Lesson 41: The 26 Best Books on Stock Market Investing

We’ve gathered the outstanding books below based on our own reading experience, browsing Amazon reviews, and consulting popular lists.

They’re organized based on their topic, such as value investing, psychology of investing, Wall Street history, etc.

Some are focused on picking the best stocks, others cover stock investing history, and others help you understand the psychology behind smart decision making. 

We don’t necessarily agree with all the investing strategies and perspectives shared in the books below, but we wanted to provide a wide range of ideas so you could make up your own mind. 

While this list isn’t meant to be exhaustive, we think it’s a solid start. If there’s anything you think should be added, let us know here!
