After reading many books and articles by Benjamin Graham, I decided to read about the infamous Warren Buffett. The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life provides a lengthy and detailed account of the life of Warren Buffett. Although it offers no direct advice on investments, the reader will gain insight into the mind and lifestyle of one America’s greatest financial minds.

After reading the biography, I believe that his success lies in no specific investment strategy.  It is his overall outlook on life and common sense approach to investing which allows him to avoid the extremes of risk. (ISBN-13: 978-0553384611)
