“The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think — rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.” ~ Bill Beattie.
This is the very purpose of Official Asset’s University of Value Investing and Multidisciplinary Thinking. What you’ll learn here is how to think and make sensible decisions as an investor. Education is completely free in this university (well, almost) and for everyone who is willing to soak in the learning. So just dive in and explore.
Some texts are to be read, some to be re-read multiple times. These super-texts reveal new insights every time you read them. Find here a comprehensive list of such super-texts on value investing and related subjects.

Charlie Munger said this in a speech to USC Law School Commencement in 2007
“I constantly see people rise in life who are not the smartest, sometimes not even the most diligent, but they are learning machines. They go to bed every night a little wiser than they were when they got up and boy does that help, particularly when you have a long run ahead of you.”
In short, you have to be a learning machine to thrive in today’s world. One great way is to read a lot. So take what you see above just as the first step in your learning journey..and then as Mark Twain said – “Explore. Dream. Discover.”
