"Everyone who reads it comes away singing its praises"
—Warren Buffett

Much has been written about Warren Buffett and the philosophy that made him the most successful investor in history, yet nothing—until now—has been written about his role as manager of the diverse companies under Berkshire Hathaway's ownership.

Berkshire Hathaway expert Robert Miles explores the hands-off management style that has proven so successful for both Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway. Including rare interviews with executives who run the companies within Berkshire Hathaway holdings, The Warren Buffett CEO provides a unique insider's perspective from managers such as:

  • Lou Simpson and Tony Nicely, Presidents and CEOs of Capital Operations and Operations, respectively, Geico
  • Ajit Jain, President, Berkshire Hathaway Reinsurance Group
  • Richard Santulli, Founder and CEO, NetJets

Besides revealing the successful management style of the powerhouse holding company known as Berkshire Hathaway, The Warren Buffett CEO sheds light on the company's future as well as on who will succeed the "Oracle of Omaha" when he steps down. You may never get to work with Warren Buffett, but in reading The Warren Buffett CEO you will understand what it is like to work for "the best boss in the world."

With a Foreword by Tom Osborne, U.S. Congressman and former University of Nebraska Head Football Coach
