In the world of investing, the name Warren Buffett is synonymous with success and prosperity. Learn how Warren Buffett did it—and how you can too.

Building from the ground up, Buffett chose wisely and picked his stocks with care, in turn amassing the huge fortune for which he is now famous. Mary Buffett, former daughter-in-law of this legendary financial genius and a successful businesswoman in her own right, has teamed up with noted Buffettologist David Clark to create Buffettology, a one-of-a-kind investment guide that explains the winning strategies of the master.

* Learn how to approach investing the way Buffett does, based on the authors' firsthand knowledge of the secrets that have made Buffett the world's second wealthiest man

* Use Buffett's proven method of investing in stocks that will continue to grow over time

* Master the straightforward mathematical equipments that assist Buffett in making investments

* Examine the kinds of companies that capture Buffett's interest, and learn how you can use this information to make your own investment choices of the future

Complete with profiles of fifty-four "Buffett companies" — companies in which Buffett has invested and which the authors believe he continues to follow — Buffettology can show any investor, from beginner to savvy pro, how to create a profitable portfolio.
