A compilation of Buffet's philosophies about investing and wealth told through anecdotes and quotations. A quick and very interesting read.

Whilst there is a lot to admire about Buffet, I didn't come away with much in the way of new insights about the man or his investment style, and the fawning style of the book is wearing. I was left with the impression that whilst Buffet is obviously a fabulous long term investor, he is rather controlling and sensitive to criticism, and that his self-deprecating style and frugality are perhaps a little too self conscious. It is, thankfully, a fairly short book.

Very good book. Gave me a whole new look at Warren. Amoung the things he said, one that I found very interested was that if there were 600 companies like Burkshire hathaway no one would need to pay taxes. Another think I found interesting was that he believed that he was better at making money instead of spending, hense the reason he gave so much to Bill Gates

Great book of quotes that can help the reader understand Warren Buffet's sense of humor and the way he sets priorities or thinks of companies and products....
