This works really well as an audiobook. An entertaining and well informed summary of buffet highlights.

I usually go for a walk on my lunch break so i'm listening to this for the second time. It really helps me recognise the mistakes I have been making. Thank you Daniel

Daniels story in the book about undaunted buying a Berkshire Hathaway share for USD 2,570 in the yearly '80's to get meeting credentials for the Berkshire AGM is still one of my favorite Berkshire stories. -Mind you, a ticket that has kept on giving and giving!

My favorite was from the couple who were just in front of me last year in the line waiting to get into the Meeting arena during the early morning hour of 6:30 AM. The couple (both school teachers) were working with a broker in the early 70's who talked them out of buying a few BRK shares. "Too expensive" in the broker's words. The couple must have bought later but we changed subjects quickly to move on to more pleasant topics!

Same.  Just finished the audiobook.  I find that it's always a good practice to immerse myself in "Buffetology" at the beginning of every year, if only to re-ground myself and my thinking.

Its surprisingly easy to stray from the path.
