What Jason Zweig reads … and why

Jason Zweig (Amazon.com)

The dean of personal finance writers in the United States, if not the world, is the Wall Street Journal’s Jason Zweig. In a recent instalment of his personal blog, Zweig presents many of the financial books that have influenced him and that he recommends. They include both financial books and non-financial books, which is quite consistent with the philosophy underlying this site (the Financial Independence Hub).

Several of the titles, but not all, are also in my own library. Below I list some of Zweig’s picks. All titles in red are live links to their respective listings at Amazon.com:

Financial:

Where are the Customers’ Yachts?

The Money Game

Against the Gods

A Random Walk Down Wall Street

The Intelligent Investor (on my shelf too, introduction is by Jason Zweig himself)

And finally, Zweig says, “Anything Bill Bernstein Writes.”

Since I have most of Bernstein’s books, here they all are. Take your pick, but I list them from top to bottom in the order I’d recommend reading them:

The Four Pillars of Investing

The Intelligent Asset Allocator

The Investor’s Manifesto

If You Can: How Millennials Can Get Rich Slowly

Rational Expectations: Asset Allocation For Investing Adults (a series)

Non-Financial:

Montaigne’s Essays

Skeptical Essays (Bernard Russell)

How to Lie with Statistics

How to access 75 more recommended financial books

By the way, my own recently published Kindle e-book, A Novel Approach to Financial Independence (U.S. edition), contains a long list of many of the books in my own library. At the end is a bibliography called A Peek into Theo’s Kindle (Theo is one of the financial advisor characters in the novel). It lists roughly 75 books I recommend, ranging from Inspirational to Investing, Retirement and Entrepreneurship. As above, most of the titles include live links to the actual Kindle titles at Amazon.
