Review
Jeremy Utton chairman, Analyst Investment Management Buffettology was a revelation and by far the best book ever written about Warren Buffett's investment techniques. Simple, clear, and wonderfully effective in practice, it put us on a whole new track to the creation of long-term stock market wealth. My copy never leaves my desk. Now I have to make room for another because The New Buffettology is an equally groundbreaking, must-have book for all serious investors.
Business Week A probe inside the head of a financial genius.

Book Description
Warren Buffett is known as the billionaire investment expert of the century and everyone would love to know the secret of his success. In his own words, Buffett is just a regular guy who likes fast food, honest work, and people he can trust. Throw in incredible instincts, a genius for numbers, meticulous research, and an almost sure-fire investment philosophy, and you begin to understand how he's become a legend in his own time. With just a few thousands of dollars from relatives and friends, and by taking calculated risks with small companies and staying with them, he managed, almost single-handedly, to turn Salomon Brothers around. Giants like Disney, American Express, McDonald's, Gillette, and Coca-Cola have all been affected by Buffett's magic touch, and he owns a chunk of all of them. By thirty-one, BUffett had...


Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist
Roger Lowenstein

Book Review
Starting from scratch, simply by picking stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed one of the epochal fortunes of the 20th century -- an astounding net worth of $10 billion and counting. That awesome record has made him a cult figure. This illuminating biography reveals a man whose conscientiousness, integrity, and good humor exist alongside an odd emotional isolation. Buffett also masterfully traces his life: his enormously successful partnership; his early, inspired investments in American Express and Geico; his companionship and investment with Katharine Graham of the Washington Post; his role in the Capital Cities purchase of ABC; his unique relationship with his wife and mistress; and his rescue of the scandal-ridden Salomon Brothers.

From Publishers Weekly
HWhen Warren Buffett's partner, fellow Nebraskan and Berkshire Hathaway vice-chairman Charles T. Munger (now 76 years old) was a young boy, his hero was the independent Robinson Crusoe. As he grew older, he strove (and still strives) to emulate the creative thinker Benjamin Franklin, whom Munger admires most for his commitment to social causes and philanthropy. (Munger is one of the pioneering supporters of Planned Parenthood.) Lowe, who spent three intensive years learning about Munger's life and work, had the full cooperation of his subject for this biography and access to his vast network of admiring and devoted business associates, his family and his lifelong friends. She does a superb job of re-creating Munger's development from a respectable lawyer to a savvy investor, providing intricate details about the...

Book Review
Most people come to know of Warren Buffett through his ability to generate wealth. However, as Janet Lowe reveals in her book, Warren Buffett Speaks, Buffett is more than a money-making machine. Warren Buffett Speaks is a library of notes and quotes that have been collected over the years, aimed at revealing the many aspects of the World's Greatest Investor--his wit, personality, and wisdom. The first half of the book deals with Buffett's view of life, family, and friends, while the latter half focuses on Buffett's investment philosophy and observations about the market. This book is a must for every Buffettologist.

Review

London Daily Telegraph
"This is the Buffett 'bible'...It provides the definitve story of his career."

Book Description
The theme of this fully revised biography about Warren Buffett is books, books, books. Many works directly related to Buffett or Berkshire Hathaway, as well as many indirectly related, are the focus. For example, a chapter about Procter & Gamble includes photos and information about books written about P&G. A good number of the more than 1,100 photos in the book relate to books to help move the story, indeed the odyssey, along. The muse for this odyssey is James Joyce's Ulysses. The cover is blue because the original cover of Joyce's masterpiece was blue. The back cover of the book sports a superb photo of Buffett and Bill Gates standing together at a golf outing.

From AudioFile
A primer to the investing style and philosophy of the most successful investor of all time, Warren Buffett, is co-authored and read by Buffett's daughter. In a straightforward and matter-of-fact tone, Ms. Buffett explains the principles that have allowed her father and his Berkshire Hathaway company to achieve extraordinary success. The book embraces his "selective contrarian" approach to investments. In Buffettology, cheap isn't necessarily a bargain, and a bargain doesn't always represent value. The program explains the discipline behind uncovering companies that have a durable competitive advantage but whose shares are undervalued in the market. The New Buffettology looks at the total value of enterprises and asks the question: Does this investment make business sense? S.E.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine--...

Real Warren Buffett: Managing Capital, Leading People
James O'Loughlin

From Publishers Weekly
Investors around the globe worship Warren Buffett, the "Oracle of Omaha," and British businessman O'Loughlin is no different. Buffett, after all, jostles with Bill Gates for the title of richest man in America and has built Berkshire Hathaway from a small textile concern into a multi-billion-dollar corporate mammoth. So how does he do it? O'Loughlin tackles the question enthusiastically, laying out Buffett's investing strategies, his management techniques and his unconventional wisdom. Much of it is already well known, of course, from Buffett's love of the cash-generating insurance business, to his hands-off managerial style, to his early passion for the ideas of value-investing guru Benjamin Graham. But the book is a useful distillation of everything business buffs know about the inscrutable Buffett. After the...


Warren Buffett Portfolio: Mastering the Power of the Focus Investment Strategy

Book Review
It's no secret that most mutual funds fail to beat the performance of the S&P 500. And if the pros can't beat the averages, it's not unreasonable to assume that most individual investors can't, either. Why? According to Robert Hagstrom, author of The Warren Buffett Portfolio, a big reason is the industry's emphasis on diversification. In the interest of minimizing risk, many investors have "become intellectually numb to its inevitable consequence: mediocre results." As a result, they wind up owning too many stocks and churn their portfolios unnecessarily (for example, the average mutual fund holds 100 stocks and turns over 80 percent of its portfolio annually). In The Warren Buffett Portfolio, Hagstrom shows how Buffett and others use the idea of focus investing to organize winning portfolios.

Unlike Hagstrom's first...
