Warren Buffett is a legendary financial wizard who has built a fortune based on the principles of value investing. Many volumes have been written about his investing approach, but Robert P. Miles’ treatise is a bit different from most of the others. The author is obviously a great fan of Buffett - at times, the book borders on plutocratic hagiography - but his all-encompassing admiration lends his work a distinctive tone. Reading this exposition is like hearing a star-struck fan discuss the techniques of a favorite movie star. Dazed admiration helps Miles see patterns, connections and details about Warren Buffett that you might not find in a more objective or more focused tome. If you want a nitty-gritty, pros and cons analysis of Buffett’s investing style, go elsewhere. If a down-home and frankly admiring analysis, complete with investing advice based on Buffett’s principles, is more your style, getAbstract.com assures you, you’ve come to the right place. No naysayers allowed.
In this summary, you will learn
- What Warren Buffett’s investment philosophies are;
- How to put his practices to work for you; and
- How Buffett’s life shaped his approach to investing.
