6、《约翰.亚当斯》，Biography of John Adams by david mccullough
7、《约翰逊传, 通向权力之路,参院之主>,The Path to Power (The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Volume 1) (Robert Caro罗伯特•卡洛)
I loved Caro’s book – I thought it was very well done. I think reading his biography on LBJ is very important for anyone who wants a view into the human condition. LBJ never told the truth when a lie would be better. This is the way he went through life. He had a high intellect and extraordinary energy and did a lot of good along with the bad. I’m not sure he didn’t do more good than bad. But I think it’s an appalling life to lie as much as LBJ. What I said at Berkshire meeting about the robber barons applies here: “When he’s talking, he’s lying, and when he’s quiet, he’s stealing.” Charlie Munger, 2004 Wesco Annual Meeting

I must confess that I am a hopeless lover of biographies and autobiographies. With that caveat in mind I found this book on the life of Mr. Rockefeller intriguing. The life he lived, the company he created, and his management style are all worth studying. I also found it an interesting case study on monopolies and I found myself contrasting the situations of Standard Oil and Microsoft often.

"It's a very interesting book for a certain academic type". - 2001 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting
芒格认为挑选股票是处世艺术的一个分支，要将投资视为处世能力的一部分来理解。芒格不但十分喜欢在历史传统等方面对国家的兴衰贫富演变作了精湛而深刻的分析的书籍，而且十分喜欢经济学，特别是认为经济学是“the queen of the soft sciences in many respects”,因此，他推荐了一些社会发展史、心理学、管理学或者综合学科的著作。
Guns, Germs,gun and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond(戴蒙德)，

This important book examines how wealth and culture intertwine over time and the effects both can have on nations. It provides a thoughtful, rational explanation of why various cultures that possess certain advantages never have become world powers.

the single greatest book on investing in my opinion
40、《价值再发现--走进投资大师本杰明》，The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham ：Selected Writings of the Wall Street Legend by Janet lowe（珍妮特•洛尔）
Views on Ben Graham's Ideas :The idea of a margin of safety, a Graham precept, will never be obsolete. The idea of making the market your servant will never be obsolete. The idea of being objective and dispassionate will never be obsolete. So Graham had a lot of wonderful ideas.
I liked Graham, and he always interested and amused me. But I never had the worship for buying the stocks he did. So I don't have the worship for that Warren does. I picked up the ideas, but discarded the practices that didn't suit me. I don't want to own bad businesses run by people I don't like and say, "no matter how horrible this is to watch, it [the stock] will bounce by 25%." I'm not temperamentally attracted to it.
41、《怎样选择成长股》,Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits ,Conservative Investors Sleep Well,Developing an Investment Philosophy Phil Fisher(费舍尔)
