Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Warren Buffett is both a unique investor and individual. He is one of the few to ever become a billionaire by investing in the stock market, yet he still does his own tax return, has never issued himself stock options, and doesn’t want or need a building with his or his company’s name on it.

Not too long ago, several members of the media and the investment community were writing off Buffett’s investment principles and style as not being in step with technology investments and new methods of investing. But time has proven these critics wrong. Now, more than ever, the principles, values, and methods used by Buffett to create wealth are sought after and carefully considered.

Warren Buffett Wealth does not discuss any of the latest get-rich-quick investment fads. Instead, it focuses on the straightforward, ethical factors and principles of building wealth, sustaining it, and passing it on to future generations for the betterment of society.

Written by longtime Buffett expert Robert Miles, this book outlines the principles and practical methods that have made Buffett one of the greatest investors of our time. You’ll learn how to be the best by studying the best and discover how Buffett has built his wealth over time–not overnight. Through careful observations and in-depth research, Miles examines Buffett’s philosophy and illustrates how you can apply it in your own investment endeavors. Some of the topics discussed will help you:

  • Discover what kind of investor you are
  • Develop an investment philosophy
  • Understand what you own
  • Invest in Main Street, not Wall Street
  • Learn from Buffett’s investment mistakes

Take-away exercises found at the end of each chapter will further your understanding of the philosophies, principles, and practical methods used by Warren Buffett.

As a value investor and a value manager, Warren Buffett has become one of the world’s richest citizens. His wealth principles and methods are available to anyone who chooses to use them. With Warren Buffett Wealth as your guide, you’ll learn how to become wealthy in both the stock market and in life.

16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Poh Teck Leng on October 16, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Design of book:

Chapters headings and sections headings are structured to be captivating and clear, making it easy to convey the purposes and meanings of the principles.


The initial chapters of the book build on some of Buffett's stories and are intended to persuade the reader into following Buffett's principles of investing. You will unfold more of Buffett ways as you read, but most of the essential tips are already mentioned in the first half of the book. The later chapters merely serve as unnecessary elaborations. Principles and examples are also recycled at the later chapters giving readers a feeling that they were reading the book again, before they finished reading.

Buffett debunks the Efficient Market Theory (EMT) by emphasizing on knowing the stocks you buy, buying at a discount and his track records. He also believes that knowledge of basic finances and accounting (GAAP) are necessary to value businesses. However, it will be hard to replicate his success given the difficulties of finding under-valued firms and attaining his wealth of experiences in interpreting annual reports.

For who:

More for first-time readers of Buffett's principles and books, though the author suggests that readers of other Buffett books would find it beneficial as well. Like most books, its persuasive content might not be relevant for readers who are already believers of his principles.

This is also not a `get-rich at once' book. Further readings like The Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis (both written by Benjamin Graham) are necessary for savvy investing. Discipline, morals and experiences are also vital when following his principles.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on August 5, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Warren Buffett is a legendary financial wizard who has built a fortune based on the principles of value investing. Many volumes have been written about his investing approach, but Robert P. Miles' treatise is a bit different from most of the others. The author is obviously a great fan of Buffett - at times, the book borders on plutocratic hagiography - but his all-encompassing admiration lends his work a distinctive tone. Reading this exposition is like hearing a star-struck fan discuss the techniques of a favorite movie star. Dazed admiration helps Miles see patterns, connections and details about Warren Buffett that you might not find in a more objective or more focused tome. If you want a nitty-gritty, pros and cons analysis of Buffett's investing style, go elsewhere. If a down-home and frankly admiring analysis, complete with investing advice based on Buffett's principles, is more your style, we assure you, you've come to the right place. No naysayers allowed.
