Editorial Reviews

Review

"For 25 years, I have religiously read Daniel and Corey's annual commentaries about Berkshire Hathaway. I know of no keener observers on what has made Berkshire such a wonderful wealth-builder. I also know of no investment firm that cares more about their clients than their firm, Pecaut and Company. You can't help but learn valuable lessons by reading this book." - Jonathan Brandt, Research Analyst, Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb (5x Featured Analyst at Berkshire Hathaway's Annual Shareholders Meeting)


"Since Buffett and Munger always expressed themselves candidly and clearly, once you've read Daniel and Corey's copious notes, you'll understand Berkshire's extraordinary approach to investing. This book is a true gem." - Jean-Marie Eveillard, Senior Adviser, First Eagle Investment Management (Recipient of Morningstar's 'Fund Manager Lifetime Achievement Award')


"Having attended nearly every Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting since 1985, I know first-hand that these notes cover every base Buffett and Munger have touched. University of Berkshire Hathaway is a unique gateway inside these legendary meetings. This book will be a resource for generations." - Daniel P. Boyle, President, Schwerin Boyle Capital Management


"Having never been to one of Berkshire Hathaway's annual meetings, I now feel I have attended many. With so many pieces of investment wisdom woven throughout this book, University of Berkshire Hathaway should become a 'must read' for every investor and investment professional." - Wayne F. Holly, President, Sage Rutty & Company

KIRKUS REVIEWS:

"A record of 30 years of holding company Berkshire Hathaway's annual meetings, replete with insight into the minds of the company's leaders.

Berkshire Hathaway chairman, president, and CEO Warren Buffett, known as 'the Oracle of Omaha,' has become a near-mythical figure in the world of investing, an exemplar of success, and a role model emulated by many.

In his debut, investment adviser Pecaut, with his longtime business partner Wrenn, details every annual Berkshire Hathaway investor meeting since 1984.

The book begins with a concise history of the company's rise to dominance as it eventually amassed more than $500 billion in assets. The bulk of the book, though, is comprised of brief accounts of Buffet's lectures and responses to questions from the crowd, as well as the perspective of his vice chairman, Charlie Munger. (As the meetings become more popular and longer, the notes expand as well.)

Both Buffett and Munger share their insights into a broad spectrum of topics, sometimes going beyond financial matters to address politics and life in general. Buffett shares the central tenets of his value-investing philosophy, his thoughts on derivatives, his belief that inflation is largely a political phenomenon, and the reasons why the trade deficit is a bigger deal than a federal budget deficit. Buffett often delights in contradicting the academic notion of efficient (and therefore predictable) markets. Sometimes, it's interesting to see where Buffett seemed to have it wrong; for example, he overestimated the fundamental health of the newspaper industry as well as China's auto-industry business model.

The book doubles as a memoir of sorts, as Pecaut recounts his own career arc, starting as a philosophy major at Harvard and becoming a lifetime student of investment strategy.

This is a long book, and as one might expect, there's a fair amount of redundancy; not every annual meeting offers an entirely novel set of issues to discuss.... However, seasoned investors, as well as Buffett fans, will find plenty of value in this storehouse of financial counsel.

A rare view into the mind of Warren Buffett."
