Tap Dancing to Work: Warren Buffett on Practically Everything, 1966-2013by Warren Buffett
Synopses & Reviews
Warren Buffett built Berkshire Hathaway into something remarkableandmdash; and Fortune journalist Carol Loomis had a front-row seat for it all.
When Carol Loomis first mentioned a little-known Omaha hedge fund manager in a 1966 Fortune article, she didnandrsquo;t dream that Warren Buffett would one day be considered the worldandrsquo;s greatest investorandmdash;nor that she and Buffett would quickly become close personal friends. As Bufandshy;fettandrsquo;s fortune and reputation grew over time, Loomis used her unique insight into Buffettandrsquo;s thinking to chronicle his work for Fortune, writandshy;ing and proposing scores of stories that tracked his many accomplishmentsandmdash;and also his occaandshy;sional mistakes.
Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune published between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. Loomis has provided commentary about each major artiandshy;cle that supplies context and her own informed point of view. Readers will gain fresh insights into Buffettandrsquo;s investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and even parenting. Some of the highlights include:
Scores of Buffett books have been written, but none can claim this workandrsquo;s combination of trust between two friends, the writerandrsquo;s deep underandshy;standing of Buffettandrsquo;s world, and a very long-term perspective.
