‘The Snowball’

Warren Buffett, the legendary Omaha investor, has never written a memoir, but he allowed one writer, Alice Schroeder, unprecedented access to explore directly with him and with those closest to him his work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies and wisdom.

When Schroeder met Buffett, she was an insurance industry analyst and a gifted writer known for her keen perception and business acumen. Her writings on finance impressed him, and as she came to know him she realized that while much had been written on the subject of his investing style, no one had moved beyond that to explore his larger philosophy, which is bound up in a complex
personality and the details of his life. Out of this came his decision to cooperate with her on the book about himself that he would never write. ♦
