Great summary of what Buffett's investing philosophy is about. However the author is in love with Buffett and fails to assess Buffett's investing record with a critical eye. Not so successful investments like Netjets were favorably discussed. Saloman Brothers wasn't even mentioned throughout the book. You would think Buffett is flawless after reading this book, except he is not. There is more to be learnt from his mistakes than his successes. Interesting book overall, recommend that you read it ...more

Good book....simple, straightforward, concise and dead-on in describing Warren Buffett's most important investment philosophies and practices. Prem Jain knows a lot about his subject....he created a class at Tulane University dedicated to studying the "Buffett way" of investing. As a professor and a successful individual investor, he also has the ability to convey his message in a most understandable way. If you are a Buffett adherent, this is a must read book.

This book explains that Buffett is not a value investor, as many people believe, but a Renaissance investor. This means he uses a full suite of investment philosophies based on what will work best. Easy to read, understand and has changed my ideas of how I approach investing in businesses.

It is good book to help you determine the value of company and determine the growth potential of company. Some chapters offer insight and put theory into practice. The con of this book is that Buffett never confirm the way he analyse the company as written in this book.

Some chapters are really interesting. 1) Success in retailing, manufacturing and utility 2) profitability and accounting. For me most interesting part was why buffet invested in utility company. Gives a fresh perspective to look at NTPC and Power grid.
