A Short History of Warren Buffett

This digest captures Warren Buffet's way of life, his business sense and principles and the secrets to his success.

The story begins when Buffett was six years old, intrigued by the ideas of risk and probability. At age 11, he was already dabbling in trading having bought three shares of Cities Services for himself and three for his sister. In 1964, he bought Berkshire Hathaway, a Massachusetts textile firm and he managed to grow it to the 12th largest company in the US.

Despite having amassed $62 billion in wealth, Buffett barely indulges. He pays himself a salary in the range of US$50,000 - US$100,000 and makes massive contributions to charities instead. He made the largest charitable donation on the planet in 2006 to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

One of the greatest investors the world has known, this digest captures intimate details of his life and successes.

A Man of Constant Sorrow, but A Man of Destiny: A Trump of the Past

Some Commentary on this Book:

"This is one of the best articles I have ever read anywhere on the Internet. It must go viral and should become a classic. Highest commendations for this fine work...This is truly inspiring great work." - Dr. PJ

"Thank you Mr. Jack Speer-Williams for a refreshing reminder of the sovereignty of men that made "America" great. Alluding to foreign intelligence, that has catered to and skewed the wealth-stupified among leadership of the US and the world, suggests insider information that has cost the lives of many since 1947. The call to resurrection of American sovereignty, breaking the bonds of the wealth-stupified, puppetry of "foreign intelligence" hits the bulls-eye, applauded by many patriotic commenters. Your treatise has a strong awakening quality, and I will spread it. With sincere appreciation", DR. B

"I second that thought..." DM

"I third that. Inspired writing, Jack." - JS

Discover what made this individual one of America's greatest leaders and what made him so controversial for his time! With parallels to our nation's current President. An intriguing and thought provoking work.

During the changing economic and social conditions of the 1820's and 1830's there was much hostility between the Bank on the one hand, and rising capitalists, urban workers, and farmers on the other. In this context, Jackson aimed to do away with the Bank. The Bank's supporters, however, struck back. In a move intended to wrench political support from Jackson, Henry Clay forced a bill through the Senate to re-charter the Bank. Jackson vetoed the bill, beginning the long struggle which has become known as "The Bank War." Jackson defeated Clay in the presidential election of 1832 despite Clay's efforts. Taking his political victory as a mandate from the people to destroy the Bank, he withdrew federal deposits, thereby setting the stage for the Bank's eventual death in 1836.

The book is filled with entertaining (sometimes candid) and informative graphics and pictures. A worthy examination of certain topics of society not often dealt with in most media.
