Book Recommendations

Recently, Morningstar asked its readers for book recommendations. Many investors will tell you about a specific book that they have read that changed the way they invest and helped them on their road to financial success.

The recommendations were to be aimed at anyone; it could be a recommendation aimed at beginning investors or at seasoned proffessionals. The goal was to give fellow readers ideas about some of the best investing books available.

Below is a list of book recommendations (listed in alphabetic order) that you might want to consider to help you own investment planning or to give to someone else as a gift.
