“The Capitalist’s Bible is well-suited for individual investors hoping to glean anything that might prove beneficial to their portfolios, but it’s also perfect for students or devotees of economics…[It] is an admirable competitor for the title of [the capitalist’s] greatest tool.” —Better Investing
