Not so successful investments like Netjets were favorably discussed. Saloman Brothers wasn't even mentioned throughout the book. You would think Buffett is flawless after reading this book, except he is not. There is more to be learnt from his mistakes than his successes.

WB combines the value investing principle of maintaining low downside risk but pairs it with the growth investing principle of putting money into companies with sustainable growth opportunities.
One key trait that makes WB successful is his ability to focus. An investor can learn about a company's culture from its spending practices. Trade Like Warren Buffett.

Book Review: Buffett Beyond Value | Seeking Alpha
Finally, some of the valuation examples appear a bit too approximate. Prem's background in accounting and personal investing experience could be a potent combination that provides rich insight into various valuation aspects and deliver high dividends to his readers. People tend to attribute Buffett's success to a lots of different things. Starting from being plain lucky to being born with the gift to pick stocks. In this book Prem Jain explains that neither of these things are true by digging deep into each of Buffett's investments to look at what motivated him to make that particular investment.
Prem Jain essentially breaks down Buffett's style to some core principles that Buffett repeatedly uses and sticks to irrespective of the temptation to do otherwise. When others jumped into Dotcom and Technology, Buffett stayed on the sidelines saying that he doesn't understand it. Likewise, emphasis on management quality and more importantly something that people often don't associate with Buffett being a growth investor. This book is not an eulogy to Buffett. Instead it is a well written, easy to understand and more importantly tells what you need to look at while making an investment.
After reading this book, you don't need to listen to an analyst to see what he or she thinks about a particular stock. This book will not make you rich overnight. Instead, I strongly feel, no matter whether you are new to investing or a seasoned veteran, by reading this book it opens your mind to a whole new way of looking at investments and hopefully leads to a successful track record.
Remember some of the principles in this book don't just apply to investing.

They apply to real life as well. Get the book and enjoy the ride It is worth it. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I learned this very useful concept. As a small business owner, I do not have a lot of time to investigate many companies. However, this book has given me some ideas. Even though some other writers have been encouraging people like me to invest in index funds, this book makes that point clear in a few pages.
The first chapter and the chapter of tax deferment show that an investor like me is much better off if the investments are made in an index fund.

Finally, he makes it clear and explains why it is important for a person like me to stay in my circle of competence which is the travel industry. I should try to find some good companies in the travel industry. While airlines seem to be a difficult proposition, there are other companies in this industry. For example, there are hotel companies, cruise companies and lest I forget, there is American Express and similar companies worldwide. So, I hope to spend some time on that.
