Buffett: The Story of an American Capitalist

The work shows Buffett as a human being, like everyone else, with his strengths and weaknesses.

The readers get an insight into his strategy and his thoughts on corporate management, charity and many other topics.

This is how Warren Buffett reads company numbers

As the title suggests, this book is about the most important reading for the stock market guru himself: company numbers. And about what he can glean from them that has made him the most successful investor of all time. The author and Buffett’s former daughter-in-law explains to the reader which company figures are particularly important for investors.

That’s how Warren Buffett does it

In this publication, James Pardoe explains “24 simple investment strategies of the world’s most successful value investor” and thus offers investors an insight into the most important rules of the stock exchange guru. The book is also well suited for newcomers who are not yet very familiar with the subject, as technical terms and numbers are avoided. The author focuses on strategy and wants the reader to have a basic understanding of Buffett’s approach.

This is just a selection from many works about the successful star investor, his special skills and his strategy. Even if they all deal with the same topic, each one is structured a little differently and is worth reading in its own way.
