I really enjoyed this book. Learning what makes Warren Buffett ticks was fascinating, especially when you consider the dynamics of his business relationships versus his personal relationships and how they influenced his decisions. The Snowball is a definite must read.
While 37 hours is quite the commitment, Snowball proved to be a very enjoyable and rewarding listen. Alice Schroeder provides a detailed account of Warren Buffett's entire life, from childhood to present day. I especially enjoyed the frank portrayal of what Warren liked and disliked. At many points throughout the story, the listener feels like they are Buffett and begins to view the story as being told from Buffett's own mind. This is not a book on financial advise or fundamentals of investment. While there are many details provided to satisfy the financially minded, this book is primarily a biography of one of the greatest investment gurus of all time.
The narrator is easy to listen to and makes every attempt to fully immerse herself in the reading. I especially liked her attempts at imitating the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
This is an extremely lengthy, extremely well researched and thorough account of Warren Buffett's life at both personal and professional levels. By the end of it you have a substantial understanding of his character, values, the way he works, basic principles of investing that he always comes back to. An excellent way to get very acquainted with this individual. This book must have taken an enormous amount of time to research. At times it feels there are too many details though and the descriptions can be very drawn now. Some of the writing style honestly falls a little flat and at times feels awkward or repetitive (biographies by Edmund Morris have spoiled me!). But the great parts absolutely make it worth it; a life enriching book for sure.
I never bothered to read about Mr. Buffett, as I assumed it would teach me about things that I would be unable to apply or already know.
Instead it is a fascinating recount of 100 years of financial and political history from the perspective of a person that have both feet on the ground. It is a great story with lots of little insights, but most of all a long perspective and thread of our modern times
