Publisher's Summary

Warren Buffett remains one of the most sought-after and watched figures in business today. He has become a billionaire and investment sage by buying chunks of companies and holding onto them, managing them as businesses, and eventually reaping huge profits for himself and investors in Berkshire Hathaway. The first two editions of The Warren Buffett Way gave investors their first in-depth look at the innovative investment and business strategies behind the spectacular success of living legend Warren E. Buffett. Tracing Warren Buffett's career from the beginning, Hagstrom told listeners exactly how, starting with an initial investment of only $100 Buffett built a business empire and has an estimated net worth of $44 billion. The Third Edition of The Warren Buffett Way will focus on the timeless principles and strategies behind Buffett's extraordinary investment success. There will be new chapters on the important distinctions between investment and trading and an examination of the most successful disciples of Warren Buffett. Some less important material will be deleted and the overall focus will be to create an edition that will stand the test of time, distilling Buffett's success formula in a way that will provide value to listeners for decades to come.

Suggest getting the print copy.

The book is more like a manual or text book so having a print copy will help with the various formulas and key points.

Practical as well as informative

Last couple chapters do case reviews of companies Warren invested in and why. Spares us of meaningless childhood memory details. Gets into the meat of evolution of Warren 's investing principals. Very practical if you want to think & invest like Warren.

Not for the casual listener

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who is very serious about reading financials and sincerely wants to do what is takes to try to beat the indexes.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, it dissected the elements of success behind Buffett's singular success. The author established a rubric and measured some of Buffett's key investments against this.

Great for those willing to learn from the best!

Great book on the tenants of Buffett's investing style as well as the history behind it. I really enjoyed how the book not only encompasses his story but also demonstrates the ideas of his own inspirations and idols as well as demonstrate important tenants from Behavioural Finance and comparisons to currently taught finance models. I guess the only caveat is that this is not a book for complete beginners as not all terms are spelt out for you. Definitely recommended for those who know at least a bit about investment/financial terminology and ideas.

One of the best book on Warren Buffett

There are tons of books in market on Warren Buffet but this one is the best. Author ensured the content is very specific and provides WB business analysis. Many other books depict WB as if some fancy movie character. But this one has filled with wisdom to take home.

One of the great investment books

This book teaches you one of the greatest investment philosophies. Everyone should learn it, though as Buffett states. If you cannot detach emotionally, or aren't able to do your homework. Stick to index funds, though reading this book should be required reading for anyone who invests no matter the strategy.

very very very dry book

It's a book on long-term investments in the stock market, follow the tenants of Warren Buffett. I didn't expect it to be very entertaining. but the book could have been much shorter had the last three chapters not been inserted for their Dickenson pay per word value, since they repeated earlier concepts introduced in the book. Although, the biographical chapters on Mr. Buffett were a nice addition.

Great book. Wrong medium. Missing notes

The book is great but there is a fair amount of subtle math involved and I had to pause/rewind quite often so probably it’s not the best format for the book.

Also, don’t know if it’s normal but the notes at the end are not read. I suppose it’s normal.

Only problem with that is that when I was reading my paper copy the notes included important clues about the math involved in the valuation of companies.

Fascinating insight into value investing

I'm brand new to investing and the stock market so there were a lot of lessons for me in this book. It took me a while to get used to the narrator. He is quite monotonous but the content is interesting so it's worth listening and paying attention.

Absolutely amazing and motivational

Great story through the life of Warren B., his first stocks and investments, and his performance in Berkshire hathaway! Very educational with the impact of Warren Buffet' s mentors😉 I recommend it to everybody who wants to see the real performance of the stock portfolio rather than speculation.

A way applicable to any serious investor

It is no limited to the vastly wealthy, it's a way that can be applied only if you commit to applying it.
I am certainly going to take this to heart as I go on my investment learning journey

Interesting

I definitely enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It provides a different view on investing. Some of the numbers went over my head a bit, but it wasn't impossible to understand if maths isn't your strong point

Insightful and lots of take away learnings

This book won’t make you rich just like a book on soccer won’t make you play in the premier league but it has definitely taught me how to be smarter with my shares and what to look for when investing in the future.
Great narration and flow.

This book will change your life - If you let it

Whenever somebody asks me "What book do you recommend for investing" this is my go to answer, which is usually met by.... But this is a story, I don't want a story I want facts... Investing is about the mind, and Warren Buffet has the greatest investing mind in the history of the world, hear his stories, understand the way he ticks... This book will ignite that investing flame within you.

For me, it was bland listening.

Factual, but monotonous in delivery.
Kind of reminded me of the teachers voice in Charlie Brown cartoons with no tonal variations.

Actually quite disappointed with this book as I anticipated so much more.

A must listen/read

An awesome listen... if you're not a numbers person (like me) it can get a bit confusing at times but overall the principles and general ideas are conveyed very well.

Keep your Notes App open while you listen or a pen and paper will do...

Good overview of investing principles

Bit repetitive and long winded in parts. However, it helped reinforce many important principles of patient long term investing and was a refreshing change from the noise and hype of the daily market news cycle. Clear and steady narration. Definately worth reading / listening if you want to learn about investing.
