The book is easy to read and gives ample insight into Mr. Buffett's idealogy as a value investor. You are not going to get any secret tips on how to carry out value investing!!
At a certain point
in the book, I found some of the examples were repetitive to serve as illustrations for his tenets. This may be because I am already following him and his investments through Berkshire Hathaway through other articles.
It is really good for a person who doesn't know much about Mr. Buffett who wants to get into trading to understand the pitfalls of his idealogy and encourage him to follow all or some of the tenets given in the book to mitigate his risks and improve his rewards.

Hagstrom doesn't understand Buffet too much. It's not surprising that Legg Mason fund lost money.
Why Greenblatt recommend this book?
