In his introduction, Janjigian notes that to become a successful investor you must be an educated investor, and the best place to start is by examining Buffett's strategies. The author—vice president and executive director of the Forbes Investors Advisory Institute—doggedly follows Buffett's investment trail, scrutinizing the successes and failures of the world's pre-eminent investment celebrity. Janjigian's readable, engaging style carries the reader painlessly through the fundamentals and finer points of investing, assaying Buffett's buying strategies and research methods, while clarifying investment terms and summarizing key points. Although frankly admiring, Janjigian is never fawning and takes pains to make his material clear and compelling; his book is a rounded evaluation of the investment guru's strategies and a useful primer for business neophytes.

It’s refreshing to encounter a title about world-famous investment wizard Warren Buffett that doesn’t paint him as a superhero. Despite his many successes, Buffett has made mistakes and not always taken the right steps, as recounted in this measured, objective account that scrutinizes Buffett’s techniques and presents investment fundamentals and strategies. Unfortunately, Casella’s reading is somewhat lackluster. His careful, almost phonetic enunciation of some phrases and sentences makes it seem as if he is seeing the text for the first time. Although monotonous might be too strong a word, his performance could use a little more spark. Casual listeners may tune out, but those who stick with this “penetrating look at Buffett” will gain insight into the respected businessman and learn more about investment strategies. --David Pitt --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.See all Editorial Reviews
