Overview

A collection of hundreds of thoughtful and inspiring quotations from “the folksy god of American capitalism” (Vanity Fair).
 
For more than half a century, Warren Buffett, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has been one of the world’s most respected businessmen, not just because of his savvy investments and unmatched record of returns, but also because of his humility, candor, and refreshing perspective on wealth.
 
Despite this tremendous success, the Oracle of Omaha doesn’t feel entitled to the $89 billion net worth his abilities have earned him. Instead, he likes to say that he was born at the right place and time, and as an active philanthropist, he has already pledged to give most of his money to charity. This modesty in the face of proven talent is part of what makes Buffett as popular on Main Street as he is on Wall Street—he is one of the world’s wealthiest men and yet he is still personable and relatable.
 
A comprehensive guidebook to the inner workings of this business icon, Warren Buffett: In His Own Words provides insight into his thoughts on investing, Wall Street, business, politics, taxes, life lessons, and more.
 
This collection of quotations draws from decades of interviews, editorials, and annual shareholder reports, amassing a comprehensive outline of how Buffett believes a good business is run and a good life is led. It’s advice that Buffett has successfully adhered to throughout his 88 years, and it’s now available in Warren Buffett: In His Own Words.
