Abstract:

"Warren Buffett is one of the most respected men in the world. But the legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir or offered a glimpse into his intensely private life. Here, at last, he gives unprecedented access to this work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies, and wisdom. Buffett gave thousand of hours of his own time as well as complete access to his wife, children, friends and business associates - and his files. The result is a the fullest exploration of his philosophy of life we will ever have. Here are the principles and ideas that made Buffett wealth, enriched the lives of those who adopted them and created the most fascinating American success story of our time."--BOOK JACKET.
