This book compiles the full, un-edited versions of every one of Warren Buffett's letters to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway. In addition to providing an astounding case study on Berkshire's success, Buffett shows an incredible willingness to share his methods and act as a teacher to his many students.
There have been critics who have written reviews on here that this book is no different than going online and printing out all of the shareholders letters and there are others that say that you should pick up Lawrence Cunningham's version because that version is editorialized and I am here to tell you that I have done all three, not because anyone has told me or I recommended it, but because I have thoroughly entrenched myself in the study of Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and Berkshire Hathaway and I will tell you this edition and book is an outstanding treasure and amazing addition to anyone's library, full of awesome information and knowledge about the inner workings of Berkshire Hathaway. I'm actually very sorry I didn't get it much, much sooner. I cannot recommend this book strongly enough...10 STARS!!!!!
I own a significant amount of berkshire stock and read this whole book. It is a long read, but well worth it: you learn all the essentials to the company and get the best investing advice possible for long term wealth accumulation. I have steadily grown more knowledgeable and wealthy thanks to Buffet's gracious sharing of his profound understanding of capital markets. Buffet's wisdom is much more valuable than the refuse they teach in finance school. If you believe you have to study how to become wealthy, as I most assuredly do, seize on the opportunity to learn from the master and order this book with rapidity and incorporate it into your investing life. I thanks my lucky stars every day for Buffet's intellectual generosity.
I got this for my dad who has owned BRK-A stock since the early 80's, and he loved it ... I gave it to him for Christmas and he barely put it down to open other presents :-)
Awesome book. Should have got the hardcover though.
You can get all of these letters for free on the Berkshire Hathaway website. However, I am a paper in hand kind of guy. And this book is a heck of a lot better than printing them off. I like to take notes and highlight text.
Mr. Buffett explains investing and business with a clarity that can only come from a profound understanding of his subject matter. Trying to follow his (and Benjamin Graham’s) guidance has made me a successful investor. Reading his letters is like visiting an oracle without having to guess at the meaning.
Thanks to Warren, all my clients and myself have way more money than had we invested in an S&P 500 index fund. We have owned BRKB since 1994!!
World Class education In business this book is 100 times more valuable then any MBA that you can pay for. With the fraction of the price
