Warren Buffett Wealth: Principles and Practical Methods Used by the World


The strategies and techniques of THE investment legend

Warren Buffett Wealth follows the world's greatest investor from the beginning of his career, as he takes a 100-dollar investment and turns it into one of the most successful multibillion-dollar companies in the world. By carefully detailing how Buffett began his career and discussing what he learned from Benjamin Graham, this book reveals the true secrets to Buffett's success. Readers will see how Buffett reached the pinnacle of his profession by following certain key principles such as investing in old-style traditional American companies, holding the companies forever, and hiring and keeping the same managers.
