No. of Recommendations: 3
Because no one has posted anything new in this board (I think they don't know what they are missing) since my last thread, I thought I would take this opportunity to make a followup. Since I am often behind in my reading, particularly on these discussion boards, I often feel my comments would be too late or too out of place for most of what I read. Since no one has posted anything new here for the past 3 months, perhaps this will not be too out of place.

First, I would like to thank Woodstove (I thanked him privately months ago) for his excellent post giving us the link to the Graham materials. What a gold mine!

As a result of reading these articles, I decided to read the 4th edition of Security Analysis. Although my understanding is that Graham was less involved in this edition than the previous ones, from reading background materials, including Graham's autobiography, I discovered that Graham was still very actively involved in the production of the 4th edition.

I would recommend the 4th edition to anyone wanting to read the book. I understand that Morningstar recommends the 5th edition, which was produced after Graham's death. I am not yet convinced I should make the time investment to read that edition, though.--Rockythecat
