi ITAWealth,

I imagine that's your blog and have since edited it, as 'Not Found' error appears. Having started reading about investing three years or so ago, and am currently in my second year of investing I haven't read a huge load (around 30 books) but here are my top ten in no order:

The Successful Investor: What 80 Million People Need to Know to Invest Profitably and Avoid Big Losses by William J. O'Neil

The Motley Fool Investment Guide: How the Fool Beats Wall Street's Wise Men and How You Can Too by David Gardner (humour in their books, like Peter Lynch, so you want to keep on reading for amusement purposes as much as educational)

Beating the Dow by Michael O'Higgins (old school methods)

A Beginner's Guide to Short-Term Trading: Maximize Your Profits in 3 Days to 3 Weeks by Toni Turner (just to explore all aspects of investing, but still avoiding day trading!!)

Fundology: The Secrets of Successful Fund Investing by John Chatfeild-Roberts (again to look at other types)

Beating the Street by Peter Lynch

Paths to Wealth Through Common Stocks by Philip A. Fisher

One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch

How to Trade In Stocks by Jesse Livermore (brilliant for emotional control)

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings by Philip A. Fisher (classic)

Not a list of unheard of authors!!

Back to your list. What was it?
