Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist
Buffett is the enthralling story of the life and investment philosophy of America's most successful stock picker. Wall Street Journal reporter Roger Lowenstein reveals how the famously sensible investment strategy of buying stocks that are undervalued and hanging on until their worth invariably surfaces is a reflection of the values by which Warren Buffett has always lived. By piercing the veil of secrecy of this immensely private man, Lowenstein explores his human qualities - patience, loyalty, integrity, conviction - and shows how these were always as important as his nimble mind. Buffett masterly traces every facet of this uniquely American life, from delivering Cokes door-to-door in Omaha, Nebraska, to becoming the largest shareholder in the Coca-Cola Company. More than a collection of corporate-finance anecdotes, Buffett is a human story and an unforgettable portrait of one man's remarkable success.
