Blue Ridge Capital Reading List

Originally posted on my blog Scott's Investments earlier today


From the market folly blog, Blue Ridge Capital's recommended Economics reading list:


Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman: A must-read by one of the most well-known economists out there.

The Lexus and the Olive Tree by Thomas Friedman: A book that deals with understanding globalization and argues that globalization (the Lexus) is "the central organizing principal of the post-cold war world."

Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt: With an introduction by Steve Forbes, this book is a great primer on economic thinking.

Eat the Rich by PJ O'Rourke: A tour of two years worth of economic practice, focusing on good capitalism and bad capitalism, among other things.


How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie: The "grandfather of all people-skills books." It details fundamental techniques and principles for dealing and interacting with people.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: Not only recommended by Blue Ridge, but by many other hedge fund managers out there, this book deals with philosophy of objectivism.

The Tao Jones Averages by Bennett Goodspeed: Touches on the mindset required to succeed as an investor.

The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff: Despite the somewhat silly title, this book examines what a Western Taoist is.

The Te of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff: Similar to the above, this book examines the Taoist embodiment of Te, or virtue.

Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny by Robert Wright: Address the convtroversial question of 'purpose in evolution.'
