This article is about Warren Buffett, no one likes to miss any writings about him, hope you enjoy this also!
Warren Buffett's rock star status is evident from the fact that each year tens of thousands of fans from all over the world travel to Omaha, Nebraska, to listen to him speak at his company Berkshire Hathaway's shareholder meeting. For many at this event, which Buffett calls the "Woodstock for Capitalists," it is an annual ritual of paying homage to the man who made them money through Berkshire's stock and from his investing and business insights. Little wonder that Alice Schroeder's insightful biography titled, The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life, has proved popular among readers. She seeks to explain how Buffett became one of the world's richest men and why he is admired for his business ethics and for uniquely pledging most of his money to philanthropy.
