"An extraordinarily useful account of the methods of an investor held by many to be the world's greatest." (The Wall Street Journal)
This is one of the best investment books that I have read. In fact having read this book prompted me to purge many other investment books from my collection that unnecessarily complicate the investment tennants and digress the budding investor into either too many esoteric investment domains or leave the investor with too much vague information without the specifics.
Buffet's investment tennants are solid, relatively simple and timeless and are widely applicable to different investments, during different economic conditions and transcend national borders. Of course the would-be Buffet-like investor must embrace the psychological mindset too for the invstment technique to be usable.
Am not sure why the other reviewers ranked this program low - for in my opinion, they either do not understand investment or do not buy into the Buffet-approach to investment - both their losses not hopefully yours.
On a final note, the program is excellently narrated and held my attention for all the 8 hrs and 45 mins (no book that long had held me rapture).
So well done Mr. Hagstrom and Audible for bringing us this excellent program.
If you are serious about investing and if you are disciplined, you would be doing yourself a great dis-service not to read/listen to this book. It is an excellent insight into Warren Buffet and his thought processes.
I will have to listen to this one many times to get everything out of it. I'd pay $100 for this title knowing what I know now.
It has received my "MUST READ" rating.
Great information everyone needs to control their own investments in the stock market. This book is a great opening into the mind of a genius. Not only will you learn how Buffet has done it, he'll teach you how too.
This book presents Buffet as he thinks and how he has made his decisions of success. If you think you know it all, don't read this book. If you are open to learning and creating a solid foundation of investing, please take the challenge. Do not expect a roller coaster ride of excitement. More so this read will present a feeling of getting your self out of bed in the morning, putting on your sneakers to run. At times, it can be challenging with financial concepts but DO NOT let this stop you. Just understand you have some more to learn. Buffet is currently the second richest man in the world; I guess he has done a "couple" things right in the past 50 years. It will be no skin off of Buffet's nose if you read this book or not.
It's a must read book for any investor. I would suggest do not start investing unless you read/listen this book and if possible "intelligent investor" by benjamin grahem
This is a book you will want to listen to several times. What is there to learn comes in several layers. The narrator does a very good job. Both entertaining and insightful, this is well worth the money or the credits.
Lots of good info, not really sure how to apply it without significant thought but then again I guess that's what they are trying to stress, look at the #'s rather then going with a whim :)
Reader was fine, the forumla stuff was hard to follow while driving but otherwise good book.
As a novice investor, I had taken a gambling mentality to stock trading until I read my first book on Warren Buffett. It was like an awakening and completely changed and educated me on how to look at stocks. I am forever grateful for the existence of this grand master.
This book is superbly written and I also like the narrator's slightly dreamy style. Overall, a very educational and enjoyable experience.
You need to have more than average knowledge in order to like the book. This book isn't suited as a audiobook, to complicated to listen to in a car.
Didn't give me as much as Donald Trumps books.
This title provides significant historic detail and is not structured as a "How To" audio as the title suggests. The valuable pearls of wisdom are hidden in the detail.
I found this audio weakly structured and cumbersome.
