The author of this book, Robert Hagstrom, has never spoken to Mr. Buffett about investing. Yet for some strange reason Hagstrom feels qualified to write about Buffett's investment methods. After the book came out Hagstrom started a mutual fund to exploit his readers' trust, Hagstom claimed that he was going to use Buffett's methods as outlined in this book. But Hagstrom's mutual fund turned in such poor results he had to close it down. If you use the investment methodology found in this book you too will get the same poor results that Hagstrom did. If you want to know how Buffett did it, you should look elsewhere.

Far from giving the reader an insight into the investment strategies of the world's greatest investor this book simply summarises selected comments from Buffett in his annual reports of Berkshire Hathaway. Having read the book and the annual reports I can honestly say that Warren Buffett does it better! You can download the reports free of charge from the Berkshire Hathaway web site. Don't waste your time with this book.
