This book is a monster. It would've been difficult to stick with it to the bitter end if it hadn't been so remarkably well written, and if the woman who reads it wasn't so superb. I couldn't seem to get enough of this book, although I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't glad it was finally over. All in all, highly recommended for anyone interested in business, finance, or human nature. Warren, we've never met, but I feel like I know you now.
If you want to know about Warren, who he is, where he came from, and what he did, this is the book to read. Even names the girls he liked while in elementary school! It does a great job of setting the tone for and the foundation of his life.
If you are looking for primarily his investment thoughts and theories, this book will not touch too deep on that. It describes in general though how he came to some of his investment theories and how they have developed over time.
Amazing! It's a HUGE book but worth it. Written so well. There was a ton of thought on how the book is organized and does such a great job throughout the book of bringing up past material and of previous chapters in a meaningful and applicable way.
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.
