An excellent read!

This book is extremely interesting whether you are interest in "playing the stocks" or not. Mary Buffett is the narrator and I have to say she does an excellent job. It's extremely easy to listen to and to follow.

The basic trust of this book is to look for stocks that are under valued, have an excellent history and track record and are not price competitive. The author gives details on how to evaluate these companies using simple formulas so that you can select a stock that will give you a return in the double digit arena. The book also gives you a 10 step plan to evaluate the company to see if it's a "Buffett" company... these 10 steps are extremely well laid out and explained beautiful with financial information to back them up.

Some of the introduction of the book is quite amazing if you know little about the man Warren Buffett, who apparently started his first business at the age of 6!! Left home at 13 and had made over $6000 by the age of 18. His early life really shows a man who was driven from an early age.

In summary, if you are interested in investing for the long term, this is certainly the book for you and I would also recommend "The intelligent Investor" by Benjamin Graham... who incidentally was buffett's university lecturer. If you are however interested in market speculation and making risky "fast money" I would say choose another title.

PS. there is a workbook that you can buy separately that is excellent to help you understand the Math... highly recommend both.
