Review of The Snowball by Alice Schroeder

This is my review of the book The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life

Yesterday I wrote a review of a somewhat disappointing book concerning Warren Buffett.  I promised to provide an alternative one that I have enjoyed and this is it.  I have read this book several times and always enjoy it.  I really like that it allows us to see the very young Warren when he had no money yet was selling pop or newspapers throughout the neighborhood!  It is funny when you can see his entire life that in many ways what he does even today can be traced back to how he acted as a child.  I just love the way Alice Schroeder chronicles his life at many points and tells what he is worth so we can watch the power of compounding as Warren the Snowball picks up more and more snow.  I suggest reading this book.
