I love stories about how people stay true to themselves and succeed. Warren was different from the beginning and he didn't try to change that. He accepted who he was and stayed true to his instinct while always maintaining the utmost integrity. The booked taught me much about the investing world, something I know little about, but its Warren Buffet's personal relationships that I liked hearing about the most. How he makes things work for him even when very unconventional. His relationship with his wife and kids and friends. I respect him very much after reading this book.
Spending months of someone's life to read 100 years old business papers to understand the cycle of capitalism and wishing to have the next ten years business papers delivered at one's door today has got to be the widest span macroeconomics analysis, as fundamental as it will ever get - Particularly coming from a preacher walking his talk, not your typical 'know better after' theory guru for ever star of a prestigious university alumni.
If you have an interest in business, you will love this book. If not, it may get boring at times.
The book is well-written and flows rather easily. The narrator does an excellent job of pulling the listener into the story.
I found the book very interesting. As I listened to it during my commute to work, I found myself not minding the 2 hour drive after all.
This book enlighten me to a whole new world of the way things work and how close I am to what I can truly accomplish. It wow'd me and brought tears to my eyes while giving my heart a sick feeling that is easily resolved.
20 minute drive twice a day. What better than listening to awesome books while driving?
More than 30 hours... Man a new record. Worth every minute of it! Read, and enjoy a humble story of the richest Mab on earth.
