From the Author:

Security Analysis is the bible of fundamental analysis. Originally published in 1934, the tome systematically lays bare the science of security analysis. Written with the assistance of cowriter David Dodd, Benjamin Graham's intellectual tour de force has yet to be equaled in the annals of investing. Written only a few years after the devastating stock market crash of 1929, Graham had one objective--to make the investment process as safe as possible using knowledge of key factors about the business.

Beginning with bonds and moving quickly to stocks, Graham and Dodd go over all of the angles. Articulating a comprehensive theory of fixed-value and common stock investment, they examine in detail the various factors that one should consider when valuing securities. Dividends, extraordinary items, depreciation, amortization, capital structure and balance sheet analysis are all described and defined in lurid detail. It is impossible to read Security Analysis and not come away with a deeper understanding of corporate finance and how it relates to investing.

On the downside, let's be frank--Security Analysis is not an easy book to read. However, it remains one of the key textbooks for communicating fundamental analysis to millions of MBAs, in spite of the fact that it first saw print 63 years ago. I personally believe that reading and understanding most of Security Analysis would make a great benchmark for determining whether or not you are ready to start investing your money in specific investments. Sure, Graham is very value-biased in his investment philosophy, but looking for growth without focusing on the price you are paying is the golden road to underperformance.

From the Back Cover:

"My Advice? Go back to Graham and do your best to take it from there."­Business Week

A classic. Those words can be applied without equivocation to the Security Analysis of 1934.

This book secured Benjamin Graham's stature as a Wall Street immortal. The carefully honed methods for finding undervalued stocks and bonds he described here have never been equalled. These methods have already outlived their author by more than 20 years.

But what of the original Security Analysis? In some ways, it too was immortal. Through five editions and nearly a million copies, it has been continuously in print for more than 60 years. With many additions and changes, the modern edition remains the investors' bible.

But this original 1934 First Edition has its own unique charm and style­­the special purity, elegance, and character of Graham as a man of letters­­that distinguishes it across six decades and shows why this book launched an investing revolution.

This authetic copy of the 1934 First Edition of Security Analysis gives you word for eloquent word the investing methods put forth by Benjamin Graham and his coauthor and follower, David Dodd, just five years after the infamous Stock Market Crash of '29. Its message today is just as vivid, just as lucid, and just as vital as it was in 1934. It's an investment in timeless wisdom and timeless value.
