It's a great addition to the collection. I happen to take notes during the meeting just as the authors have done. I eagerly read the notes from pre-2006 because I didn't attend before then. Good tidbits include their views on what's now known to be duds.

A slight negative for me was that the notes were too short/condensed, especially from the 1980's. Wish they provided it verbatim.

But to me a book like this, from one meeting attendee to another, is invaluable.

"You are much better off reading Buffett and Munger directly, and you can do it for free."

I agree with Mr. Merkel.

I too agree. I made the mistake of buying this book and regretted it almost immediately after seeing the first few pages. Did not read the rest. The notes are so sketchy that they are almost useless. If you want the actual transcripts of old Berkshire annual meetings, read OID.
