This is a classic book, first published in 1973. The 9th edition just came out this year. Every investor, whether you believe in market efficiency or not, should read this book at least once.

Simply put, the market may not be perfectly efficient at all times, but it’s efficient enough to make it very difficult and costly trying to beat it.

I enjoyed and learned from them.
