Summary

He’s been consistently voted one of the wealthiest people in the world. Time Magazine also voted him as one of the most influential people in the world; widely considered to be the most successful investor of the entire 20th century.

In short, Warren Buffett is a boss.

The man knows a thing or two about success. With a net worth of $77.1 billion, the billionaire investor's fabled business acumen has inspired everything from investment books to college courses. He is known to favor long-term investment strategies, like dollar-cost averaging, which encourages the regular purchase of the same investment over time. He also has long-standing holdings in the Coca-Cola Company, Apple, and American Express, among others. His now infamous letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders help shed light into how the man they call the “Oracle of Omaha” reads the tea leaves.

This audiobook takes a look at Buffett’s life, from humble beginnings in Omaha up to present day, where the 86-year-old is still going strong. We take a look at his first taste of business at the ripe old age of six, following on with his major successes and failures along the way. 

The aim of this audiobook is to be educational and inspirational with actionable principles you can incorporate into your own life straight from the great man himself.

Including 25 most memorable quotes and 15 success principles by which to live.

Aids to enhancing own business model, by increasing understanding of a different markets other than online.

great insight into the mind of a truly successful individual, also teaches you to be humble and always keep truly loving family and friends close, as that's the true measure of success, and those types of people will support you through your dips and troughs.

Quick recap of Warren Buffett’s life

I love Audible, but with work and x-mas approaching, it’s been beyond difficult to get through my audiobooks.

This story recapped the important moments of Warren Buffett’s life, successes and failures, and some quick quotes he feels are important. The narrator was great, this was put together very well by the author, and it’s a great audiobook for those that would like some background info but are strapped for time.

This was very informative. I feel as if this a guide to keep stepping in the right direction. At 31 years of age I still have the slightest idea on where to put the pennies earned . I seek advice and a sponge to the information.

Thanks,
