Project 365: Day 41 The snowball

The snowball is an autobiography on Warren Buffett, yes that stockpicking and investment legend. I know what you're thinking, "not another warren buffett book". Not really, this is his first and only memoir, in which he granted Alice Schroeder hours and days and months to ask him questions (and getting straight, from the heart answers as well). I've glanced through many books on "the sage of Omaha" before and many of them focus on his decisions and results rather than why he made some of those important decisions. And many of them are just what other authors think he did, which frankly is just bullshit.

Let's see what alice has gotten out of the man himself. I've got a feeling this would be an interesting read, already the introduction makes me want to read more. It's a thick book but bring it on baby.

Best regards,
Jing Qi Quah
