Publisher's Summary

It took the world's greatest investor, Warren Buffett, nearly four decades to make his first $100M. The Deals of Warren Buffett, Volume 1 charts the series of investments that made up that journey.

In revealing detail, and with a lucid descriptive style, experienced author and investor Glen Arnold explains Buffett's thinking behind these investment deals and shows how his cumulative returns compounded his wealth over time.

In this formative period, from 1941-78, Buffett developed and honed the investment philosophy that would lead him to become so successful as his career progressed. But it was not all plain sailing - Buffett made mistakes along the way - and Arnold shows how Buffett learned through success and failure how to select companies worth backing. Arnold also includes insightful "learning points" at the end of each chapter, which reveal how investors can learn from the craft of Warren Buffett to improve their own investing. 

Investments featured in this first volume include: GEICO, American Express, Disney, Berkshire Hathaway, See's Candies, and The Washington Post

With stories and analysis drawn from decades of investing experience, join Glen Arnold and delve deeper in The Deals of Warren Buffett!

Story was great but narration was boring

The content in this book was fantastic. It filled many gaps in my knowledge base from the multiple interviews I have heard about Buffett from himself and others. Unfortunately the narration sounds like a computer and is not interesting at all. You must really be focused on learning the content to enjoy this book because the voice reading it to you does not help at all. I recently finished the book King Icahn and the narrator was fantastic. So I may be slightly biased since I have been listening to books with really talented people reading them to me.

Not Well Read

He reads stat tables line by line… with about 20 lines and four rows. “1972: net asset value: xx million. Purchase price: xx million. 1973: net asset…” you get the idea.

Useful context in the deals though so not all a loss. This would be better to have the book than to listen to it.

Good story, impossibly horrible narrating.

Narration was horrible. our 8-year old reads with more inflection. Maybe just buy the book.

Great content but think this is a robot reading

Or it might be the editing. Took a while to get used to. Content is amazing though for Buffett buffs and would be investors.
