Bait and Switch

When I read the words, "principles from the Sage of Omaha", I presumed there would be some original work. I wasn't expecting Warren Buffet to write the book, but I did presume given the title "Warren Buffett" in large font and capped letters that we good get something from him besides a cut and paste strategy from his Stockholders Annual Reports. I didn't even expect the book to be riveting, but I would have assumed that we could get something fresh and not just warmed over press releases. Really, quite a disappointment.

OK

If you are into reading about Warren Buffett this is a valuable (in parts) listen. However it can get repetitive and as much information can be gained from more other interesting publications.
