Description

Welcome to the “Woodstock of Capitalism”

A professional skeptic offers his thoroughly entertaining first-hand account of Berkshire Hathaway and the surprising goings on at the company's annual shareholders' meeting

The weekend-long rite of spring that is the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting attracts tens of thousands of people to Omaha, Nebraska, each year. They come to eat steak, buy furniture at a discount, and bask in the brilliance of value investor extraordinaire, Warren Buffet. Last year's meeting drew more than 25,000 people to Omaha, among them hedge fund manager and financial commentator Jeff Matthews. The first book-length account of the meeting, Pilgrimage to Warren Buffet's Omaha, offers readers a skeptic's up-close-and-personal look at Nebraska's notorious financial hoedown. Literate, funny, and informed by the author's keen financial savvy, the book also provides answers to many previously unanswered questions about Buffet and the Berkshire Hathaway family of companies.
