The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life by Alice Schroeder

Many of my friends idolize Warren Buffett.

Truthfully, I don’t know much about him so I’m happy to hear that Alice Schroeder, former managing director at Morgan Stanley, has just written a biography of Warren Buffett after spending approximately two thousands hours interviewing and observing Buffett.

The book is titled The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life and refers to one of Buffett’s folksy sayings about success: “Life is like a snowball. The important thing is finding wet snow and a really long hill.”

As usual, I heard about this book from the New York Times — Janet Maslin‘s “The Richest Man and How He Grew (and Grew His Company, Too).”

I have no doubt that my local library will carry this unprecedented biography of “The Oracle of Omaha” (after all, even Walmart is selling this book) but I may want to purchase a copy anyway.
