Words of wisdom from Charlie Munger—Warren Buffett’s longtime business partner and the visionary Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway—collected and interpreted with an eye towards making an investment by David Clark, coauthor of the bestselling Buffettology series.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska in 1924 Charlie Munger studied mathematics on the University of Michigan, trained as a meteorologist at Cal Tech Pasadena whilst in the Army, and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School without ever earning an undergraduate degree. Lately, Munger is one in all The us’s most successful investors, the Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and Warren Buffett’s business partner for just about forty years. Buffett says “Berkshire has been built to Charlie’s blueprint. My role has been that of general contractor.” Munger is an intelligent, opinionated business man whose ideas can teach professional and amateur investors how to achieve success in finance and life.
Like The Tao of Warren Buffett and The Tao of Te Ching, The Tao of Charlie Munger is a compendium of pithy quotes including, “Knowing what you don’t know is more useful than being brilliant” and “In my whole life, I’ve known no wise people who didn’t read at all times—none, zero.” This collection, culled from interviews, speeches, and questions and answers on the Berkshire Hathaway and Wesco annual meetings, offers insights into Munger’s amazing financial success and life philosophies. Described by Business Insider as “sharp in his wit and making an investment wisdom,” Charlie Munger’s investment tips, business philosophy, and rules for living are as unique as his life story; intelligent as he clearly is; and as successful as he has been.
