Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalistby Roger Lowenstein
In September 2007, Forbes named him the second richest person in the world after Bill Gates. Yet Warren Buffett was an elusive figure before Roger Lowenstein brought him and his riveting life story to light. Buffett is more than a book about a billionaire's brilliant strategy for success. It is an American epic about the inspiring and at times eccentric values of a business leader and investing legend. Now with a new Afterword reflecting on, among other things, Buffett's recent commitment to give away his fortune to charity-the largest such donation in American history-Buffett is even more of a revelation and remains an unforgettable reading experience.

This book not only recalls the facinating life of one of america's most successful investors, it also changed the way I think about investing.
This is one of my favorite biographies. Entertaining and informative. Very well written.
This book is an excellent insight into the worlds single greatest investor. It tracks his life from day one, all every event since then. It is the most intriuging biography I have ever Read. Being a Nebraska Native, there are many stories people have about this great man, This book is the best source of some of the best stories of his life. It inspires people that are not investors to want to start, and those that are; to become better ones.
