Editorial Reviews

Review

"\ber den legenddren amerikanischen Investor Warren Buffet wurden breeits zahlreiche B]cher geschrieben - nun erscheint seine Biograhie erstmals als Comic. Die erstaunliche Karriere des ehemaligen Zeitungstrdgers, der zum erfolgreichsten Einzelinvestor aller zeiten wurde, mutet als Fabel an. Das Buch des Japaners ayano Morio verleiht Buffett zusdtzlich eine Superheld-Aura: Er trifft immer die richtigen Entscheidungen und lvst jeeds Problem sofort - wie ein richtiger Superman des Finanzgewerbes. Fazit: unkritisch, aber am]sant." Der Handel, Februar 2005 ..." Die englischen Texte sind leicht zu lesen, die Illustrationen sind witzig. Auch der Lernwert des Comics ist nicht zu unterschdtzen ..." FAZ, 6. Mdrz 2005

From the Inside Flap

The Superhero of Finance now has his own comic book! Translated from the hugely successful Japanese edition, this cartoon-strip biography of Warren Buffett, provides an excellent introduction to the man and his momentous achievements. Tracing his story from paperboy in Omaha to wealthiest man in the world status, the book entertainingly depicts the way events in the life of Buffett and how they contributed to his unique investment philosophy.

This is an entertaining and readable book that will be welcomed by both Buffett fans and the novice investor.

Format: Paperback
Easy read. Most investors reviews said, must have. I do not agree. It was cute and gives you some insight of how Warren B got started in life and some of his major moves. Other than that, not some huge MOTIVATION or source of information on investing. Really, just insight on how Buffett started out.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Buffett 101 in Manga form - this illustrated novel is a great 45 minute overview of the Oracle of Omaha. It covers the highlights of his life in a factual and humorous format: How he started in business as a child, his mentor/student relationship with Graham, his additions to Graham's style, and his ongoing trials and tribulations in the market.

This is a great overview book, but just that. Expect to hit the high points, but not a lot of depth. (You need more words and less pictures for that!) Perhaps the greatest use of the book is a gift for Buffettologists to help explain their mania to the unitiated.

Enjoy!

We bought this book to introduce our son to the world of investing.

He has taken to the concepts really well, and enjoyed the way this book is presented.

A very worthwhile exercise.

I bought multiple copies of this book for my clients, and they all loved it! Not only is it easy to read, it covers alot of interesting areas like:

* Buffett's WPO delivery antics

* The GEICO interview

* Saving Salomon

* Charlie Munger Partnership

ps. Charlie Munger looks better as Manga Charlie.
