Book is a compilation of quotes basically, would probably be better off reading the books that they came from.

Great pieces of advice for anyone who is a manager or owns a business. This should be read often just to serve as a reminder on how to manage. This isn't a book in the typical sense, it's more of documenting quotes or sound bites on how to what two great business minds think about companies they have and will acquire.

Warren has some very practical advice in this book, and Peter did very well at choosing some very quality pieces of information. For investors, as well as leadership advice in general. Wouldn't hurt to recommend to the accountants either.

Some good teachings from Warren Buffet, presented in an interesting format, but, sincerely, not the book I was expecting. For someone who has read all of Buffets letters to investors, this books is just a recollection of some ideas and thoughts deemed relevant to Peter Bevelin.

If you want quick look into Buffets letters, this book is ok, but if you want something more profound, I would suggest simply reading Buffet's letters directly on his website.

Good book and quick delivery 👍

It is only book of quotes of Buffet by the author and not the lessons or explanations. The effort of the author is good but the price of 81 pages book to me is not worth so much
