Jack: Straight from the Gut Reviews

Review: I guess it's not bragging if you can do it - and he did. It is difficult to argue GE's success over the past 20 years. Mr. Welch took a 12 billion company and made it into a 500 billion dollar business. Without even using a computer!!

30 Years of Lessons Learned from Warren Buffett & Charlie Munger at the Annual Shareholders Meeting Reviews

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
