    Hi Mary and David : So far my wife and I have done more than $144,000.00 in one year with just a $26 thousand stock investment . I owe it mainly, to studying hard all of Mary Buffet's books, specially the Tao of Warren Buffet, the best book I have ever read. Thanks to your books Mary, I am getting rich and I have founded the Atwater School Of Buffettology. Right now I am looking for a government to sponsor the school. The school will be an internet federal higher education school for the whole wor Hi Mary and David : So far my wife and I have done more than $144,000.00 in one year with just a $26 thousand stock investment . I owe it mainly, to studying hard all of Mary Buffet's books, specially the Tao of Warren Buffet, the best book I have ever read. Thanks to your books Mary, I am getting rich and I have founded the Atwater School Of Buffettology. Right now I am looking for a government to sponsor the school. The school will be an internet federal higher education school for the whole world. But meanwhile I have achieved a 440 % return on an investment I did on Fannie Mae (FNMA) which I bought for $0.26 a share and currently sells for $1.40 a share. I intend to pass on this account to my sons and I hope that all my future family holds onto to these stocks forever and if they go down in price enough I hope they buy more. The Tao says, if you find an undervalued company with a durable competitive advantage buy lots of shares and hold onto to them. Rule #27 in the book says if a company does well its stock eventually will . That's exactly what happened. I knew that Fannie Mae would be around in the future even after it fell deep into debt, because Warren Buffett said so in the 2012 Berkshire Hathaway meeting in Omaha. Today, May 18 is exactly 1 year since I began buying Fannie Mae shares. Of course, I hope I can buy more FNMA shares. The Tao Of Warren Buffett, is the best book I have ever read because it helped me get out of financial uncertainty. I feared I might end up in a shelter without my wife and her pension. I dedicated myself to study wealth for the past 13 years . My wife Martha and I did well in the real state business but then came the 2008 financial meltdown and we managed to avoid foreclosure and to move from New York City, where life was very expensive and we could only afford to live in a 1 bedroom apartment, to Charlotte, N.C. where life has been much cheaper and we can afford a nice 3 bedroom 3 bath home. But I have never had a job since I've done real estate. Thank God. I come from a middle class Mexican- PuertoRican family. All my life I wanted to be rich. I did not know how. I choose to become a dentist in Mexico and I did it and I specialized at the art and science of Endodontics. But that art did not include finances and although I was great at what I did I had to close down my office after 12 years of practice due to the consequences of a divorce and me not having enough patients. That journey was long and full of fear and uncertainty. The best thing of those times was the birth of my two sons and my office. I was always short of cash. I ended bankrupt. My father bail me out when he left me 100 K after he died. Thanks Dad. That money protected me and later on my wife Martha. I have recovered the money I inherited and I feel rich , really rich. I feel so secure. Today, I spend much less money than in my past and we stay home mostly to save money. I feel very happy with my new habits because in that way we always have enough money for anything. Thank God. Thank you so much Mary for breaking that damned selfish code of silence which brings so much wealth to only a few . I really admire you Mary, I really do and over all I love you. Sincerely, Dr. Alfredo A. Atwater Retired dental pain and infection expert

    A little repetitive, but, because short and full of many of Buffett’s best sayings, this is a worthwhile trove of wisdom. A nice book to peek at once in a while to reinforce good investing (and life) habits. Enjoyable.

    One of the best book to read at the end of the year.

This book by his daughter in law affirms it. Would like to finish this small review with the words of Buffett. " Of the billionaires I have know, money just brings out the basic traits in them. You have to think of Ebenezer Scrooge, on the other hand had to start seeing the ghost before he got it. At the end of the day, If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars. If you were kind and generous before you were rich, you will be even more so after you are rich. " - Warren Buffett.

    This book is trash and a cynical cash-in on the name of Warren Buffett. The quotes are great, of course, but this book is 90% filler. Mary Buffett and David Clark are terrible writers and ought to be ashamed of themselves for putting this book into the world. That being said, I respect the hustle. You gotta make that money somehow.

    It is a small book containing words of wisdom by the great investor Warren Buffet, compiled and explained by his daughter-in-law, Mary Buffet and his disciple, David Clark. The book is written in simple language and clear thoughts jotted down in clear words. Yet the chapters seems a repetition. In all, the book stretches around 15-20 maxims over 125 chapters. Probably this has been done deliberately to create a deeper impact on the reader.

    Although these books aren’t written by the man himself, there is some good content in this book for the beginning advisor. If anything, it’s a kind of daily devotional for traders (without any religious sentiments). It gives good advice for making sustainable choices in your investments.

    ANOTHER AUDIO BOOK FINISHED! Driving on these long ass commutes and I decided I'd give my brain somewhere to wander. I think this was perfect as an audiobook and don't know if I would have read it otherwise. Hearing concise -isms on one of the most wealthy people on the planet was affirming and thought-provoking. If you take his principles and ideas about investing and apply them to any aspect of life (family, relationships, career, etc) they are pretty pragmatic and profound.

If you take his principles and ideas about investing and apply them to any aspect of life (family, relationships, career, etc) they are pretty pragmatic and profound. Some nuggets for me off the top of my head (ya know since I'm not like writing things down and highlighting and whatnot): -accounting is the language of business -invest in companies you actually believe in and believe in the growth of it long term -investing is all about investing in the growth of tomorrow -work with good people -once you sign the dotted line that's it so re-read that ish and accept it -stock market moves from scared to greedy: when people are scared, be 'greedy,' when people are greedy, be scared -durable economic value (?) something like invest in companies that won't change/need a lot of R&D (disagree, I think times have changed a bit) -invest in companies that you can explain why you invested in them -the market will cut you a deal but brokers won't -the stock market is just people moving money around -if you're a shitty person before you're rich you'll be a shitty person after you're rich -a business that requires a lot of capital to start with probably won't make you any money

    Warren Buffet offers wisdom that made him a billionaire but I do not feel I shall have the same results as he in this day and age. However, his business acumen and attitude toward life do teach sound decision-making that can improve one's station in life. I listened to this book on a two-CD set.

    Loads of great quotes and advice from the Sage of Omaha. Never invest in a company any idiot can’t run because one day an idiot will be running it is probably one of the better pieces of advice from Mr Buffet

    *Some takeaways at the bottom of the review.* A little bit repetitive, and sometimes contradictory. Just like the Bible. Actually, I've found just one thing contradictory: "you need to know accounting to properly estimate the intrinsic value of a company, and to understand earning reports and stuff". But then says that "knowing how to multiply, add, subtract and calculate percentages it's enough". I guess accounting is that simple ¿? lol Anyways, it has good advice, it's really helpful for new inve *Some takeaways at the bottom of the review.* A little bit repetitive, and sometimes contradictory.

I guess accounting is that simple ¿? lol Anyways, it has good advice, it's really helpful for new investors. The book helps the reader to gain a broader perspective of value investing, to clarify ideas. It's not a technical guide on fundamental analysis. It's a bunch of quotes from Warren Buffet, sometimes with proper explanation and context. My top takeaways: * Be disciplined. * Value investing is long term. * Buy when it's cheap and everyone is selling, sell when it's expensive and everyone is buying. * Money isn't happiness, neither the best thing in life. Relationships are. * Be around of people that is better than you, so you can learn from them. * Buy on recessions/when the market falls. * Buy stocks from a company that has a business so solid that even an idiot CEO can't screw up. * Buy undervalued stocks. * Know the business you are investing in. * Diversification is the shield of the fools. If you are ignorant, diversify. If your agent tells you to diversify more and more, he's an ignorant, beware! * Agents win with each transaction you make, that's why they don't like the long term strategy. Beware of that. Don't change your stocks each month. It's a long term game. * Don't listen to rumors/whispers. Don't. Nice one =)

Overall, the book was a brisk, insightful, and commonsense read. Several of his quotes and their applications will remain with you long after reading.

    I really appreciated how concise this book was. Often, books trying to teach economic or financial advice get too into themselves and drag out an idea that could have been summarized much faster and had the same effect. By using sayings that Warren Buffett often uses in daily life to summarize his main ideas it forced the authors to keep the book short while packing a lot of information into each page.

    I was a bit sceptical about this book as it seemed as just a way to sell more books using the name of Warren Buffett and the trendy word "tao". However, if you don´t have any knowledge about Warren Buffett and you can borrow the book from library or friend) it is certainly worthy as you get to know the basic ideas behind Warren´s investing strategies. The ideas repeat itself often so you will certainly understand them and remember them.

    This is my first book on investment and all that financial jam. I really have no interest in anything that requires investing, but since my sister recommended me to try it, I thought, why not? I didn't regret it. Even though it's mostly lessons on investment, there are also some life lessons to be learnt as well. Much of his advice can be adapted into life as well. It's a good read after all. This is my first book on investment and all that financial jam.

    Sayings from a wise man captured in a small book. Worth a quick read. Few interesting picks: - A person who gets rich always have a folly that he is intelligent enough to know everything. He should instead remain in his circle of competence. - You have to think for yourself. It amazes me how high-IQ people just imitate others. (Thanks to my team for gifting this book on my birthday)

    Stupid authors can't write great books Words from Warren are the best! Those comments from Mary Buffett and David Clark are totally crap, worthless nonsense bullshit. Stupid guys crawled for the fame by writting books. With the last name "Buffett" in your name, it does not a reliable and convincible way to make you smarter.

    A quick and reflective look at investing from the mind and sayings of Warren Buffett. Not a great audiobook because of the information that would have been better retained by reading, but an easy book to digest and process. I wish I owned a copy of this book, but then again I may not re-read it. With that said, a book that achieved its goals but not one that was a landmark book on investing.

    Good collection of quotes but I frequently seem to disagree with the authors' interpretation of those quotes. The explanations are repetitive and miss detail, and sometimes are wrongly interpreted too. This was the case with "The Tao of Charlie Munger" too. Makes you wonder of the quality of the other books from the authors. Good collection of quotes but I frequently seem to disagree with the authors' interpretation of those quotes.

    The book discusses a lot about how Warren's see things differently than the ordinary people. If you have been a big fan of Marry Buffett, well probably it is not a fascinating read. But, you can still learn a lot about Warren's perspective, as Mary's book rarely explains why he think about things in a certain way.

    The book was quite repetitive and not satisfying at all in terms of substance. I would suggest watching the documentary "Becoming Warren Buffet" rather than reading this book to anyone who is interested in Buffet's investment philosophy.

    A collection of pearls of wisdom from the Wizard of Omaha by his Daughter-in-Law.

    It's an amazing book for an investor. As Warren says, 'Investment must be rational, if you don't understand it, don't do it'. That's why I am selling my stocks to start again from scratch.

    Nothing too deep here... and not meant to be. A simple read. A quote per page with a little of his philosophy behind it. Again, nothing too deep... simple and straight forward very much like Warren Buffett.
