Description

For the first time in his life, after years of turning down offers from authors and publishers, Warren Buffett has agreed to cooperate on a book that will be a biography of his ideas, a perspective that can be applied to business and the day-to-day decisions that dominate our lives. Buffett has opened his world to Alice Schroeder, former managing director at Morgan Stanley, giving her unprecedented access to himself, his files, friends and associates. This will be the book that provides the never-before-published insight into his character and life, distilling the principles and philosophies that have guided him on a path to extraordinary success and esteem. "The Snowball" is indispensable reading for those who wish to know the man behind the outstanding achievements, leadership and philanthropy. There have been many books written about Warren Buffett that purport to reveal the formula for his investment genius, but "The Snowball" will be the first and only book with his cooperation.show more
