Again, this is one of those books where you see Buffett differently through someone else's eyes.
This is a pure pleasure read, as some of the insights will be unsettling for investors, particularly the systematic abuses that encouraged the onset of The Great Recession.
Above the maelstrom of analysts, commentators and private investors stands Mr.
Buffet, a man of resolutely simple tastes, who oozes old-fashioned decency from every pore.
It is a great book for investors just starting out and it continues to be a strong read even when you think you know what you’re doing.
It is always a bit of surprise to think that Buffett has never written a book himself.
These include well-known rules like buying businesses you understand and ignoring Mr.
Market, as well as some deeper lessons drawn from the real-life investments the Oracle from Omaha has made.
If you read all of the above and still feel that you haven’t absorbed enough Buffett, then you have a problem. These two Buffet biographies are thorough looks at the life and times of Warren Buffett.
Lowenstein’s book slants a bit more to the facts, while Schroeder's book was written with Buffett’s cooperation.
