Synopsis:
Highlighted by extensive interviews with Buffett, as well as family, friends, and colleagues, a detailed portrait of the life and career of legendary investment guru Warren Buffett sheds new light on the man, as well as on the work, ideas, business principles, strategies, and no-nonsense insights that have guided his phenomenally successful business endeavors. (Business)

Review:
"Mr. Buffett made a smart choice when he chose Alice Schroeder as his Boswell. Yes, he found an appreciative biographer with whom he seems to have a warm rapport. But he also found a writer able to keep pace with the wild swerves in the Buffett story and the intricacies of Mr. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway business empire. Ms. Schroeder is as insightful about her subject's precise anticipation of current financial crises as she is about his quirky personal story. And she is a clear explicator of fiscal issues. This sprawling, colorful biography will mesmerize anyone interested in who Mr. Buffett is or how he got that way....Fascinating."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 09/28/2008

Review:
"[T]he most nuanced portrait of Buffett to date....The writing is lively and mostly understated...."

James Pressley, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 10/05/2008
