Editorial Reviews

New York Times
“Entertaining….The idea of using Mr. Buffett as the symbol for her investing approach is effective.”
USA Today
“Lofton (and the Fools) do an admirable job of parsing out the tried and true tenets of smart, sound investing and hitting on how you can improve your investment returns.”
Daily Mail (London)
Thoroughly researched… [Lofton] has drawn up a blue-print for sensible stock picking that is relevant irrespective of whether you are male or female.
DailyWorth.com
“The essential ingredients of Buffett’s investing philosophy have been overlooked until now, argues author Louann Lofton in her new, must-read book. ...Go forth, buy the book, and love your inner Buffett.”
Warren Buffett
“You’ll have to read her book to see the criteria she used, but I’d say I probably plead guilty.”
Daniel H. Pink
“At last, The Motley Fool hits on the real “secret to success” that dozens of other books on Warren Buffett have overlooked - temperament. A witty, well-researched roadmap.”
Andrew Kilpatrick

Nell Minow
“Lofton’s BFF-style advice is fun to read and well-worth taking, whether your chromosomes are XX or XY.”

“Through this refreshingly new approach to understanding Buffett, Lofton convincingly argues that both men and women can improve their stock returns by studying how women (and Buffett) have been more successful in investing.”
