Here is THE book recounting the life and times of one of the most respected men in the world, Warren Buffett. The legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir, but now he has allowed one writer, Alice Schroeder, unprecedented access to explore directly with him and with those closest to him his work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies, and wisdom. The result is the personally revealing and complete biography of the man known everywhere as "The Oracle of Omaha."

Liked the book but it is very long and can be dry at times. Interesting to hear how Warren built his fortune over decades of hard work.

Very little business insights in this book. Most autobiographies from successful entrepreneurs provide good insight into unique business strategies. This book is more focused on his personal life and family.

If you are hoping to learn something new I wouldn't recommend.
