The result is this personally revealing and complete biography of 'The Oracle of Omaha', indispensable reading for those who wish to know the man behind the outstanding achievements.


What the Critics Say

"An epic account of the greatest capital accumulator in history." (The Times)
"An absorbing read ... The Warren Buffett who emerges from these pages is unorthodox, honest, gifted and, in many ways, admirable. In the business of life, however, one suspects that this complex man has rather a lot of debits, as well as credits, on his personal balance sheet." (Observer)
"A monumental work ... you feel like you've been in the presence of a monumentally flawed but riveting character ... utterly compelling." (Evening Standard)
"A well-written, forensically researched and sensitive insight into the Midas of our times." (Spectator)
"Buffett has been ahead of the curve for most of the past fifty years, making him one of the world's richest people. The Snowball provides clues about how he's done it." (Financial Times)
