    I have been trying to read/learn as much on these forums as possible, but obviously an online forum is only one avenue for learning and insights into the world of investment and finance. I was just wondering if there are any books out there that people highly recommend that had a significant positive impact on their understanding or success with investing?

    A few books that I have seen recommend on various sites already include:

    "Think and Grow Rich" - Napolean Hill
    "The Richest Man in Babylon" - George Clason
    "The Intelligent Investor" - Ben Graham
    "Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist" - Roger Lowenstein
    "The New Buffettology" - Mary Buffett
    "Your Money and Your Brain" - Jason Zweig
    "Trump Strategies for Real Estate" - Donald Trump
    "The Millionaire Next Door" - Thomas Stanley
    "Your Money or Your Life" - Joe Dominquez
    "Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits" - Phillip Fisher
    "Trust Magic" - Dale Gatherum-Goss

    Does anyone have anymore to add?

    I come from the passive index fund side of investing and I'd strongly recommend "A random walk down Wall Street" by Burton Malkiel.
