Carol J. Loomis first wrote about Warren Buffett for Fortune in 1966, when he was a little-known hedge fund manager in Omaha. They became close personal friends over the following decades, giving Loomis unique access and insight into the mind of the world’s greatest investor. For the last thirty-five years she has also been the pro-bono editor of his famous annual letter to the shareholders of Berkshire-Hathaway. Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune has ever published, including thirteen cover stories and six by Buffett himself, ranging from the 1960s to the 2010s. By putting these pieces into context and adding fresh commentary, she has created a definitive history of Buffett's business and investing career. Listeners will gain new insights not only into his investment strategies, but also his wisdom on management, philanthropy, public policy, and even parenting. And despite her close ties to Buffett, Loomis includes articles and commentary about his occasional mistakes and bad predictions. Many books have been written about Buffett over the years, but none with this unique combination of exclusive access, deep understanding, and historical perspective.
