Poor Charlie's Almanack by Charlie Munger

This is one of the best books I've read by far. It's full of wisdom from Charlie's business experiences and his teachings.


Charlie is very big on human behavior and what drives us to do silly things. He talked a lot about the psychological aspect of this in his famous Harvard speech called The Psychology of Human Misjudgment which you can download from the "downloads" section of my website if you haven't read it yet.


Peter Kaufman put this book together by gathering a large amount of Charlie Munger's speeches and writing through his career and compiled it into this book so in this book you will a lot of great ideas included from that speech. You will also find a great commencement speech on investing that Charlie gave to USC and a great speech that Charlie gave to Harvard about how to avoid misery in life.


Charlie gives a lot of great advice on how to live a great life and he does by being very entertaining because of the interesting stories he shares from his business experience and because of his blunt or "tell it like it is" demeanor. After reading this book, I came away with so many great ideas from it that I couldn't fit all of them on one page.


I had to create a pdf and upload it below.
