It was very detailed and very personal. You finish the book feeling as though you know Warren personally and inspired to pursue your own dreams as passionately as he did his. Of course, the performance of the voice actor was flawless!
With any Audiobook close to 40 hours, there are several sections that are tough to get through. However, the insight and knowledge you gain on one of the world's most sought after financial minds is well worth it!
This biography of Buffett was far too uncritical and came across more as a hagiography than an even-handed examination of his life and business dealings.
I would be very suspect of Ms. Schroeder's approach and would look to other sources on a subject in addition to whatever she produces.
Read other biographies of Buffett.
update: it turns out that the brief first chapter was narrated by the author herself. the actual narration by Kirsten starts from second chapter and is delightful to listen to.
outdated review: (only applies to the first chapter of 5 minutes)
Kindle text to speech sounds better than this. the content itself is good. However, poor narration entirely defeats the purpose of buying audio books. Alexa on Echo sounds far far better and she can read all your Kindle books which are far cheaper than audio books
Well written and delivered. This book gave an unique insights into the life of world's most successful investor and one of the greatest philanthropist.
36h de détails sur les différentes acquisition de BRK c'est beaucoup pour une personne qui n'est pas dans le domaine de la finance. les portraits sont en revanche toujours très juste et bien dressé.
I loved it. I wish it included the billion dollar multi year leap option Warren put on and the Goldman bailout but other than that seemed incredible detailed.
