Publisher's Summary

Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway's visionary vice chairman and Warren Buffett's indispensable financial partner, has outperformed market indexes again and again, and he believes any investor can do the same. His notion of "elementary, worldly wisdom" - a set of interdisciplinary mental models involving economics, business, psychology, ethics, and management - allows him to keep his emotions out of his investments and avoid the common pitfalls of bad judgment.
Munger's system has steered his investments for 40 years and has guided generations of successful investors. This book presents the essential steps of Munger's investing strategy, condensed here for the first time from interviews, speeches, writings, and shareholder letters, and paired with commentary from fund managers, value investors, and business-case historians. Derived from Ben Graham's value-investing system, Munger's approach is straightforward enough that ordinary investors can apply it to their portfolios. This book is not simply about investing. It is about cultivating mental models for your whole life, but especially for your investments.

Good, but... one major annoyance

What made the experience of listening to Charlie Munger the most enjoyable?

The story itself is great, informative and insightful.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Charlie Munger?

Detailing how Munger draws from other disciplines to help shape strategies. I'm a sucker for a good analogy.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The biggest downside was the constant footnote references for the quotes. "Charlie Munger, Westco Annual Meeting, 1994", ... that broke up the pace of the story and ideas.

Any additional comments?

Cut out the footnote references in the performance. Add a PDF for the Berskshire math section.

Quote references will drive you crazy!

Interesting book ruined by the constant references to the date and place of every single quote. We KNOW all the quotes are by Munger and whether it was in the Berkshire annual report or at a Harvard lecture is completely irrelevant. It just spoils the flow of the story. What a pity.

An ok book - perhaps better to read.

The content of the book is good and the messages being delivered behind the content is very important. But quite frankly, to hear the constant delivery of quotations of various people ('blah blah blah.' Charlie Munger. US Business School. 1998.) gets pretty tiresome after a couple of chapters. Also, I wasn't too keen on the delivery - very dry and almost robotic - which exacerbates my dislike of the constant quotes. Just because a book is about business and investing, doesn't mean it can't be delivered without any enthusiasm! In my opinion, one might be better off reading this in book format.

Good intro for novice value investors and worthwhile recap for seasoned ones, and especially for fans of Charlie Munger.

Good summary of value investing of Buffet and Munger. Clearly communicated. Easy to follow. Would like to read it as well and make a few notes.
