With nearly a million copies sold, "Security Analysis" has been
continuously in print for more than sixty years. No investment book
in history had either the immediate impact, or the long-term
relevance and value, of its first edition in 1934. By 1951,
seventeen years past its original publication and more than a

in the first two editions of "Security Analysis" reached new
heights in the third edition. In words that could just as easily
have been written today as fifty years ago, they detail techniques
and strategies for attaining success as individual investors, as

shareholder value and transparency for those investors.

relevant than ever in tumultuous twenty-first century markets--and
allow you to own the third installment in what has come to be
regarded as the most accessible and usable title in the history of
