Publisher's Summary

Warren Buffett is a legend primarily for his investment philosophy. He isn't concerned about the intricacies of the market, but instead focuses on the quality of the companies Berkshire Hathaway stands behind. Yet we know little about the leaders of the companies that Buffett handpicks.

In Behind the Berkshire Hathaway Curtain: Lessons from Warren Buffetts Top Business Leaders, author Ronald W. Chan founder and CEO of Chartwell Capital offers a behind-the-scenes look into the careers of Berkshire Hathaway executives who have both directly and indirectly contributed to the conglomerate's success.

Drawing on exclusive interviews from Berkshire leaders, Chan vividly describes how an exceptional group of managers has built a culture of achievement. With a keen eye for detail, he shows how their lessons can be applied for career success and personal fulfillment. Brimming with practical advice, the book will appeal to both executives and employees wanting to improve their leadership skills and work performance.

Covering the career and life decisions of David Sokol of MidAmerican Energy, Cathy Baron-Tamraz of Business Wire, Dennis Knautz of Acme Brick, Randy Watson of Justin Brands, Stan Lipsey of Buffalo News, and many more, the book offers a wide range of business insights, philosophies, and strategies directly from leaders at the top of their fields.

Too many quotes in the reading!!

The book has great and inspiring stories. Unfortunately, the reader kept reading out "quote quote quote...." was really annoying and disruptive for the story telling. Had to decide to read the book myself instead of listening to it.

brackets

as much as i love the subject and the stories , i have to share somethings who really bothers me, as i was concentrating on the stories, the same concentration was interrupted by brackets " here and end of quotation brackets there"
I do anderstand that referrals to the autheurs is essentials but does it as to disminish the overall experience, of course i finished the book , but is it normal that i will always remember it as the brackets book?
