Book Review - The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

Thanks Brad de Long for highlighting this book review by Michael Lewis. Have read Lowenstein's Buffett: the Making of an American Capitalist and was not keen on reading an other 960 pages on the great investor so this six pages summary comes in handy. A conclusion from the richest man on earth: ""Basically, when you get to my age," she quotes him telling a group of business school students, "you'll really measure your success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do love you. I know people who have a lot of money, and they get testimonial dinners and they get hospital wings named after them. But the truth is that nobody in the world loves them.""
