A Collection Of Thought-Provoking Direct Quotes From Warren Buffett On Topics Related To Business, Investing, Leadership, Berkshire Hathaway, And Life. This Book Shares The Unique Perspective Of One Of The Our Eras Most Successful Business Leaders And Investors, In An Appealing Gift-Friendly Format
From his office in Omaha, Nebraska, without even the benefit of a computer, Warren Buffett has racked up an investment record that far surpasses his counterparts on Wall Street-or anyone else in the world, for that matter. While traditionally stock exchanges have returned about 11 percent annually in the past half century, Buffetts investments have returned nearly 29 percent a year, solidifying Buffetts conglomerate holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, as the eighth-largest business in the world and netting him $44 billion along the way.
Despite this tremendous success, "the Oracle of Omaha" remains modest. He acknowledges that he has a unique ability to evaluate businesses, but he doesnt feel entitled to the vast wealth that ability has earned him. Instead, he likes to say that he was born at the right place and time. This humility accompanying his proven talent and vast wealth is part of what makes Buffett universally popular-though one of the worlds wealthiest men, he is still personable and engaging in a way that allows typical Americans to relate to him.
