Book Review – The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons For Corporate America

Warren Buffett is a fascinating individual. He is one of the richest man in the world and is known as the "Oracle of Omaha". He is known as the greatest investor in the world because his investments (e.g. Berkshire Hathaway) have grown exponentially. There are thousands of books written about him and his way of investing or any opinion that he may have. This book,"The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Corporate America" by Lawrence Cunningham, reflects Warren Buffett’s perspective on business that are invaluable for corporate America.

I would have never have heard of this book if it was not mentioned by Warren Buffett himself. In an interview of Warren Buffett a few years ago, he was asked out of the many books written about him which one is his favorite. Warren Buffet directly referred to this book. He had glowing reviews about it. He stated that this book is first class and does a great job at collating the business philosophy of his business. Thus, it peaked my interest.

Even if you are not a CEO of a company, you can still find a lot of value in this book. The overall principles of a well-run and successful company can help anyone who are looking at stock values, running a small business, etc. These principles and lessons are taught in this book through the many essays by Warren Buffet.
