This is a great story about a fascinating man. It is more of a generalization of financial advice. He is a man with great quotes. Many times quite funny. Loved it.
Liked the book because I like Warren Buffet. Book itself is tedious in spots, and only positive aspects of Buffet are presented. More character sketch and entertainment than investment insight.
I want to listen to more of Buffett
I learned that behind his success...he is fun!
Not sure. I really enjoyed the family history and exploration of the relationships. I also enjoyed hearing about Buffett's philosophies, however part of it read somewhat dry.
Already reading a few books.
Don't know enough narrators to recommend one.
Stick to a simple philosophy and trust your instincts. Research, research, research!
It would be hard to listen to this book and not gain enough wisdom pay many times over for this well packaged set of stories. Brilliant subject. Brilliantly written.

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Although the earlier reviews are split 50/50 the book was great. You got a sense of Warren and his world through the often funny text and constant focus on what makes sense. Well worth the credit!
I really enjoyed this book and took about 10 pages of notes! There were many great quotes, principles and experiences to learn from. I was completely new to Warren Buffett and came away from this book as an admirer of his work. His honesty and diligent, goal-oriented work are characteristics worth emulating in business ideas as well as lifestyle. The author did a very thorough job of representing the concepts with actual stories from Buffett's life.
If you are new to investing and curious about it, I highly recommend this book!
