I’m fascinated by The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. I’ve owned BRK a few times, but never dug into the “man”. I’m now almost halfway thru, and am really looking forward to the last half. It’s always amazing to see how many setbacks a “super-star” has to navigate thru. Gives hope to the rest of us.
This is my first biography in a while. I’m glad that Harvey Schachter mentioned this book in his best of 2008 list ’cause I’m certain that I wouldn’t have given a second look.
The only negative about this book is its length — 838 pages in print, or 37 hr and 1mins in audio. As usual I’m listening to audible version.
