There is nothing worthwhile reading in this entire book. I have read many financial books, including biographies of well known investors. This book reads like a sloppy wikipedia article (seemed like it was seriously written at a 2nd grade reading level). There are only a handful of facts about Warren's early life that keep getting repeated over and over. The "life lessons" are cliche after cliche with no concrete or truly inspirational ideas. Moreover, there is no author or publisher even listed within the entire book. This is clearly some sort of scam book haphazardly put together to earn a few bucks by enticing people to buy it by putting Warren Buffett's picture on the cover. Save your money, read his wikipedia page for more detailed history, and buy a real book about Warren Buffett.
This is one of those selfpublish "books" that really is just a long CNN article. It has 72 pages but 12 are almost completely blank and the font is huge and the pages are double-spaced, to try to fill as many pages as possible. There is nothing in here you could not find by googling Warren Buffett's top ten quotes, etc. Avoid and spend your money elsewhere.
While this book contains factual information, a majority of this information can be found through a quick google search. The book takes a brief look into buffets life but does nothing to truly outline any real strategy for investing. As a long term DGI investor, I would not recommend this book. While I am a DGI investor and have my own rules for investing, I am also an avid reader when it comes to financial books. This book does not provide knowledge into the financial market and more importantly buffest success. Instead, the books make it seem as if buffet picked stocks randomly out of a hat. You are better off reading a Wikipedia article on Warren Buffet or purchasing his book (while it is much longer, it is a better read) before spending money on this book.
Ok this is not a book for investors, if you are looking for a little book that beats, intelligent investor, how to trade options, look elsewhere. This is a great book for a 2nd or 3rd grader. Has fact, is historical and motivational but I would not call it a book on how to invest, or find stocks etc.
I found no author name, no publisher name; it only mentions "Made in USA".
The book has only summary on life, lessons and rules for success.
There are only 72 pages in whole book, which does not have the detailed stories.
This is quite an inspirational book which reveals the story of one of the most successful people on earth, Warren Buffet - his beginnings, his successes, his principles, and 25 quotes which illustrate his wisdom. I highly recommend it!
Warren Buffett is an interesting man, has had an interesting life and has been incredibly successful as an investor. He shares his life story and life lessons in this book. He knew as a child that he would be a wealthy man. The way he conducted his life, the opportunities that presented themselves, the people he surrounded himself with and the decisions he made early on, all contribute to what he has become and his wealth factor. I'd recommend the book to anyone interested in learning something of Mr. Buffett or his views on life.
I find Warren Buffet super interesting. I've watched several documentaries of his life. What I loved about this short book is that it was a snapshot of all of the ideas, quotes, and principles. I was able to read this book in one day. Easy to read, understand, and apply. I will definitely come back to this book of wisdom again and again.
This book is just over 50 pages and does not provide any insights from Warren Buffett himself or any detail into his career.
When reading this book it felt like I was simply reading a list of some of his most notable investments, in an attempt to provide some reflection and insight a simplistic lessons learnt summary was added to each section which felt like an attempt to pad out this brief book.
If you are interested in his career I would recommend reading the more detailed books available and avoiding this.
So just shy of £8 paid for this book.
It took me less than 45 mins to read.
The book is 72 pages long with large font as to fil the book with very little content.
I would not recommend buying this book.
A quick look on google will find the quotes mentioned in this book. Save your £8 and invest it in another book.
What a wise man Warren Buffett is...I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in making a success in life especially in any kind of business transactions, not just stocks and shares. These words of wisdom can be applied to the path your life takes in the future. These are excellent truths and principles to live by and to follow in any kind of business transactions, especially buying stocks and shares...but this is not a book for those seeking to get rich quick, it is book of business and life wisdom, to read over and over and pass on these sound principles to others.
Easily digestible chapters on Key facts related to Buffetts history, career, headline investments, and sayings. With this overview one can then go on to research the subtleties of Buffets' life, ethics and legacy.
This is the first ever business book I’ve read. It’s direct and gives immediate insight to being effective in business. Mr Buffet is honest and revealing in his admissions to success and failure. I’ll certainly buy another one of his books in the hope of being successful also. I’ve been trading now for nearly 4 years so I could use all the help I can get.
i thought that this books is helpful to someone who would start from scratch, with no financial help from anyone. But he comes from a wealthy family who always invested in his ideas.
Summarises Buffett’s life and from each chapter what lessons and points can be drawn from it. Some may like this style but I preferred reading “The Snowball” which is a more lucid and entertaining prose account - albeit a heavy tome at 800 pages.
Was a present for my husband - didnt realise how thin the book was but maybe should have done my research properly. But overal was please with the book
A good read,got well into it,but was slightly disappointed when about two thirds through,the rest of the book was taken up by Buffets famous quotes for success,nevertheless,i would recommend it to anybody interested in Buffet as a role model for investing.
Easy to read and understand the basic principles by which Mr Buffett has created his fortune. A clever and brave man by usually going against the herd instinct when investing.
Good writing style very easy to follow the key points... would be great to find those 5 people to be the average of not many successful people around me to discuss the forward direction I aim for ( need bigger stronger skills )
