In The Warren Buffett Way Video Course, author Robert Hagstrom outlines the principles and strategies that have made Buffett the greatest investor of our time. Hagstrom traces Buffett’s path from his childhood in Omaha, through his college years and mentorship with Ben Graham, to the huge success of Buffett’s investment partnership, and through the growth and evolution of Berkshire Hathaway. Along the way, Hagstrom describes Buffett’s twelve immutable tenets that a company must meet to qualify as a potential investment and his philosophy about holding stocks through the ups and downs of the stock market. He points out that Coca Cola, one of Buffett’s best investments, actually underperformed the overall market in several years. The author of the bestselling book, The Warren Buffett Way, Hagstrom makes a passionate case that individual investors can and should emulate Buffett’s investment approach and strategies. Specific topics addressed in the video include:

- What behavioral finance tells us about the challenges of long-term investing
- Buffett’s behavioral, analytical, and organizational edge over other investors
