Overview

In the third edition of this international best seller, Lawrence Cunningham brings you the latest wisdom from Warren Buffett's annual letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. New material addresses:

- the financial crisis and its continuing implications for investors, managers and society;

- the housing bubble at the bottom of that crisis;

- the debt and derivatives excesses that fueled the crisis and how to deal with them;

- controlling risk and protecting reputation in corporate governance;

- Berkshire's acquisition and operation of Burlington Northern Santa Fe;

- the role of oversight in heavily regulated industries;

- investment possibilities today; and

- weaknesses of popular option valuation models.

Some other material has been rearranged to deepen the themes and lessons that the collection has always produced:
