Terrible. Numerous mistakes throughout the book, such as mis-definition of the Kelly criterion. Misleading to the layman reader, and provides no new information to the experienced investor. At numerous times I wondered whether the author himself actually understands Buffett's approach or is just filling in a narrative pieced together using hindsight bias.
