It was sometime in 2005 when a close friend of mine gifted me Ben Graham’s The Intelligent Investor, knowing that I was working as a stock analyst and aspired to become a sensible investor (aspirations are always sensible, you see).
“Is this a good book?” I asked him.
“Seek for yourself,” he told me.
I read through the first few pages of the book, and it didn’t seem to catch hold of my attention, forget captivating me to any extent.
I realized Graham was the teacher of Warren Buffett, whom I’d first read about during my MBA in 2003 (not in the class, but in the library). But the book still did not interest me.
