Starting from scratch, simply by picking
stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed
one of the epochal fortunes of the twentieth century--an
astounding net worth of $10 billion, and counting. His
awesome investment record has made him a cult figure
popularly known for his seeming contradictions: a
billionaire who has a modest lifestyle, a phenomenally
successful investor who eschews the revolving-door trading
of modern Wall Street, a brilliant dealmaker who cultivates
a homespun aura.
Journalist Roger Lowenstein draws on
three years of unprecedented access to Buffett's family,
friends, and colleagues to provide the first definitive,
inside account of the life and career of this American
original. Buffett explains Buffett's' investment
strategy--a long-term philosophy grounded in buying stock in
companies that are undervalued on the market and hanging on
until their worth invariably surfaces--and shows how it is a
reflection of his inner self.
