On the 2014 Forbes rich list, Warren Buffett ranks fourth with a net worth of $61.6 billion. While most people on the list tend to be business tycoons or heirs, Buffett is unique in that he has made his fortune entirely from the capital market.

His success has spawned a veritable cottage industry in writings on his investment techniques. Not all these books are of a uniformly high standard. Only those written by experienced money managers tend to shed light on his techniques in a manner that readers can profit from.

Timothy Vick’s book makes the grade. The first couple of chapters are biographical. What one also learns is that besides being an astute stock picker, Buffett also owes his success to his investments in insurance companies. The latter collect premiums from customers of which only a portion has to be paid back as compensation in the future.

The balance, called free float, is invested by Buffett in stocks and compounds rapidly. In the chapter called ‘Buffett Math 101’, the author dwells on the power of compounding. If you hold on to your investments for a long time, you save on trading costs.
