To quote Janet Lowe's description of Graham's "Intelligent Investor" "This book was written for the people on Main Street rather than those on Wall Street". Laurence Sloan's insight into the future is astounding. He makes assumptions based on sound economic theory in the midst of the Great Depression and most of what he predicts actually comes true. I read it in 3 sittings and it was a refreshing change from the dry financial titles that I have read recently. Short on algebra, long on theory but a worthwhile read.
