Book Description
This biography of investor Warren Buffett tells how he forged Berkshire Hathaway into a $100 billion company. The book uncovers almost all the Buffett legacy in 1,500 pages and 750 photos. It's called the California Edition because of:

1. Buffett's backing of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the California election.

2. The tracing of a group of Stanford Business School students who heard Buffett speak there decades ago. Their remarkable careers are followed in light of Buffett. One student turned over word-for-word notes from a talk Buffett gave there in 1978.

3. A rare interview with Harry Bottle, 84, of California, who was Buffett's early Mr. Fix-it.
