Warren Buffett remains one of the most sought-after and watched figures in business today. He has become a billionaire and investment sage by buying chunks of companies and holding onto them, managing them as businesses, and eventually reaping huge profits for himself and investors in Berkshire Hathaway. The first two editions of The Warren Buffett Way gave investors their first in-depth look at the innovative investment and business strategies behind the spectacular success of living legend Warren E. Buffett. Tracing Warren Buffett's career from the beginning, Hagstrom told listeners exactly how, starting with an initial investment of only $100 Buffett built a business empire and has an estimated net worth of $44 billion. The Third Edition of The Warren Buffett Way will focus on the timeless principles and strategies behind Buffett's extraordinary investment success. There will be new chapters on the important distinctions between investment and trading and an examination of the most successful disciples of Warren Buffett. Some less important material will be deleted and the overall focus will be to create an edition that will stand the test of time, distilling Buffett's success formula in a way that will provide value to listeners for decades to come.

An awesome listen... if you're not a numbers person (like me) it can get a bit confusing at times but overall the principles and general ideas are conveyed very well.

"Not for the casual listener"
Someone who is very serious about reading financials and sincerely wants to do what is takes to try to beat the indexes.
Yes, it dissected the elements of success behind Buffett's singular success. The author established a rubric and measured some of Buffett's key investments against this.
"very very very dry book"
It's a book on long-term investments in the stock market, follow the tenants of Warren Buffett. I didn't expect it to be very entertaining. but the book could have been much shorter had the last three chapters not been inserted for their Dickenson pay per word value, since they repeated earlier concepts introduced in the book. Although, the biographical chapters on Mr. Buffett were a nice addition.
"Suggest getting the print copy."
The book is more like a manual or text book so having a print copy will help with the various formulas and key points.
"Great insights on a differnent view of investing"
Great story and advise for how to view the opportunities in the Stock Market.
That common sense is not what most people in the market use when investing in the Stock market
"Not for a new investor"
it was worth listening to but I found that their was a lot of number talk in the book that sometimes made it difficult to follow. but if you wanna know more about Warren Buffet then read this book.
"Practical as well as informative"
Last couple chapters do case reviews of companies Warren invested in and why. Spares us of meaningless childhood memory details. Gets into the meat of evolution of Warren 's investing principals. Very practical if you want to think & invest like Warren.
"Best Book ever written on warren buffet principles"
Eye opener for someone who is genuinely interested in making money.
I started listening this book coincidently but could not resist myself finishing it. Now I hope to put in practise the tenets described in this book and let's see the results in few years.
Very informative even for my amateur experience with investing. I had to listen to a few chapters more than once to let the information stick and I really feel that I have jumpstarted into investing in a great way. Everything seems much more commonsensical and clearer now!
"In the list of all time favorites; easily a top 10"
One of the most influential books I read in college... it resonates with me at my core.

Great story through the life of Warren B., his first stocks and investments, and his performance in Berkshire hathaway! Very educational with the impact of Warren Buffet' s mentors😉 I recommend it to everybody who wants to see the real performance of the stock portfolio rather than speculation.
