Review Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist



With nothing but wise decisions and meticulous judgment for stocks, Warren Buffett had landed on what can be considered one of the most interesting and epochal wealth of the century- an ever-increasing net worth of $10 billion. Such stint in the financial industry has put him on a pedestal as he became one of the most celebrated figures in the field. The majority of investors look up to him, and his principles were constantly put into practice, hoping that one day, they, too, will make it big. 

Far from the grandeur he established, Buffett seems to contradict much of what he had built for a himself-a humble way of living, a successful investor who refuses to venture Wall Street, and an unassuming businessman. Roger Lowenstein’s masterpiece about this renowned figure was derived from three years worth of rigorous discourse with Buffett’s family, friends, and colleagues To arrive at a moving narrative about the financial genius. This also discloses Buffett’s winning strategy, a time-tested principle made to identify the best stocks in the market.
