Michael Burry became famous (at least in investing circles) due to his bold bet against mortgage-backed securities in 2008 that was chronicled in The Big Short by Michael Lewis (later a movie). He’s been pretty quiet since but has resurfaced recently on Twitter due to his strong opinions on the pandemic lockdown.

Due to his reputation as an independent thinker, he was also asked to share his recommended book reading list by user @thesis_11. I like to collect book recommendations and add them to my Amazon wishlist, so here’s his response in case it gets deleted later (I added the links):

Intelligent Investor by Graham

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Fisher

Why Stocks Go Up and Down by Pike

Buffettology by Buffett and Clark

If you read these books thoroughly and in that order and never touch another book, you’ll have all you need to know.

For big picture,

Liar’s Poker
Buffett: The Making of An American Capitalist
When Genius Failed,
All the Devils are Here.

At a point, stop with books and just start reading 10Ks and Qs and proxies. In the same industry, compare 10Ks – it’s an easy way to get the nuances quick

I’m usually happy if I discover any books that I am not familiar with, and that’s the case here.
