I just finished reading the biography. It was an outstanding read. I had read Lowenstein's Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist when it first came out, but Snowball has more texture and detail in comparison to what I recall of the earlier book. Although I have neither the inclination nor ability to participate in the markets in the manner than Buffett has done and continues to do, it is hard not to be awed and humbled by him. He may have some quirks, as we all do, but the integrity with which he lives his life, his political views and his aversion to dynastic wealth are nothing short of inspiring. I'd appreciate the remarks and opinions of others who have read the book.
