Peter Bevelin begins his fascinating book with Confucius' great wisdom: "A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it, is committing another mistake." Seeking Wisdom is the result of Bevelin's learning about attaining wisdom. His quest for wisdom originated partly from making mistakes himself and observing those of others but also from the philosophy of super-investor and Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman Charles Munger. A man whose simplicity and clarity of thought was unequal to anything Bevelin had seen. In addition to naturalist Charles Darwin and Munger, Bevelin cites an encyclopedic range of thinkers: from first-century BCE Roman poet Publius Terentius to Mark Twain—from Albert Einstein to Richard Feynman—from 16th Century French essayist Michel de Montaigne to Berkshire Hathaway Chairman Warren Buffett. In the book, he describes ideas and research findings from many different fields. This book is for those who love the constant search for knowledge. It is in the spirit of Charles Munger, who says, "All I want to know is where I'm going to die so I'll never go there." There are roads that lead to unhappiness. An understanding of how and why we can "die" should help us avoid them. We can't eliminate mistakes, but we can prevent those that can really hurt us. Using exemplars of clear thinking and attained wisdom, Bevelin focuses on how our thoughts are influenced, why we make misjudgments and tools to improve our thinking. Bevelin tackles such eternal questions as: Why do we behave like we do? What do we want out of life? What interferes with our goals? Read and study this wonderful multidisciplinary exploration of wisdom. It may change the way you think and act in business and in life.

If you admire the legacy and the quality of Charlie Munger's and Warren Buffett's
thinking and decision making, this book is a must read for you.
Very rich and interesting, full of wisdom and knowledge.
It cleverly covers a very wide spectrum of topics from human psychology, philosophy and
behavioral economics to guidelines to better thinking and core business theory.
It is very well written and delivers without losing it's practicallity structure and purpose..
It is a one of a kind book and I dont think that there is anything even close..
A wonderful job, a very helpfull book bravo!!
P.S. : I strongly recommend purchasing it from chem-physics-law-books - Amazon Marketplace
they ARE THE BEST!!
Quite simply, it is one of the best books I've ever read. Critical thinking, decision making, framing the problem in various ways before actually solving the problem, it's all here.
The genius of the book, or what sets it apart from so many others, is the use of quotes from brilliant thinkers reinforces the value of the information. Much like an applied psychology or applied sciences course, rather than another professorial nonfiction book, the ingenious qualities of the quotes stick in your head as if they were [metaphorically] tattooed on your neurons.
Will probably read this book many times over the course of my life.
Definite must read!
It's a book that you can pick up anytime and always learn some wisdoms not only for business/investing but also for life in general.
