The latest biography by Schroeder leaves the reader with all the details one would be looking for about Warren Buffet. It is detailed in such a way that the real Warren Buffett is revealed.
In the biography, Buffett has described what influences both his personal and business life. According to Warren Buffett, life is like a snowball where one has to find a wet one and a long hill. This statement influences the biography book title which is “The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life.” There are other books written about him but have mainly centered on his wisdom in business. Most of the previous books have derived their content from previous shareholder’s letter which he sends out annually. However, even though there is a lot to learn from his business life and business strategies, there is a lot more that comes from studying his life story. Understanding the investment philosophy is much more important than following his strategy.
Other book s which have been produced about his life include; Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist and the Warren Buffett Speaks: Wit and Wisdom from the World’s Greatest Investor. The difference between these books and the one authored by Schroeder is that Warren Buffett gave her a chance. Buffett cooperated and revealed his story.
