At its most basic level, Allied Capital is the story of Wall Street at its worst. But the story is much bigger than one little-known company. Fooling Some of the People All of the Time is an important call for effective law enforcement, free speech, and fair play.

Jain uncovers the key elements of Buffett's approach that every investor should be aware of. With Buffett Beyond Value, you'll learn that, contrary to popular belief, Warren Buffett is not a pure value investor, but a unique thinker who combines the principles of both value and growth investing strategies.

it was worthwhile to learn about most the subsidiary companies, and their history as most of them do, under berkshire hathaway and other similar companies by comparison to Berkshire. Also explanations on why Buffett may have sold early on certain stock. Otherwise most of it was just reiterating the common value investing principles and strategies.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It highlighted a lot of great pointers in life about leadership that can be found everywhere but mostly get overlooked. I like how it kept reminding me that there's always a lesson in everything. It had a great ending
