This is an excellent look at the investment style of Warren Buffett. It is extremely well written and very clear, I'd even go so far to say that you don't need an in-depth knowledge of maths to understand the principles outlined in this book as they are explained so clearly, with many examples based on Buffetts own techniques and actual stock/business purchases. It has a slight biographical quality about it as well, which is great for that deeper understanding of Buffett and what has motivated and shaped his thinking. Of all the investment books i've read, this is one of the most accessible and useful. A great introduction to Buffett and value investing. Highly, highly recommended. If this piqued your interest try 'The Essays of Warren Buffett' by Lawrence Cunningham for some brilliant examples of Buffetts own clear and entertaining writing style and investment wisdom.

Very good quality, arrived on time and well packed! the book is easy to read and describes how did Buffet came up with his methods and explains what were the reasons behind each of the investments he made.
I was hoping to have some insight into Warren Buffet method with this book, but it just contain the history of his accomplishment. A lot of this book give me a deja-vu feeling like I've read it somewhere else.
The book doesn't feel very organize and it looks like it was put together by cut-and-paste from a number of different articles.
Hagstrom points out who Buffett is, how he operates, and why he is successful. I enjoyed the book because I also study the stock market. Even though I did very well for myself and my customers during a thirty-five year career as a stock broker, I believe I could have done even better had I had this book in 1960.
