The WARREN BUFFETT WAY Peter Lynch, bestselling author of One Up on Wall Street, says he's "the Greatest Investor of them all." What is the secret of Warren Buffett's spectacular success? How has he managed to so consistently beat all the major indices and so regularly come up a market winner? Is his track record really nothing more than a rare statistical aberration--or is it the result of an identifiable approach that other investors can learn and master? The Warren Buffett Way offers investors their first in-depth look at the innovative investment and business strategies behind the spectacular success of living legend Warren E. Buffett. Tracing Warren Buffett's career from the beginning, Robert G. Hagstrom, Jr., tells us exactly how, starting with an initial investment of only $100, Buffett built a business empire worth $19.4 billion. A folksy midwesterner given to terse, homespun wisdom, Warren E. Buffett is one of the most closely watched figures in business today. A savvy investor and brilliant stock-picker, Buffett disdains market trends and sees himself as an investor in businesses rather than stocks.Warren Buffett is often characterized simply as a 'value investor' or a 'Ben Graham disciple.' Hagstrom fills in the rest of the story with some immensely practical pointers on prospering in the market." --Martin S. Fridson Managing Director Merrill Lynch "Warren Buffett is surely the Greatest Investor of this century--not so much because he built a great fortune within a free market as because he has shared his important thinking with us and has openly demonstrated the sagacity and courage so vital to success. Berkshire Hathaway has been my largest, longest investment. Warren has been my best teacher." --Charles D. Ellis Managing Partner Greenwich Associates The Warren Buffett Way is both a fascinating read and a valuable resource for investors and business leaders. Business Week called him "The Most Famous Investor." Forbes dubbed him "The richest person in America and an investment genius on a scale that the world rarely sees." "The Warren Buffett Way outlines his career and presents examples of how his investment techniques and methods evolved and the important individuals in that process. It also details the key investment decisions that produced his unmatched record of performance. Finally the book contains the thinking and the philosophy of an investor that consistently made money using the tools available to every citizen no matter their level of wealth." --from the Foreword by Peter S. Lynch Bestselling author, One Up on Wall Street and Beating the Street "Robert Hagstrom presents an in-depth examination of Warren Buffett's strategies, and the 'how and why' behind his selection of each of the major equity securities that have contributed to his remarkable record of success. His 'homespun' wisdom and philosophy are also part of this comprehensive, interesting, and readable book." --John C. Bogle Chairman, The Vanguard Group "In simple language this book tells the rules by which the most successful American stock investor of modern time got that way. It could be a godsend to the legion of unhappy investors who keep floundering because they ignore the basics of major investment success."--Phil Fisher Author of Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits "Fans of Warren Buffett (count me in) have been waiting anxiously for the great man to write a book and tell us how he does it. Now we can all relax and read this one. It's first rate. Buffett gets a lot of attention for what he preaches, but nobody has described what he practices better than Hagstrom. Here is the lowdown on every major stock he ever bought and why he bought it. Fascinating. You could even try this at home." --John Rothchild Financial columnist Time magazine

Library Journal Review

Hagstrom, a principal in a Philadelphia investment firm, describes the investment strategies and techniques used by Warren Buffett to realize enormous success as a professional investor. Aiming his analysis at the individual investor, Hagstrom reviews the influence of Buffett's mentors, Ben Graham and Philip Fisher, and illustrates Buffett's synthesis of their investment philosophies. Hagstrom provides case studies of Buffett's major investments, showing the qualities of the companies that had appeal. Buffett's investment philosophy espouses long-term investing, respect for good management, and recognition of the value of a business franchise. This insightful work is a worthwhile complement to Graham's classic writings, considered essential for new investors.-Joseph Barth, U.S. Military Acad. Lib., West Point, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010.

Publishers Weekly Review

Starting with $10,000 in 1956 and today worth some $8.5 billion, with significant holdings in Coca-Cola, Capital Cities/ ABC and the Washington Post Company, Omaha, Nebr.-based Buffet is a major player on Wall Street. Financial consultant Hagstrom, who did not interview his subject but obtained permission to quote from his Berkshire Hathaway annual reports, here outlines Buffet's iconoclastic tenets for investing. Unlike many entrepreneurs who take over companies to sell them off in bits, Buffet buys and holds. He rejects the ``efficient market theory''; he doesn't worry about the stock market; and he buys a business, not a stock. He manages with a small staff, no computers and a ``hands off'' strategy. Learning his secrets here, now the rest of us can do a Buffet? Illustrations. Fortune Book Club dual main selection. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

Booklist Review

Warren Buffett was identified as the richest person in America by Forbes last year. Of the more than 70 individuals or families worth more than $1 billion on Forbes list, only Buffett acquired his wealth through investing. Hagstrom, a principal at a Philadelphia investment firm, has tracked the success of Buffett for more than 10 years and argues that the same strategies that Buffett uses in selecting acquisitions can be used by individuals in selecting stocks. Buffett's firm, Berkshire Hathaway, has one of the most widely read annual reports issued, with Buffett himself personally contributing advice, humor, and insight. Hagstrom had Buffett's approval in including extensive quotes from these reports, but Buffett cooperated in no other way with this book. Hagstrom examines the influence of Benjamin Graham and his classic The Intelligent Investor on Buffett and details what Buffett looks for in his investments. Recommended for libraries with popular investment collections. ~--David Rouse
