A Random Walk Down Wall Street
by Burton Malkiel
A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton Malkiel is a great book for getting a handle on how markets operate, recommended by many finance professors as the place to start to understand finance. It’s a great introduction to the whole process of investing and whether it is possible consistently to outperform the market.
Another big service A Random Walk Down Wall Street performs is that it teaches you to develop a sceptical attitude to financial service professionals in general, and fund managers in particular.

Favourite Books, recommended by Sophie Roell
It goes without saying that I have more than five favourite books and some important ones are missing from this page (even though I’ve cheated and included six). I suppose the nonfiction ones are books that opened doors for me in some way or enabled me to see the world more clearly, including professionally. The fiction ones are ones I was completely overexcited about when I read them.
