Abstract:

Just as Albert Einstein transformed the physical sciences, Benjamin Graham permanently revolutionized the science of investment finance with boldly original thinking. In place of thinly disguised speculation, Graham introduced a highly lucrative empirical system that many billionaires and multimillionaires credit for their success. In The Einstein of Money, the first biography of Benjamin Graham written with access to his posthumously published memoirs, Joe Carle explores the core principles that served as the foundation for Graham's astonishing personal success in business and his lasting influence on past and present investment titans. These include such luminaries as Warren Buffet, Irving Kahn, Walter J. Schloss, William J. Ruane, and Charles H. Brandes. But Carlen goes further, using scrupulous research and detailed interviews conducted with Graham's surviving children, friends, and associates, as well as Graham's own reflections from his memories, to explore this fascinating figure and his timeless investing strategy.
