Review

"Larry Cunningham has done a great job collating our philosophy. First class."<div>--Warren  Buffett <div></div><div></div></div>

<div>"One of the top investment books of all time."</div> --The Motley Fool

"Two thumbs up."
--CNN

"The book on Buffett. A superb job."
--Forbes

"Extraordinary."
--Money

"A classic on value investing and the definitive source on Buffett."
--Financial Times

<span id="span_contact_Locked_A3PF1D57JBK4MM" style="display: inline;">One of "the smartest books we know."
--Fortune</span>

"Of incalculable and timeless value. Cunningham's Introduction (all by itself) is worth much more than the cost of the book."
--Robert Morris, Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer

"Recommended reading for the President of the United States and everyone else, not only corporate executives."
--Joe Nocera, The New York Times

"Warren Buffett’s shareholder letters are available on the Berkshire website, but this is a brilliant alternative to the forbidding prospect of working through all of them.  In The Essays of Warren Buffett, released in a new edition about every five years, most recently in a 3rd edition in 2013,  Lawrence Cunningham has created a highly readable and topically indexed volume."
--Kevin LaCroix, The D&O Diary

"Larry Cunningham takes Buffett's brilliant letters to a still-higher level by reorganizing them into single-subject chapters. The book begins, moreover, with an excellent introduction by Larry."
--Carol Loomis

Product Description

The year 2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Berkshire Hathaway under Warren Buffett’s leadership, a milestone worth commemorating. The tenure sets a record for chief executive not only in duration but in value creation and philosophizing. The fourth edition of The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America celebrates its twentieth anniversary. As the book Buffett autographs most, its popularity and longevity attest to the widespread appetite for this unique compilation of Buffett’s thoughts that is at once comprehensive, non-repetitive, and digestible. New and experienced readers alike will gain an invaluable informal education by perusing this classic arrangement of Warren’s best writings. 


The fourth edition’s new material includes: 



  • Warren’s 50th anniversary retrospective, in what Bill Gates called Warren’s best letter ever, on conglomerates and Berkshire’s future without Buffett;

  • Charlie Munger’s 50th anniversary essay on “The Berkshire System”;

  • Warren’s definitive defense of Berkshire’s no-dividend practice; and

  • Warren’s best advice on investing, whether in apartments, farms, or businesses.



“Larry Cunningham has done a great job at collating our philosophy.” — Warren Buffett


"Larry Cunningham takes Buffett's brilliant letters to a still-higher level by organizing them into single-subject chapters. The book begins, moreover, with an excellent introduction by Larry.” — Carol Loomis


“This is a very important book. I recommend it to everyone who is interested in learning about investing, corporate governance, and business judgement.” — Bill Ackman


“The book on Buffett—a superb job.” — Forbes


“Extraordinary—full of wisdom, humor, and common sense.” — Money


“A classic on value investing and the definitive source on Buffett.” — Financial Times


“Cunningham has done a truly commendable job distilling and organizing the essence of Buffett's letter to Berkshire shareholders...While the essays reviewed in the latest edition of this volume range across a broad assortment of topics, for most readers the most valuable part of this book will be Buffett's lessons and insights on investing. It is extraordinarily rewarding to be able to survey the accumulated wisdom of one of the world's most successful investors.” — Kevin M. LaCroix, The D&O Diary
