In Buffettology, Mary Buffett, with the help of David Clark, details Warren Buffett's approach to investing. It's a style of investing based on the work of Benjamin Graham and one that requires a quality that most investors lack--discipline. Mary Buffett writes, "As you read through this book you will come to see that having a business perspective on investing is more about discipline than philosophy.... In short, other people's follies, brought on by fear and greed, will offer you, the investor, the opportunity to take advantage of their mistakes and benefit from the discipline of committing capital to investment only when it makes sense from a business perspective.... You will find that almost everything that relates to business perspective investing is alien to Wall Street folklore.
Buffettology examines Buffett's methods for valuing companies and selecting stocks--it even encourages you to buy a calculator and work through the valuation formulas that Buffett uses when researching companies to buy. The book not only serves as a useful guide to understanding how Buffett invests, it's an excellent primer to investing in stocks, whether you plan to become a Buffettologist or not. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards, Business editor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Great book for the semi-technical finance buff. Lots of good insight into Warren Buffett's way of investing but a little out dated, because it was written a few years ago. Read morePublished 17 days ago by gjgant
I loved this book when glancing it from the bookstore. It motivated me to write my own book. Many of the ideas of Buffett work but a lot of them do not work in today's market. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Tony W. Pow
