Snowball, Buffett's new biography
"The snowball just happens if you're in the right kind of snow, and that's what happened with me. I don't just mean compounding money either. It's in terms of understanding the world and what kinds of friends you accumulate. You get to select over time, and you've got to be the kind of person that the snow wants to attach itself to. You've got to be your own wet snow, in effect. You'd better be picking up snow as you go along, because you are not going to be getting back up to the top of the hill again. That's the way life works." -- Warren Buffett, on life
I haven't read it yet but for those that missed it, Alice Schroeder recently released a biography of Warren Buffett, Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. As the title implies, this book is supposed to be about Buffett's personal life rather than his investing. The Globe & Mail has a review of the book so check that out if you want to get a feel for the book. It looks like an interesting book for those interested in Buffett's personal life.
The classic book on Buffett is Roger Loweinstein's Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist. I highly recommend that book for any Buffett fans. Snowball seems to be in the same vein and I can't say how good it is until I read it.
