Reading List

We are often asked, “What are you reading?” or “What would you recommend?” on a specific topic. In an effort to answer these questions, we have created a reading list of books and short reviews, separated by topic. Some titles are sorted into multiple categories. Not all of these books are recent or popular; some are classics in the field and provide critical insights for investors.

You can read our review by clicking the book title. Each review, written by members of Confluence, offers a synopsis of the work and comments about its reading difficulty and appropriate audience. Books that we consider seminal are marked with an asterisk (*).  A link to a printable document listed alphabetically by author can be found at the bottom of the page.

This list will expand over time. It is our hope that the list and reviews will help our friends, investors and clients better understand the world and investing climate.
