The formula as described by Graham, is as follows: Value = Current (Normal) Earnings x (8.5 + (2 x Expected Annual Growth Rate) Where the Expected Annual Growth Rate "should ... market research, surveys and trends

The original chapters are intact, but with footnoted comments by Zweig. Moreover, he provides his own commentary on each chapter contents in a separate chapter following each original chapter. He provides extensive research, charts, ... market research, surveys and trends

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Good stock investing courses and books? - Yahoo! Answers
The single best general investing book is "The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need" by Andrew Tobias. Read it, re-read it, pay attention. Seriously.

Next, I have found the "for dummies" series a good overview of many different subjects, so check out "Stock Investing For Dummies." ...
