Pathetic; a disgrace to Buffet

Based on the reviews and the author's affiliation with the legendary investor, I thought there would be many insights on Buffett's investment approach. There is none. This is a watered-down, elementary level explanation of Buffett's most basic investment principles, and some of the explanations are questionable and strenuous, like the definition of a "durable competitive advantage". This is not about Buffet's investment approach; it's a weak attempt by someone to try to interpret Buffet's investment style and is full of cliches. For example: Buy Hershey chocolate; it has a good brand and doesn't spend much money on R&D. Buy when it is cheap, not when it's expensive.

If you don't know that a company's "[stock] market capitalization" equals price per share multipled by number of shares outstanding, this is for you. If not, don't waste your money.

Buffet 101

This was a terrific little book about how America's most suucessful investor has made his billions. It is not technical, though it was a terrific insight for a beginner like me.
When all is said and done, his system looks like this, find great companies and buy them when Mr. Market is depressed. Have I given away the secret of the book. No, I am sure lots of people hade said and done the same. Mr. Buffet just happens to be very, very good at it. Will this book make you as successful as Mr. Buffet? Probably not, but there is a good chance you will get some insights that will help you on your own way to financial independence.
When I first learned that Mary Buffet would be reading the book herself, I was a little skeptical. However, I found her voice to be very pleasing and her delivery well paced and easy to understand. Overall, I would say it was a good read; well worth the money spent.
