This will be the book that provides the never-before-published insight into his character and life, distilling the principles and philosophies that have guided him on a path to extraordinary success and esteem. "The Snowball" is indispensable reading for those who wish to know the man behind the outstanding achievements, leadership and philanthropy. There have been many books written about Warren Buffett that purport to reveal the formula for his investment genius, but "The Snowball" will be the first and only book with his cooperation.

This is a biography of Warren Buffett, yet it is so much more than that. Yes, Buffett was and is a very remarkable human being - definitely a one-off, so this story of his life is intrinsically interesting. However, Buffett was involved in many newsworthy events during the second half of the 20th century, so any account of his life throws an interesting light on those events. Despite its length (836 pages of text, plus copious notes and an extensive index), Alice Schroeder writes engagingly and is a delight to read. She has clearly been given exceptional access to a man who is notoriously protective of his private life. In many ways, Buffett is a very odd man, but it is probably that singularity that has enabled him to be the foremost investor of the second half of the 20th century. This is a must-read for anyone who is seriously interested in Value Investing.
