This was a very interesting and fun book to read. It read very quickly and i would reccomend it.
I rate this book highly beacause it was an enjoyable, quick read. I found it very interesting how this book portrays Warren Buffet as an ordinary guy despite his enormous wealth. Its like a basic book of how to life life to a high degree according to Warren Buffet of course. His observations and advice seem so obvious to me yet so new. The way the book incorporates Buffet's anecdotes and historical facts, makes it entertaining at times. I also like that the sections are so short and to-the-point. They don't drag at all;the changing subjects keeps it interesting.Perhaps the best thing about the book is that Buffet's advice is logical and very easy to understand although I would recommend reading it twice so as to help one to better remember what was said. This book humanizes Buffet to me. Now I see him as a friendly guy with a family (and mistress) who likes to play bridge and drinks five cherry Cokes a day. It confuses me how the man's philosophy of life is so relatively simple and sounds like what so many others follow, yet few can be found called,"the world's greatest investor."
