Publisher's Summary

"With enough insider information and a million dollars, you can go broke in a year."

"What I am is a realist. I always knew I'd like what I'm doing. Oh, perhaps it would have been nice to be a major-league baseball player, but that's where the realism comes in."

"If a graduating MBA were to ask me 'How do I get rich in a hurry?' I would not respond with quotations from Ben Franklin or Horatio Alger, but would instead hold my nose with one hand and point with the other toward Wall Street."

"Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway."

Over the years, as Warren Buffett's influence and affluence have grown, one thing has remained the same - his unpretentious, honest, and optimistic approach toward business and life. Now you can discover life's little secrets of success as revealed by the world's greatest investor. In this wise and winning collection of quotes, writings, and favorite sayings, Warren Buffett speaks on diverse subjects such as investing, the Internet economy, family and friends, running a business, honesty, teaching, paying taxes, and much, much more. It also examines the thinking that prompted the second richest man in the world to give 85 percent of his wealth to the first richest couple (Bill and Melinda Gates) to distribute to charity.

Assembled by best-selling author Janet Lowe - and updated to reflect Buffett's life over the past decade - this audiobook includes a wealth of previously unpublished material. This unprecedented peak into the financial genius' wildly profitable philosophy is often surprising, always intriguing, and sparked throughout by Buffett's unique combination of savvy business smarts and wry wit.

    ""The Will Rogers of Investing""

    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.

    Story
    "Interesting"
    Would you try another book from Janet Lowe and/or Sean Pratt?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Already reading a few books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Pratt?

    Don't know enough narrators to recommend one.


    What did you take away from Warren Buffett Speaks that you can apply to your work?

    Stick to a simple philosophy and trust your instincts. Research, research, research!

    "Worth the price"
    Where does Warren Buffett Speaks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.

    "Thumbs Up"

    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!

    "Enjoyably informative and captivating!"

    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!
