Warren Buffet is a household name... even in Australia. This is an interesting and very candid biography of this simple yet complicated man. I enjoyed the personal part just as much as the business parts however his obsession with money from a young age and the fact that he seems to spend so little makes him quite complicated.
Alice Shroeder's writing style is excellent and although it is a long book the writing feels both succinct and animated. In a nutshell, Warren proves to be a shrewd businessman, a patient opportunist, yet seems a little disconnected with his own family. And it is clear only later in life when he realised he wanted to give it away do we see the philanthropic side.
I also enjoyed the sense of transformation from his midwestern roots to a captain of Wall Street and the many great one liners full of wisdom.
