I like to read biography of famous person in graphical book. And this time I read about Warren Buffett. I like the story and some parts tell how Buffett fail in his journey and he left it. And actually the failure is the end of his journey, but after all we can always remember him and his achievements.

I recommend this book to everyone who would like to know Warren Buffet; who want to learn investing; someone who is a graphic books lover, or someone who just wants to read an uncommon biography.
It is very unusual to find an illustrated biography of a businessman, let alone an investor. This probably owes to the fact that their lives are not full of action and drama, which constitutes a large chunk of graphic novels.

Salah satu cara penceritaan biografi yang menyenangkan itu adalah dikisahkan dengan jenaka~
Kalau tidak bisa, cara selanjutnya: dibikin komik!

Aku tadinya kurang tertarik dan gak tau soal Pak Buffet ini~ tapi pas nemu sepenggalan kisah beliau yang dijadiin semacam meme di net, jadi penasaran...

Komik ini menceritakan sepak-terjang Pak Buffet dengan seru.., sayangnya yang mengurangi keseruan itu justru ketidaktahuanku soal masalah dan istilah ekonomi ┬┴┬┴┤(・_├┬┴┬┴ *perlubelajarlagi*

Fast and easy read, with Jap anime styled characters and expressions that confuse me as to who the characters actually refer to. Of course, WB has that distinguishing feature in the later caricatures. Heavily Jap - dramatised. Finished in less than an hour on the ebook version borrowed through Overdrive.

Terjemahan Indonesianya banyak balon-balon kosong (maksudnya balon katanya gede, tapi tulisan/ kalimatnya cuman sebaris/ dua baris), entah sengaja disederhanakan atau bagaimana, yang pasti mengganggu saya...
Sementara ceritanya sendiri singkat dan berkisar pada beberapa pengalaman sukses Mr. Buffet.

Kehidupan Warren Buffet dari kecil hingga tua yang digambarkan secara singkat,tentang kepribadian orang yang sukses tapi tetap sederhana.

Walaupun komik tetap saja berat karena belum begitu mengerti istilah-istilah investasi

I thought it was a pretty neat idea, and cool way to get a snapshot of the life of the great Warren B. I thought the story was a little choppy and shallow at some points, but I really did like the illustrations. I kind of wish it was much longer with more detail.
