    Description

    Will there ever be another investing book quite like this? It's unlikely. 

    University of Berkshire Hathaway is a remarkable retelling of the lessons, wisdom, and investment strategies handed down personally from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to shareholders during 30 years of their closed-door annual meetings. 

    From this front row seat, you'll see one of the greatest wealth-building records in history unfold, year by year.

    If you're looking for dusty old investment theory, there are hundreds of other books waiting to cure you of insomnia. However, if you're looking for an investing book that's as personal as it is revelatory, look no further.

    Packed with Buffett and Munger's timeless, generous, and often hilarious wisdom, University of Berkshire Hathaway will keep serious investors listening late into the night:

    • Get unique insight into the thinking, strategies, and decisions- both good and bad - that made Buffett and Munger two of the world's greatest investors.
    • Understand the critical reasoning that leads Buffett and Munger to purchase a particular company, including their methods for assigning value. 
    • Learn the central tenets of Buffett's value-investing philosophy "straight from the horse's mouth." 
    • Enjoy Munger's biting wit as he goes after any topic that offends him. 
    • Discover Buffett's distaste for "commonly accepted strategies" like modern portfolio theory. 
    • See why these annual meetings are often called "an MBA in a weekend."

    Great disappointment / false advertisement

    One example to false advertisement: "University of Berkshire Hathaway is a remarkable retelling of the lessons, wisdom, and investment strategies *handed down personally* from Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger to shareholders during 30 years of their closed-door annual meetings. "
    When one reads this, it sounds like the author had one-on-one with Warren Buffett, and Charlie Munger, whereas the information is actually from annual meetings of the company, and sometimes there are up to 40000 people there. Yes, Warren is there and is handing down the information personally, but it is not really in person, and looks like the information gets dilluted!

    The title, description, and such gives you the impression that you will get some insight to investing, but the advices in the book, like "buy a company to a good price" will be relevant after you make your first hundred millions, and if you came that far, you probably know mentors similar to Warren Buffet in person, and don't and won't need this book.

    There is nothing of substance that one could defend the use of "University" in the title of the book.

    Pretty much "buy good companies". It is one thing to use weeks or months of time to figure out "the one company" when you will make hundreds of millions, because you have billions to invest. It is totally another thing when your budget is limited, as the budget of most of the people who buy this book. For them the advice should be "avoid this book, you can use that time to make more money if you invested in doing something else than using time to find a good company".

    A lot of stories that might be interesting, but lessons boils down to "Don't lose money", "Invest wisely", without giving any usable advice to how to accomplish that. Sounds wise and everything, but useless in practice.

    The last drop was the annoyence of repeating how many dollars was Berkshire Hathaway 30 years ago, and then repeat this with every year, that is 30 times, spending many minutes on that. And then repeating of the same thing, for example, float, float, float, as if it would help me. It turns out float is something banks and insurance companies have (thus Berkshire Hathaway has via one of the companies they own). Useless to me (the majority of the book's audience), again billions of dollars, that you invest further. How wonderful, any of that float lying around for 100$?

    If an author / publisher wastes my time by a book that should have been 30 minutes, and bloats it to 12 hours that I have to sip through the minimum information I could gather, that tells me how much the author / publisher value other people...
    Since the Warrent Buffet name sells, I assume millions of people are fooled into paying for this book, millions of hours wasted. Who cares? I do. It is too late for me. Save yourself.

    Lesson learnt: If the author and publisher is the same, maybe that book did not get the editor's investment, and maybe I should take it as a sign that the quality of content might disappoint.

    It was so insightful

    I loved the book. I am new to investing and I dont have a background in anything finance related but I was able to still derive value. It is the type of book that you have to listen more than once and make a lot of notes. My favourite part was the advice Warren gave about investing in yourself by learning everyday. My key take away was the importance of going to bed smarter than you woke up. Knowledge compounded over time is the best investment.

    Worthwhile even for Buffetphiles.

    Good listen. Could have been more thorough, but hits on about 80% of the Berkshire story. Never became boring except for the 30 second chapter intro. Excellent audio presentation. Easy to listen to.

    Great information!

    Provided great insight into the minds of some of the best investors of all time. Invaluable information for learning business and investment strategies from experts. Loved the way they talked about their mistakes as well. Well worth the time.

    Two thumbs up

    Great audio summary of lessons from Shareholders' Meetings. Some reviews said this seems repetitive but I did not felt that that was the case. It said at the end that some parts were cut to avoid being repetitive so it may have been revised since then. Either way, I did not mind at all how some concepts were repeated and stressed.

    Primary Source on Berkshire

    This book is a great source to study the rise of the greatest holding company the world has ever seen. Buffet and Charlie give a full MBA. I don’t know how you can justify paying for a MBA with all the information available for free.

    Learning a lot, just by listening.

    Best way to learn about Berkshire Hathaway and the People who run it. Buffet, Munger, and their managers. I've listened to this book at least 3 times, maybe 5... and I'm still learning from it.

    Awesome

    I enjoyed the book and its style. Distilling the wisdom shared over many decades at the annual meetings. By the end, I felt like I attended all of them. Thanks
