The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America / Edition 2

In the third edition of this international best seller, Lawrence Cunningham brings you the latest wisdom from Warren Buffett's annual letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. New material addresses:

- the financial crisis and its continuing implications for investors, managers and society;

- the housing bubble at the bottom of that crisis;

- the debt and derivatives excesses that fueled the crisis and how to deal with them;

- controlling risk and protecting reputation in corporate governance;

- Berkshire's acquisition and operation of Burlington Northern Santa Fe;

- the role of oversight in heavily regulated industries;

- investment possibilities today; and

- weaknesses of popular option valuation models.

Some other material has been rearranged to deepen the themes and lessons that the collection has always produced:

- Buffett's “owner-related business principles” are in the prologue as a separate subject and

- valuation and accounting topics are spread over four instead of two sections and reordered to sharpen their payoff.

What Warren Buffet says straight from the hours's mouth. An assembly of all his best Invester's letters. If you have $124,000 a share to buy some Berkshire Hathaway stock you probably already know some of this, but for the rest of the world, it's pure gold (maybe platinum). One of those rare peeks into the mind of a genius, at the peak of his game. This is what your idiot teachers should have been teaching you in grade school, instead of the Earth will soon die, because it is getting colder (yah, they were go0fy in the early 1970s too. Twenty years of applying this, should make the Ex-cheerleader regret she doesn't know you, come High School re-union time and give you lots of new phraes like "Get with my scheduler and we will try and work you in, he's a genius."

At the 2000 annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett answered a shareholder's question about good books to read by saying this one is the best book on investment philosophy and that Cunningham did a great job. Buffett had said a similar thing a couple of years ago at the annual meeting right after the book first came out in the original edition. I think he is still right--even more right with this new edition.
