From the Inside Flap
Over the years, as Warren Buffett′s influence and affluence have grown, one thing has remained the same his unpretentious, honest, and optimistic approach toward business and life. In this completely revised edition of Warren Buffett Speaks, bestselling author Janet Lowe shows you why.
Updated to reflect Buffett′s life over the past decade, this book contains a delightfully entertaining collection of quotes, writings, and favorite sayings from the world′s most successful investor.
Often surprising, always intriguing, and sparked throughout by Buffett′s unique combination of savvy business smarts and dry wit, this new edition is filled with Buffett′s musings on subjects such as the Internet economy, family and friends, running a business, paying taxes, and much more. It also examines the thinking that prompted the second richest man in the world to give 85% of his wealth to the first richest couple (Bill and Melinda Gates) to distribute to charity.
More than just a book about investing, Warren Buffett Speaks reveals the personality and philosophy of one of the world′s most compelling figures.
Peppered with pearls of wisdom cultivated throughout his life, this book will help you understand and appreciate Buffett′s beliefs on a variety of important issues. Here′s a sample of just some of the honest and engaging insights you′ll find inside:
"It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you′ll do things differently."
"You don′t need to be a rocket scientist. Investing is not a game where the guy with the 160 IQ beats the guy with a 130 IQ. Rationality is essential."
"I want to be able to explain my mistakes. This means I do only the things I completely understand."
"You should invest in a business that even a fool could run, because someday a fool will."
"Over the years, a number of very smart people have learned the hard way that a long stream of impressive numbers multiplied by a single zero always equals zero."See all Product description
