    One thought on “The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Investors and Managers”

    1. This is a MUST read for anybody interested in investment, management or business in general. It not only provides, in my opinion, the most sound investment strategies and advice, but also provides guidelines on how to run businesses with moral integrity and focus on providing value. It heavily criticizes various self-serving practices of "modern" CEOs, while at the same time not saying CEOs should not be well compensated. In other words, Buffet and by extension Berkshire demonstrate how you can [...]

    2. If one were to be forced to judge a book on its projected utility - personal, professional, moral etc - I suspect this might go down as one of the most important books I ever read.

    3. Book provides a good selection of Buffett's essays and writings, organised in a clear topics. Buffett's writings are written with the average off-the-street person in mind, and is hence suitable for anyone with an interest in finance, who wants to learn more about Buffett's views on investing and management. Fundamental ideologies of Buffett can clearly be identified, and the book's layout makes it easy to refer to specific topics of interest. I did feel however, that some of the pieces were a b [...]

    4. I feel privileged to have read the thoughts and principles of Warren Buffet.Many of the poor reviews of this book said the information was dated. When are honesty and superior intelligence ever dated? Others claimed there wasn't any information about trading, but as Buffet says, comparing trading to investing is like comparing a one night stand with romance. Secondly, no trader in history has ever sustained the returns that Buffet has achieved. Comparing traders (paper shufflers) with Buffet is [...]

    5. Deep!When Warren speaks, his words have a tinge of all point of views and while you may understand some prospects of the book, it's very difficult to understand everything since he has a diverse understanding of psychology, accounting, economics: both micro and macro and many more disciplines. Across the book, which is nothing but a mere compilation of the letters written by Warren to Berkshire Hathaway in his annual meetings plus some other short material written by him has been segregated into [...]

    6. Warren Buffett has never written a book - in the absence of one, one can easily imagine that the wealth of information contained in this collection of his essays to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders would be the closest piece of work that accurately distills his investment and management philosophies. For those who find The Intelligent Investor or Security Analysis too tedious, this book also acts as an excellent summary of Benjamin Graham's principles. With copious wit to boot, it makes for a ver [...]

    7. Mr Buffett has a way with words. If you're looking for an eminently readable, well-selected distillation of Warren Buffett's investing philosophy, look no further than this book.

    8. Definite must read. A life long learning journey and a curious mind will be the one that evolves best in evolution fling term !! Read this and you will know as to what separates wheat from chaff

    9. A very worth collection investment book. Warren Buffett stated alots useful investment philosophy and mindset in his letters.

    10. I can't put this too strongly: this book is essential reading for anyone with the least interest in business, investing, or corporate ethics. It is an invaluable compendium of hard-won wisdom and plain old-fashioned common sense that provides a blueprint for how the relationship between companies and investors ought to work.The book is arranged by Lawrence Cunningham in a series of chapters which contain extracts from Buffett's letters to his shareholders, written over a period of over 30 years. [...]

    11. THE BEST GUIDE TO THE VALUE OF A BUSINESS'S ECONOMIC GOODWILL IS WHAT IT CAN EARN ON UNLEVERED NET TANGIBLE ASSETS.Most of what WB does is imitable by the average person. His genius is largely a genius of character - of patience, discipline and rationality.Corporate managers are the stewards of invested capital and the shareholder is the supplier and owner of capital.What the wise do in the beginning fools do in the end.WB believes accounting for investments (own<20%) should include the undis [...]

    12. What you may like about this book• A great presentation of how a large company makes decisions and allocates capital effectively.• Written with (mostly) standard English so is easily understandable for a financial text — less common financial terms are often explained.• Presents Warren Buffett's investment and company philisophies in an easily readable way, at least in comparison to an economics textbook.Possible Drawbacks• Dates of essays are spread between 1979 and 2011 (this may var [...]

    13. To anybody involved with investment, Warren Buffet does not need an introduction. But his (so far successful beyond his own expectations) approach to investment, based on the value of the asset and its potential to add value to his own business is something that is at least worthwhile understanding, if not emulating.Lawrence Cunningham has made the effort to take the comprehensive thoughts of Warren Buffet as expressed in his widely recognized letters to shareholders and has grouped them by subj [...]

    14. I finished this book late last year. His philosophy of how to do business is a delight. It springs from extensive thought about what is right, not what is in fashion. Lo and behold, adhering to his ethics produces an approach to business that feels refreshing, honorable, and not much like conventional practice. Too bad, because I would love to get to do business with more people who share his perspective.

    15. If you want to read complete knowledge which Warren Buffett gave in his annual meeting then this is the book which will guide you. Its talk on lot of topic and cover them in great depth but most importantly it gives you light to think more on each of topic. Probably it will challenge your usual thinking which in itself is fun. You will receive the thinking process of businessman and investor and how he is running such a big conglomerate successfully and why we all love him.

    16. As the books says; I'd highly recommend for investors and managers. Not necessarily a book on how to beat the market like Buffet but rather his opinion on common business topics. There is not much to describe as this book provides great insight into topics you may never use, nonetheless it's his abstract thinking that provides use.

    17. I'm 5% into the book and it has shed more light than any business classes I have ever attended. Warren's thought philosophy and principles are both simple and downright fundamental. Nothing like plain old bread and butter. Looking forward to finish this.

    18. A more extensive version of "A Few Lessons for Investors and Managers from Warren Buffett" - I recommend reading that before you read this. I did a lot of redlining and will keep this book on my shelf for reference in the future.

    19. One of my all time favourites. Gives a great insight into the exceptional philosophy of Berkshire. Definitely a must read.

    20. Warren Buffett เป็นนักลงทุน ที่เปิดเผยแนวคิดของตัวเอง มากกว่าของคนอื่นพอสมควรและเล่มนี้ รวบรวมจดหมายถึงผู้ถือหุ้น มาแยกเป็นหมวดหมู่
