Product Description
'Life is like a snowball. The important thing is finding wet snow and a really long hill'. Recounting the life and times of one of the most respected men in the world, Warren Buffett, "The Snowball" is the most fascinating financial success story of our time. The legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir, but finally has allowed Alice Schroeder the unprecedented opportunity to explore directly with him - and with those closest to him - his work opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies and wisdom. The result is this personally revealing and complete biography of the man known across the world as 'The Oracle of Omaha'. Never before has Buffett spent countless hours responding to a writer's questions, talking, giving complete access to his wife, children, friends and business associates - opening his files, recalling his childhood. This is the book that provides the never previously published insight into his character and life, distilling the principles and philosophies that have guided him on a path to extraordinary success and esteem.

Candid, authoritative and extremely informative, "The Snowball" is indispensable reading for those who wish to know the man behind the outstanding achievements, leadership and philanthropy.
