Warren exhibited his entrepreneurial prowess at the age of six when he bought six cartons of Coca-Cola from his grandpa at the price of 25 cents apiece and promptly sold the individual bottles for five cents, making a five-cent profit on every carton. As the world encouraged children to play on the playground or to go have fun, Warren busied himself in making money and testing the murky waters of risk. Warren's life took a dramatic turn when he was five, however. After his father came home one night and announced to the family that the bank where he was employed was closing, Warren's family became very poor. The infamous Great Depression had snaked its way to Nebraska, devastating anything in its path. Warren's grandfather helped Warren's father out by sending him money each month, but it was a while before Howard was employed again.

Before listening to this book, I knew nothing of the man, Warren Buffet. This book is a great crash course covering Buffet's life. From suffering through the Great Depression as a kid, to learning how to make a profit selling Coca Cola as a child, getting married, investing in Geico Insurance, and much much more this short listen covers it all.
The narrator was a pleasure to listen to and did a wonderful job narrating the book.
