The year 2015 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Berkshire Hathaway under Warren Buffett's leadership, a milestone worth commemorating. The tenure sets a record for chief executive not only in duration but in value creation and philosophizing. The fourth edition of The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America celebrates its twentieth anniversary. As the book Buffett autographs most, its popularity and longevity attest to the widespread appetite for this unique compilation of Buffett's thoughts that is at once comprehensive, non-repetitive, and digestible. New and experienced readers alike will gain an invaluable informal education by perusing this classic arrangement of Warren's best writings.

The fourth edition's new material includes: Warren's 50th anniversary retrospective, in what Bill Gates called Warren's best letter ever, on conglomerates and Berkshire's future without Buffett; Charlie Munger's 50th anniversary essay on ''The Berkshire System''; Warren's definitive defense of Berkshire's no-dividend practice; and Warren's best advice on investing, whether in apartments, farms, or businesses.

What Warren Buffet says straight from the hours's mouth. An assembly of all his best Invester's letters. If you have $124,000 a share to buy some Berkshire Hathaway stock you probably already know some of this, but for the rest of the world, it's pure gold (maybe platinum). One of those rare peeks into the mind of a genius, at the peak of his game. This is what your idiot teachers should have been teaching you in grade school, instead of the Earth will soon die, because it is getting colder (yah, they were go0fy in the early 1970s too. Twenty years of applying this, should make the Ex-cheerleader regret she doesn't know you, come High School re-union time and give you lots of new phraes like "Get with my scheduler and we will try and work you in, he's a genius."

Great perspective. Not awed by what he has to say (a lot of which is simply common sense), but amazed by how convincingly and easily he put it.

I believe all managers in financial institutions need to read the thoughts presented in Financial due dilligence and lessons for corporate cuts across the globe.good and timely stuff for all.

At the 2000 annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett answered a shareholder's question about good books to read by saying this one is the best book on investment philosophy and that Cunningham did a great job. Buffett had said a similar thing a couple of years ago at the annual meeting right after the book first came out in the original edition. I think he is still right--even more right with this new edition.
