Publisher's Summary

For the first time the complete financial history of Berkshire Hathaway is available under one cover in chronological format. Beginning at the origins of the predecessor companies in the textile industry, the listener can examine the development of the modern-day conglomerate year-by-year and decade-by-decade, watching as the struggling textile company morphs into what it has become today.

The structure of the book allows the new student to follow the logic, reasoning, and capital allocation decisions made by Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger from the very beginning. Existing Berkshire shareholders and long-time observers will find new information and refreshing analysis, and a convenient reference guide to the decades of financial moves that built the modern-day respected enterprise that is Berkshire Hathaway.

Complete Berkshire Financial History

If you are looking for a complete financial history of Berkshire Hathaway from its roots in painstaking detail, look no further!
Adam Mead has done a remarkable job in researching Berkshire Hathaway and compiled it for us in one nice and neat package, which has never been done until now. Aside from the finances, Mead explains the history of Berkshire Hathaway in fascinating detail in how the company came to be as it is known today. If you are an investor, a history buff, just curious, or all of the above, I highly recommend the book as it is clear the author spent several years in research work to put this together...
