Thoughts of Chairman Buffett is pure, unadulterated Buffett: a collection of his wittiest, wisest, and most quotable quotes. Compiled by Siimon Reynolds from decades of Buffetts speeches, writings, and interviews, they include gems on such subjects as . . . Hiring

"Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don't have the first, the other two will kill you.

How to Get Wealthy

"I will tell you the secret of getting rich on Wall Street. You try to be greedy when others are fearful, and you try to be very fearful when others are greedy."

This is Buffett at his best: pithy, funny, unforgettable. These pearls of wisdom will make you laugh-and think. They'll give you sound advice and teach you truths about business and life.

    The 'Vest-Pocket' Warren Buffett

    This is a great little book that encapsulates the life and investment career of the most widely written about investor in history, Warren Buffett. It is a collection of Warren¿s wit, wisdom, humor and charm spanning his very successful career as Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. The book is a collection of quotations covering everything from hiring people to his final goal: ¿What I want people to say when they pass my casket is, Boy was he old!¿ This little book is inspiring, funny and gives insights into what made Warren so successful. The author, Siimon Reynold, ends the book with a basic interpretation of Buffett¿s rules of investing. I call this book the ¿Vest-Pocket¿ Warren Buffett. It is an easy read that you'll refer to over and over.
