(online letters) The famous annual letters of Buffett laying out the progress of Berkshire Hathaway and his & Munger’s investment beliefs. Apropos of an investigation into Long Bets as a charitable giving opportunity, I read through them. Perhaps the most interesting part about them is how skewed Buffett’s reputation is, given how often he is cited as a counter-example to EMH, despite him clearly explaining his strategy many times. What is most striking about Buffett’s returns is how, [...]

Mount Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga are the 3 indisputable tallest mountain ranges out there. It is likely on the bucket list of many new and aspiring climbers, working as a backdrop siren call as they hone their skills on lesser mounds.Book lovers have their own list but this list can never be definitive since there can be no universal consensus on what should go into “the toughest reads out there!” book list. Each person’s list, like the idea of utopia or hell, is personal and unique.But [...]

Finally! This one took awhile, but I read through all of them. The way to read this book is to read one letter a day. Here's the 2015 letter (the book stops at 2014): 2015 Letter The 2016 letter: 2016 Letter Going to my first shareholder meeting this May, so reading this was a great way to get the most out of the trip.

Fairy tale for a value investorReading the letters was like reading a comic that comes out in sequels. Just like a comic, the letters are fascinating to read. A good comic leaves you gasping for more after every chapter. The letters do the same. After every letter, you are keen to know by how much percentage points the co. grew, what were the new acquisitions, how were they made (some were made in 5 mins!), new accounting lessons, proverbs n phrases,country songs, jokes and so much more.Every le [...]

If you have enough time, this book covers everything you need to know about the value investment, but it is a book require slow and repetitive reading and thinking. Highly Time consuming. Warren's letter and actions described needs to be related to that context of that year. Don't read those numerous related books, warren and munger's original writings are the best.

I feel bad I kept postponing reading Oracle of Omaha's letters until now. So much to learn on investing and really gels wells with my investment philosophy. This is a must read for anyone who wants to seriously consider investing in equities.

Nothing better than to learn from the greatest investor of all-time! This book is a compendium of Buffett's legendary annual letters to shareholders since he took control of Berkshire Hathaway in the mid-1960s*. As expected, each letter discusses the overall performance of BH's business during the year (beginning with a focus on the original textile business, and expanding as the years pass to cover dozens of different business, insurance being the most important one), but what's most interestin [...]

If you choose to read just one book on investing, this is it. Warren Buffett is the Einstein of investment, a figure so large it towers over any other. These compilation of his letters to shareholders serves as a compendium of his investment principles and how they not only shaped his company but also became sharper through the dull edge of experience.I've read several books on Buffet, from biographies to essays and the collection of his letters is the best distilling of his philosophy you will [...]

Warren Buffett is God at understanding capitalism, and dissecting businesses. Corporate Governance, Management Biases, Investment thesis, there is no one in the world that has more breadth of knowledge on Corporate America than Warren. Great learnings on analyzing balance sheets, P&Ls, Earnings, Cash-Flows, as well as building a definite and sound investment rationale. This book will definitely make you 10x better investor.

Learn from the master. Buffett is as transparent and self-critical as can be. His purpose in delivering his annual reports is "to put the reader in his postion if their roles were reversed." Year after year, Buffett explains his thought process. It's amazing to watch the inexorable growth of Berkshire Hathaway. The 2017 report is due tomorrow and I can't wait!

This is the best investment book I've ever read. Warren has a gift for communicating complex topics clearly.The following two quotes best summarize Warren's philosophy and Berkshire Hathaway's corporate strategy:"Charlie and I look for companies that have a) a business we understand; b) favorable long-term economics; c) able and trustworthy management; and d) a sensible price tag. We like to buy the whole business or, if management is our partner, at least 80%. When control-type purchases of qua [...]

A long, repetitive book. Yet, one of the most enthralling reads I've ever done. If you find business and especially investing fascinating, reading this book will teach you more valuable lessons than attending an MBA, I think (I can't be sure -- I've never attended one).Buffett isn't shy about his reasoning and criteria for decision making, and describes the Berkshire way over and over again, providing an invaluable blueprint for wannabe investors, as well as so many points of reflection for entr [...]

The greatest compilation of business lessons I have ever encountered. These letters are absolute gold. The Intelligent Investor & The Berkshire Hathaway Letters to Shareholders are the two most important things I have read in my entire life. Those two works, by Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett, explain so simply and logically that which is not logical in today's world (and which fascinates me more than anything)Reading a letter from Warren each year from 1956-1957 to today is a long, long [...]

Amazing book. It was great to follow the evolution and thoughts of one of the greatest investors through his letters written to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway.Reading the letters chronologically is a time consuming way of extracting his lessons (there are other books that condense and order them) but it gives an insight about how his thoughts have evolved through time and refer to the situation of his company, the country and the world. It comes through how pragmatic, focused and clear h [...]

There is so much to learn from this book which is a collection of shareholders letters written by Warren Buffett for the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway. It took me a couple of months to finish it but it was really worth every minute I spent reading it. Buffett just doesn't talks about investing, but also about business, life, ethics, accounting and many practical aspects of life. He discusses his mistakes as keenly as his triumphs. This is one book that I’ll keep referring back to from tim [...]

Despite a relatively abundant amount of understandable and unavoidable redundancy, this is truly a classic.It is a must read for virtually anyone who wants (and everyone should want) to know more about investing and finance. And it probably should be the first and last (but not only, of course) book for future finance professionals.With patience and wisdom, and some luck, you don't need to find the new Microsoft, Google, or Facebook to get rich. Just find good companies that you understand, buy [...]

So many fantastic insights from Buffett. A collection of his letters should be part of the required reading for anyone interested in investing. "It is better to be approximately right than precisely wrong." "when a management with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.""Severe change and exceptional returns usually don't mix."

This is the first book I would recommend to all my friends and business colleagues to develop a business philosophy or to analyze businesses and stocks. This book has had a profound impact on my business philosophy and will surely impact my future business acquisitions. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in businesses.

Sage of Omaha - Splendid.But, from investing (and correspondingly) selling his portfolio of investments in derivatives (winding down Gen Re's derivatives operations), while previously having claimed derivatives as being financials, weapons of mass destruction is something I've always considered as bring hypocritical on Warren Buffet's part.

I've read most of the letters by Warren Buffett from 1957 until today. If you are an entrepreneur, investor and generally are interested in business, I highly recommend those letters. I've learned tons of things and am learning more each time I read such a letter.
