Warren Buffett Shareholder

The Warren Buffett Shareholder: Stories from inside the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting by Lawrence A. Cunningham

In this engaging collection of stories, 43 veterans of the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting explain why throngs attend year after year. Beyond the highlights of Warren's wisdom displayed on stage in his day-long Q&A with vice chairman Charlie Munger, these experts reveal the Berkshire meeting as a community gathering of fun, fellowship, and learning.

The contributors, who include a dozen best-selling authors and many famous investors, whisk readers through the exciting events surrounding the Meeting--book signings, panel discussions, and social gatherings--and share the pulse of this distinctive corporate culture. Spanning decades, the book offers glimpses of the past and ideas on what lies ahead.

To learn about what makes Buffett's shareholders tick and what happens at the Berkshire meeting, or to reminisce about past Meetings, make this delightful book your companion.
