21 books Warren Buffett thinks you should read



When Warren Buffett started his investing career, he would read 600, 750, or 1000 pages a day.

Even now, he still spends about 80 per cent of his day reading.

“Look, my job is essentially just corralling more and more and more facts and information, and occasionally seeing whether that leads to some action,” he once said in an interview.

“We don’t read other people’s opinions,” he said. “We want to get the facts, and then think.”

To help you get into the mind of the billionaire investor, we’ve rounded up 21 of his book recommendations over 20 years of interviews and shareholder letters.

  1. What he says you should read publicly and what he actually privately thinks you should read may be different lists.

  2. But so any of these books take into consideration the effect their advice may have on the general population or the reader’s nation?
    Do they simply tell YOU how to make YOU rich, at the expense of society & your fellow citizens? Or do they dimply espouse that you look out for number one & to hell with every other number below you?

    The fact that a handful of the world’s population have supported policies & investment strategies that have made them outrageously wealthy at the expense of the general citizenry of the world is EXACTLY what the problem is in our world today.
    And I’m not just talking about the western world, although their citizens have fallen the furthest, If you want to see what’s making the wealthy even more wealthy, just take a look at the public & private debt across the globe…all that debt will fall at the feet of the general population & their descendants, even though they gained almost nothing from the borrowing.

    The entire world is being taken for a ride…is Buffet simply advising you learn how to ride on top of the cart instead of being enslaved to pull it? Or is he actually advising we all learn how to invest in order to strengthen the economy for everyone?
    Balance is the key…is he advocating THAT?

    • Sorry about the transposing of my “D’s” & S’s…I get up at 4:00 AM to feed the thundering herd, and our furnace is still at 58 degrees F, so my fingers are stiff…it won’t rise to 63 degrees until about 6:00 or 7:00, don’t remember which.
      I need to start editing myself.
