The Battle for Investment Survival

The Battle For Investment Survival

This week’s book of the week is The Battle For Investment Survival by Gerald M. Loeb. Three things struck me about this book.

First, much like Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, this book is amazing in that it still applies today despite being written between 1935 and 1957. These lessons are truely timeless.

Second, because it was written so long ago, the language was very difficult to understand. It took me more effort to read this than most books do.

Third, and most notable, was that the title of the book puts the reader in a defensive mindset. Loeb maintains this defensive focus throughout the book and continually reminds the reader that investing is a fight to survive.

What are some things you learned from this book?
