Very easy to read classic on how Peter Lynch picked winning stocks for his phenomenal run at Fidelity Magellan. Described is a method that individuals can use to beat the pros (but be careful here, just because you like the product, you still must do the research into the numbers). Has withstood the test of time, and qualifies as a must read.

While a great story in itself, this book does not have a direct reference to stock picking, except for the dramatic illustration of how growth can occur in top notch companies.
