Warren Buffett (Author of The Essays of Warren Buffett)
It is always a bit of surprise to think that Buffett has never written a book himself. Taken in total, however, his shareholder letters are several books long but they suffer for the lack of an editor. Lawrence Cunningham solved that by going through the letters and organizing Buffett’s thoughts around topics. There is some editorial voice necessary to tie everything together, but the content is Buffett’s and so is the philosophy. The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons For Corporate America takes on a larger scope than The Warren Buffett Way and isn’t solely aimed at the individual investor, although you will still learn a lot about investing.
Year in, year out, Warren Buffett comes up as one of the two or three wealthiest people in the world. He is also arguably the most successful investor of all time. Countless books have been written about him, but The Essays of Warren Buffett, expertly put together by Lawrence Cunningham, is the only edited compendium of writings from the ‘Sage of Omaha’ himself.The first edition of The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America was the focus of a symposium held twenty years ago and was the standard textbook for a specialized course taught by the author, Professor Lawrence A. Cunningham of George Washington University Law School. It has since been adopted by many law and business schools for study in investment, finance and accounting. Investment firms have used this book in their staff and investor training programs. However, the layman should not be put off by these credentials as the book is an approachable guide to understanding investment. Buffett quotes Twain, Churchill and even Woody Allen. If it's a matter of faith in Warren's wisdom, you may be reassured by the sprinkling of Biblical references used to illustrate his points.
