Lawrence A. Cunningham cheers for Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway in a book that perhaps should have been a magazine article. He explains that Berkshire founders stuck with core values and principles, and created a strong culture that should survive the passing of Buffett and even his successors. Those seeking secrets to Berkshire and Buffett’s success will get what they need from the introduction and the final chapter, and can skip the detailed history of Berkshire’s acquisitions. Though never is heard a discouraging word, getAbstract recommends this near-hagiography to investors and leaders who want to dive deeper into Buffett’s thoughts and the company’s history.
In this summary, you will learn
- How Warren Buffett built Berkshire Hathaway, and
- Why its steady adherence to core values and principles ensures its survivability after Buffett’s tenure.
