    I tend to like these “dry” books. Please count me in!

  5. Paul S says:

    Fyi, the video link (which appears as a red X) in the Feedburner email leads to a real estate website. Or maybe it was an ad in the email. Just mentioning it in case it was due to your experiment with Video postings.

  6. Ryan says:

    Keep up the good work Preet.

  7. Jesus says:

    Count me in. Good idea the video blog.

    Technical? Dry? That’s my kinda book! Count me in.

  9. Marianne O says:

    I’d be interested to see how Graham’s comments from pre-Depression match up with the finance world today. I’d guess not much has really changed.

  10. Christopher Hylarides says:

    I like my drinks dry, so if I don’t win I’ll just buy the book. :-D I already have Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor and they are fascinating insights.

  11. Brian says:

    Ben Graham, the father of value investing. I have yet to read Security Analysis. Count me in please!

  12. Henry says:

    I am in. However, I did look at the book in Chapters and I found it not as useful as The Intelligent Investor.

    Great site, I would love to have the Graham Book. I’ve read the Intelligent Investor and it’s changed my mindset. I’m much more focused and patient than I have ever been in my stock purchases. .
