Investing Like Buffett

The 11th Forbes Cruise for Investors continues. Today we heard from Marilyn Cohen, a fixed-income specialist who also writes a regular column in Forbes magazine. We also heard from Arjuna Mahendran, Chief Strategist Asia Pacific at Credit Suisse. Both made excellent presentations. I also gave a presentation, which focused on my research on Warren Buffett. For the past several months I have been writing a book about Buffett. While there are a number of books already in publication, they are all “love” stories. I believe my book is the most objective one by far. While I criticize Buffett for advocating certain views that I believe hurt investors, I also conclude that he is clearly the greatest investor of all time. My respect for him has grown immensely since I began this project. If all goes according to plan, the book will on the market by next spring.
