Stocks for the Long Run, by Jeremy Siegel.    Your history teacher had it right--the roots of the present lie deep in the past.  Speaking of deep, Siegel presents 200 years of stock market history, and he helps the reader make sense of this historical data.  Siegel, a Wharton finance professor, provides the reader exhaustive data on the most important financial variables that have contributed to historical stock market returns--namely earnings growth, dividend yield and valuation level.  He also segments his data in many useful ways, and he attempts to help define the attributes of attractive investment opportunities.  Indeed, putting his reputation where his mouth is (and drawing on the investment data in this book), Siegel published articles in 1999 and 2000 correctly warning of the extreme over-valuations in Internet and large cap growth stocks.  This definitive book, written in 1994 and updated in 1998, is as good as it gets for a historical perspective on U.S. stocks.  My guess is that almost all money managers have this comprehensive book sitting on their bookshelves.

"Stocks for the Long Run is a clearly written, neatly organized, highly persuasive exposition that lifts the veil of mystery from investing."
