en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 24 Dec 2013

A gold mine of investing advice from the most successful investor in history
When Warren Buffett speaks, people around the world listen. And with good reason: Buffett, or "The Sage of Omaha" as he is popularly known, is arguably, the most successful investor in history. How successful? In addition to being one of the wealthiest people in the world, with a personal fortune currently estimated at US$60 billion, he was named the "Top Money Manager of the Twentieth Century" by the prestigious Carson Group, and he was listed among Time magazine′s 100 Most Influential People in the world.
Through three successive editions, The Essays of Warren Buffett has maintained its stature as the definitive guide to Buffett′s investment philosophy, and this Fourth Edition of that international bestseller is no exception. Fully revised and updated to include Buffett′s views on recent events, both within the financial arena and beyond, this edition, like its predecessors, features commentaries by internationally recognized Warren Buffett expert, Lawrence Cunningham. As reviewers including Warren Buffett himself have noted, Professor Cunningham′s commentaries are a priceless source of insight and sound advice for all serious investors.
