THE IDEAL COMPANION TO THE WARREN BUFFETT WAY THIRD EDITION

The Warren Buffett Way Workbook is the ideal complement to the Third Edition of The Warren Buffett Way—enabling you to review and reflect on how one of the greatest investors in history goes about his business. This comprehensive guide provides an invaluable opportunity to explore your understanding of the strategies and techniques covered in the main text, before integrating them into your own investment endeavors.

The Workbook, which parallels the main book chapter by chapter, contains over 250 multiple-choice questions, with both answers and explanations of those answers, as well as over 200 essay exercises.

Topics reviewed include:

  • The basic set of principles, or tenets, that guide Buffett's investment decisions—whether he's buying a company outright or buying a piece of that business, in the form of shares of stock
  • The focus investing style in which Buffett prefers to manage a portfolio
  • How individuals from Benjamin Graham and Philip Fisher to Charlie Munger influenced the way Buffett sees investing
  • The psychological challenges of managing a Warren Buffett portfolio as well as the role of patience in long-term investing
  • And much more

Also available, The Warren Buffett Way Video Course. Narrated by Robert Hagstrom, it effectively brings Buffett to life from both a professional and personal perspective.
