Great Books To Self Teach Finance


I took finance in college but really would like to take my understanding further. Does anyone know of any decent material out there to get started? I will be getting my mba next spring and think I may want to concentrate in finance but want to see if I have the chops for it first.

Which reminds of a Steven Wright joke:

"I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where's the self-help section?"

She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now he's gone.

He's one of my favorite comedians. Ever

I bought powdered water. But I don't know what to add

I installed a skylight in my apartment. The people above me are furious.

A woman came up to me and said your socks dont match. I said yes they do. I don't go by color, I go by thickness.

I installed a sky light in my home. The people who live above me are furious

Read the WSJ. Do they still have it free in the hall at the business school? Financial Times, too.

He has a lot of great quotes. If there is one that might have a money board theme:

"I think it's wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly"

It's hysterical to me how many people want to reinvent the wheel with finances when 95+% of it hasn't changed since the 1800s.

I consult Graham's book before pretty much every single major financial decision I make.
