When Carol Loomis first mentioned a little-known Omaha hedge-fund manager in a 1966 Fortune article, she didn't dream that Warren Buffett would one day be considered the world's greatest investor - nor that she and Buffett would become close personal friends. As Buf­fett's fortune and reputation grew, Loomis used her unique insight into Buffett's thinking to chronicle his work for Fortune, writ­ing and proposing scores of stories that tracked his many accomplishments - and his occa­sional mistakes.

Now Loomis has collected and updated the best Buffett articles Fortune published between 1966 and 2012, including thirteen cover stories and a dozen pieces authored by Buffett himself. Loomis has provided commentary about each major arti­cle that supplies context and her own informed point of view. Listeners will gain fresh insights into Buffett's investment strategies and his thinking on management, philanthropy, public policy, and parenting.
