Abstract:

The arc of Buffett's business life is covered in this book. The editor of Fortune magazine has collected and updated the best Buffett articles published in Fortune between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. The editor has provided commentary about each major article, supplying context and her own informed point of view. Readers will gain fresh insights into Buffett's investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and even parenting. Some of the highlights include: the 1966 A.W. Jones story in which Fortune first mentioned Buffett; the first piece Buffett wrote for the magazine, 1977's "How inflation swindles the equity investor"; Andrew Tobias's 1983 article "Letters from Chairman Buffett," the first review of his Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters; and Buffett's stunningly prescient 2003 piece about derivatives, "Avoiding a Mega-Catastrophe".--From publisher description.
