Synopsis

Warren Buffett Financier by Bernard Ryan

Warren Buffet: Financier profiles the life story of this famous investor and businessman. In 1945, after expanding his paper route from one route to five, 13-year-old Warren Buffet saved $1,200 and purchased 40 acres of Nebraska farmland as an investment. Thus began one of the most successful finance careers of the past century. Through savvy business decisions and a respect for living modestly, Warren Buffet has become a billionaire. His holding company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns and operates diverse and successful businesses ranging from GEICO insurance to Benjamin Moore paints.
