Expecting to find nuggets of wisdom gleamed from the life of a billionaire? You can count them on 1 hand. Those 'nuggets' are buried deep in long boring swaths of useless information. A dictionary would be more entertaining and enlightening. I give this book my lowest recommendation, which is disappointing because I am a fan of the great Buffet. But you can't pay homage to a man by listing the most mundane facts of his life for 37 hours straight. This ranks among one of the worst books I've read in my entire life and I highly recommend you do NOT buy this book. Instead look for youtube videos of Buffet doing speeches, all his nuggets of wisdom are in there (and you wont lose 37 hours of your life to get them).
I would cut 95% of the book. There was no drama, too much unnecessary facts. Yes life can be boring, thats not why you buy a book, even a biography. This book is a tomb of the unnecessary.
As a newspaper owner Im surprised Warren let a book this bad hit the press.
No fluff, raw knowledge dump from someone who has been there done that
You are not a lottery ticket.
Look for market unification not intersection
One of the best books I've read on business.
