Charlie Munger Book List

“In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn’t read all the time — none, zero. You’d be amazed at how much Warren (Buffett) reads — at how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I’m a book with a couple of legs sticking out”.

Charlie Munger, Poor Charlie’s Almanack: The Wit and Wisdom of Charles T. Munger, Expanded Third Edition

 

In honor of The Daily Journal Conference we decied to update our Munger book list today – stay tuned for our notes and possible book recommendations there as we are at the event live – say hi to Raul if you are there and reading this

Although, he has never authored a book (I think), Charlie Munger has recommended a lot of books over the years. We were curious to find out how many in total and came up with 59 names. To our knowledge, no one has completed a record so vast and comprehensive, so we hope you enjoy and appreciate our work and please inform us if we missed any by contacting us info@valuewalk.com. Additionally, like Bill Gates, Charlie Munger focuses on a wide variety of topics, so this is not just investment books, and some names are out of the box – issues are vast and include investing but also science, history, politics and even fiction. We also want to mention that we earn an affiliate fee if you purchase the book through these links it’s not enough to buy a share of Berkshire A and probably not enough to afford a copy of  Berkshire B but hopefully enough to buy a coke.
