The book tracks slices of Warren Buffetts life, from obscurity to world fame. The approach taken in the various sections is that of "Fortune Magazine" - which is trying to educate/tip-off its readers as to current trends in investing and ideas around money.
Of course Mr. Buffett's investing wisdom will have clashed with the general magazine mood at certain times - the internet bubble being the easiest example, and that also provides an insight into the robustness of his approach/wisdom in all things investing.
Here we can see that Mr. Buffet has mastered all types of investment (and used all types at one stage directly or indirectly) , stocks, bonds, rental properties, deposit and t-bills. Furthermore he is better than "just" a capital allocator - he is a great manager of people.
I suggest that you also read The Snowball - for a further gripping read to provide some more perspective, but this is the better of the two books for people seeking investing lessons.
