About this title

Synopsis:

A young adult biography of investor and philanthropist Warren Buffett

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up—This book answers many questions about the unassuming billionaire from Omaha. Buffett's life, including a detour to Washington, DC, as his father served in the House of Representatives, is detailed on both personal and professional levels. Johnson focuses on the subject's relentless pursuit of perfection in finding companies worthy of his investment and avoiding areas, like technology, that he doesn't fully trust. Using many examples, she highlights how the man researches a company, what criteria he uses to determine whether or not to invest, and his commitment to Berkshire Hathaway's shareholders. These anecdotes make the book accessible and demystify the sometimes-confusing world of stocks and investments. The book concludes with a chapter on Buffett's relationship with another billionaire maverick, Bill Gates, and describes how Buffett has pledged the bulk of his personal fortune to Gates's foundation for promoting health care and education initiatives worldwide. A fair number of color photos is included.—Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA
