Jason Zweig, a WSJ columnist, is famous for writing the commentary for the most popular edition of the investment classic — The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. Warren Buffett claims that when he read Graham’s book in 1949, it changed his life forever.
With his unique writing style, Zweig made Graham’s book doubly valuable by bringing in the perspectives from today’s market. In his commentary, Zweig drew parallels between Graham’s examples and today’s financial headlines, which gives readers a deeper understanding of Graham’s principles in the modern context. Zweig is a history buff and his genius is in bringing in historical perspectives on today’s seemingly important financial news.
In Sept 2016 issue of VIA, I had written about Jason Zweig’s other book Your Money Your Brain which was based on insights from the field of behavioural finance. The one I am going to talk about in this edition of Book Worm is Zweig’s latest piece of artful work — The Devil’s Financial Dictionary.
