Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett/2014 Endless Extra Edition by Andrew Kilpatrick
Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett/2014 Endless Extra Edition is a sweeping look at investor Warren Buffett and his company Berkshire Hathaway — the firm with the $200,000 stock price. The book is a revised version of the 2014 Endless Edition which sold out. The work opens with a look at Berkshire’s annual meeting, the largest and most famous in the world. The earlier edition began with a chapter about Heinz which has been expanded and moved to a later spot in the new book. Some chapters have been deleted from the earlier edition and replaced with fresher material. Many new color photos have been added. With more than 1300 pages and 340 newspaper story-like chapters and more than 2000 photos, Of Permanent Value: The Story of Warren Buffett/2014 Endless Extra Edition is, as one Berkshire shareholder says, “ridiculously complete.” Endless, actually. New vignettes range in topic from a recent large insurance investment to Buffett’s casual evening out in Omaha with Paul McCartney. Another episode tells of how the purchase of a rare penny kept it in the Berkshire family. The rise of Buffett from his precocious youth to his exalted post as an elder statesman of business and philanthropy is chronicled in this readable, highly entertaining book.
