From the Publisher:
Warren Buffett built Berkshire Hathaway into something remarkable? and Fortune journalist Carol Loomis had a front-row seat for it all.
When Carol Loomis first mentioned a little-known Omaha hedge fund manager in a 1966 Fortune article, she didn?t dream that Warren Buffett would one day be considered the world?s greatest investor?nor that she and Buffett would quickly become close personal friends. As Buffett?s fortune and reputation grew over time, Loomis used her unique insight into Buffett?s thinking to chronicle his work for Fortune, writing and proposing scores of stories that tracked his many accomplishments?and also his occasional mistakes.
Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune published between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. Loomis has provided commentary about each major article that supplies context and her own informed point of view. Readers will gain fresh insights into Buffett?s investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and even parenting. Some of the highlights include:
Scores of Buffett books have been written, but none can claim this work?s combination of trust between two friends, the writer?s deep understanding of Buffett?s world, and a very long-term perspective.A retrospective collection of "Fortune" articles on Warren Buffett from the past half century places them in context and provides fresh commentary to offer insight into the influential investor's views on such topics as management, philanthropy, and public policy.
