Much about Charlie Munger, not as much about investing...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Damn Right! Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger (Hardcover)
Without a doubt, Lowe has written an extremely interesting biography of Charles Munger, vice-chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. We learn about Charlie's background, his family (maybe a little too much about his family), and how he eventually met up with a gentleman named Warren Buffett (maybe you've heard of this guy, eh?).
From a purely biographical standpoint, you'll want to read this book. Gives much insight into Charlie's personal character as well as some insight into Buffett's character.
What I think the book misses on is investment technique. Granted, that's not how the book is advertised...it is a biography. But, I was hoping to get some better insight into the Munger/Buffett investment style. I was hoping the author would--at least--tease me a bit. No such luck.
It's an enjoyable read.

This is a very clear and succint review. I was looking for novel investment insights. After reading this biography, I decided not to buy it.
