Human emotion is one of the main obstacles to investing well. The prospect of getting rich quick – or losing everything – leads to wild emotions that override our better judgement.

So how can we find a reliable set of investing principles that insure us against substantial risk?

Benjamin Graham was an American economist, known as the father of 'Value Investing'.

In this classic book, the author advocates for a down-to-earth approach to investing, using a combination of low-risk bonds and ordinary stocks from leading corporations.

At the core of The Intelligent Investor is the 'margin of safety' – the idea that instead of aiming for stratospheric returns, you should ensure that you are never exposed to significant losses.

Now in a revised edition with a foreword by legendary investor Warren Buffett and commentary by financial journalist Jason Zweig, Graham's classic principles teach us to invest with prudence for the long-term.
