In the third edition of this international best seller, Lawrence Cunningham brings you the latest wisdom from Warren Buffett’s annual letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders. New material addresses:

  • the financial crisis and its continuing implications for investors, managers and society;
  • the housing bubble at the bottom of that crisis;
  • the debt and derivatives excesses that fueled the crisis and how to deal with them;
  • controlling risk and protecting reputation in corporate governance;
  • Berkshire’s acquisition and operation of Burlington Northern Santa Fe;
  • the role of oversight in heavily regulated industries;
  • investment possibilities today; and
  • weaknesses of popular option valuation models.

Some other material has been rearranged to deepen the themes and lessons that the collection has always produced:

  • Buffett’s “owner-related business principles” are in the prologue as a separate subject and
  • valuation and accounting topics are spread over four instead of two sections and reordered to sharpen their payoff.
