Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune published between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. Loomis has provided commentary about each major article that supplies context and her own informed point of view. Listeners will gain fresh insights into Buffett’s investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and parenting. Some highlights include:
The 1966 A. W. Jones story in which Fortune first mentioned Buffett
The first piece Buffett wrote for Fortune, 1977’s "How Inflation Swindles the Equity Investor"
Andrew Tobias’ 1983 article “Letters from Chairman Buffett,” the first review of his Berkshire Hathaway shareholder letters
Buffett’s stunningly prescient 2003 piece about derivatives, "Avoiding a Mega-Catastrophe"
His unconventional thoughts on inheritance and philanthropy, including his intention to leave his kids "enough money so they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing"
And Bill Gates’ 1996 article describing his early impressions of Buffett as they struck up their close friendship
Scores of Buffett books have been written, but none can claim this work’s combination of trust between two friends, the writer’s deep understanding of Buffett’s world, and a very long-term perspective.

I Like the content,.... one of the narrators ....not so much.
For some reason Barry Press's reading style and voice really bother me. Not sure why. I can't stand listening to him. Susan Boyce is great, easy to listen to.
The stories are what I was expecting.
