Words of wisdom from Charlie Munger - Warren Buffett's longtime business partner and the visionary Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway - collected and interpreted with an eye towards investing by David Clark, coauthor of the best-selling Buffettology series.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1924 Charlie Munger studied mathematics at the University of Michigan, trained as a meteorologist at Cal Tech Pasadena while in the Army, and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School without ever earning an undergraduate degree. Today, Munger is one of America's most successful investors, the Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and Warren Buffett's business partner for almost 40 years. Buffett says "Berkshire has been built to Charlie's blueprint. My role has been that of general contractor." Munger is an intelligent, opinionated business man whose ideas can teach professional and amateur investors how to be successful in finance and life.
Like The Tao of Warren Buffett and The Tao of Te Ching, The Tao of Charlie Munger is a compendium of pithy quotes including, "Knowing what you don't know is more useful than being brilliant" and "In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn't read all the time - none, zero." This collection, culled from interviews, speeches, and questions and answers at the Berkshire Hathaway and Wesco annual meetings, offers insights into Munger's amazing financial success and life philosophies. Described by Business Insider as "sharp in his wit and investing wisdom," Charlie Munger's investment tips, business philosophy, and rules for living are as unique as his life story; intelligent as he clearly is; and as successful as he has been.

Enjoyable so far...

Would you listen to Tao of Charlie Munger again? Why?

Absolutely, taking everything in at once is impossible and there are so many nuggets of useful advice one can gain by listening to the book more than once.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tao of Charlie Munger?

The history section, detailing how Charlie grew up during the great depression and met Warren Buffett. Charlie used to play poker back in the day, and being an ex poker player myself, I can relate to some of the stories.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

"Don't try to be a genius, just try to not be stupid." Charlie's philosophy is to simply avoid being an idiot. Most people are so focused on becoming smarter, yet they are constantly making mistakes. Charlie focuses on avoiding the mistakes.

Too short!

Enjoyed it but wished it had been longer! Might have helped to have longer quotes as well - and to have better differentiated between Munger's voice and the author's voice.

Great content but Audio isn't good enough

Like all of my other reviews, this was great content, but lacks the ability to review specific portions. I guess that's a part of the business model huh? 'Literacy' is under assault, but let's leverage people's dedication to substance so we can sell them the paper back and the digital kindle version... If that's the case, then I think you have a short-term & short-sighted business model. We need the images and text (0s & 1s) to go along with the Audio otherwise, the Audiobook is just someone reading me a story so I can go to bed more easily. Come on Amazon crew. Advocate for a customer.
