Undervalued . Just as Charlie predicted
on 3 January 2013
If like me , you are curious about the financial world and more particularly investment , this book might just be one of those books you will treasure and refer to for a very long time to come .
I came across this book when I started delving deeper into Berkshire Hathaway's partnership and I was already sold on buying this book anyway without looking at the few reviews I did find . Charlie rightly said that he couldn't see that many of this particular book will sell , but that he'd hoped that people learned out of the mistakes that he had made in the past .
His life story appealed to me straight away because it struck a similar cord with me regarding the hardships that Charlie had to endure during life . Although Charlie has a great lineage , he isn't your typical gold spoon fed billionaire . It is also evident that Charlie has a fair amount of intellect and more importantly a perseverance to hold on to his convictions even if no one else sees it his way . Eventually allot of investors do come around to his ideas in the end . Allot of other useful wisdom abounds in this book too and Charlie has no lack in humor either as illustrated in most chapters .
The book is generally very enjoyable to read and adds great weight to any investors book 'portfolio' .
