My past experience with the magazines that I used to purchase for entertainment ie Two Wheels, Waves, Tracks, Rock, Wilderness, was that they pretty much rarely had any substance to them. Once i subscribed to API but found that I didn't feel like I was getting much value from it, and I didn't continue my subscription. I accept that to educate yourself you must read, further I actually like reading and discovering knowledge and having the lightbulb go on. However there is a lot of choice when it comes down to investing related magazines, API, Smart Investor, You Trading Edge, The Economist etc etc. Subscribing to all of these is going to cost (I also accept that you need to spend $$$s to learn) So my question is, which magazines to do religiously read and why ?
