Review: I really enjoyed this book. It shows well both the human side and the investing philosophy guiding Buffett for the last 70 years.
Also, I found interesting the overview of the history of the market return cycles since 1929. Read more
Review: BOTTOM LINE:
More of the same information about Warren Buffett. We all know his story and his investment style. We know about his blockbuster deals in retrospect. Trying to dupicate his success; THAT's the tricky part! Read more
Review: Mary Buffett like many other authors tries to sell books by using Warren Buffett's name. I don't find anything wrong with that as long as they add value to their readers and I think she has with her newest book. Many individual investors (and sadly even professional statements) buy stocks of companies without looking at companies' financial statements. Yes, they can be very boring to read especially if you do not know what to look for. The authors of this book do a nice job in explaining what so... Read more
Review: This is a must red for any long term investor. What if I told you, someone can go back in history and interview Warren buffett around each of his big decisions in his investment career, attend all the Berkshire Hathaway AGMs and take important notes and bundle them together for you with insights relevant for today's world? This is exactly what the book does. It is a collector's item. I recommend reading this book not just once, but many times over. Especially when the markets are in a euphoria o... Read more
Review: I can't say that there's any eye-opening information in here, but it's pretty neat just to take in the writing style. The best lesson I got out of this book is even when you're spending $5, think of where else that $5 can help you out. Which one is more important? Read more
Review: I purchased the book in-person at a book signing event in NYC and have been following Uncle Jason for the last 3-4 years through his podcast. My experience as a founder and network of friends are mostly in the bootstrapped/self-funded/small business/lifestyle space that spawned from Tim Ferris’ 4HWW. So I was curious to see what the other side of the table.
Some Notes That I Took:
Monthly Updates: Whatever business you’re in it’s a good habit to do this, even on a quarterly basis j... Read more
Review: Recommended by Morningstar as one of the "Best Books for Getting Started" as an investor, this little book is a very worthwhile use of three hours--not just for beginners, but also for investors who may be more experienced but may also have come to think of CNBC as something more than entertainment. Schultheis's main idea is that successful investing comes down to three basic imperatives: allocating assets intelligently, approximating (rather than trying to beat) the market average, and saving a...

Review: I came across a review from "a reader" from Verona, N.J. who says; "There are a lot of smart Wall Street people who would just LOVE to separate you from your hard earned money. And for that matter, so would I".This is indicative of the types of people who post 1 star reviews here and are out for Wade Cook. These are also the types of people that Wade warns us all about--the investment sharks trying to sell you the Soup Dejour of their stock portfolio. They make money, their brokerage houses make...

Review: If you are someone who does not know the beggining of how to save money, this is for you. As far as someone looking to invest, do not buy. The book is not entertaining and has pages of useless information that is typically learned by children growing up in today's society. Read more
Review: Short, sweet and to the point, Mr. Greenblatt's "little book" is an excellent read. The books major theme is that investing is a difficult proposition yet that it can be done successfully if one finds and dedicates himself to a sound investing strategy. Just such a strategy is the described by the author.
The essence of the strategy is to buy good companies at bargain prices (where a good company is defined as one that has high returns on investment and where a bargain price is defined as... Read more
