Buffett : the making of an American capitalist by Roger Lowenstein( Book )

40 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting from scratch, simply by picking stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed one of the epochal fortunes of the twentieth century - an astounding net worth of $10 billion, and counting. If you had been among the lucky few sitting in his study in Omaha at the start of his career in 1956, and had invested $10,000 with him and kept your money with him throughout, your original investment would be worth $80 million today. That awesome record has made him a cult figure popularly known for his seeming contradictions: a billionaire who has a modest lifestyle, a phenomenally successful investor who eschews the revolving-door trading of modern Wall Street, a brilliant deal-maker who cultivates a homespun aura." "But just who is the Oracle of Omaha, and why is he so successful? In his illuminating biography, journalist Roger Lowenstein draws on three years of unprecedented access to Buffett's family, friends, and colleagues to provide the first definitive, inside account of the life and career of this American original. Buffett reveals a man whose conscientiousness, integrity, and good humor exist alongside an odd emotional isolation. It shows how Buffett's investment strategy - a long-term philosophy grounded in buying stock in companies that are undervalued on the market and hanging on until their worth inevitably surfaces - is a reflection of his inner self."--Jacket

When genius failed : the rise and fall of Long-Term Capital Management by Roger Lowenstein( Book )

51 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Meriwether, a famously successful Wall Street trader, spent the 1980s as a partner at Salomon Brothers, establishing the best - and the brainiest - bond arbitrage group in the world. A mysterious and shy midwesterner, he knitted together a group of Ph. D.-certified arbitrageurs who rewarded him with filial devotion and fabulous profits. Then, in 1991, in the wake of a scandal involving one of his traders, Meriwether abruptly resigned. For two years, his fiercely loyal team - convinced that the chief had been unfairly victimized - plotted their boss's return. Then, in 1993, Meriwether made a historic offer. He gathered together his former disciples and a handful of supereconomists from academia and proposed that they become partners in a new hedge fund different from any Wall Street had ever seen. And so Long-Term Capital Management was born." "When Genius Failed is the cautionary financial tale of our time, the saga of what happened when an elite group of investors believed they could actually deconstruct risk and use virtually limitless leverage to create limitless wealth."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s--at one point making the then astronomical amount of ten million dollars in just one month of trading. So potent a market force was he in his day that Livermore was widely believed to be the man responsible for causing the Crash of 1929. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator--the fictionalized biography of one of the greatest speculators who ever lived--vividly recounts Livermore's mastery of the markets from age fourteen. Now, more than 80 years later, Reminiscences>

Roger Lowenstein explains how corporations and governments ran up ruinous pension and health-care promises to workers--promises that are now coming due and that will hit America like a tsunami if nothing is done. Negotiating high benefits means gambling with future finances--and when the farm gets sold out from underneath major corporations or public institutions, it affects all of us, and in ways we might not imagine. Lowenstein unravels the truth about how pensions work in America and illuminates the impending crisis

Benjamin Graham developed "value investing," a style adopted by Warren Buffett, one of history's most successful investors; it is based on "fundamental analysis," which quantitatively compares a company's stock price to various measures of financial strength and promise. "Growth investing" is a fundamentally different style that seeks to identify tomorrow's great business successes. Learn the ins and outs, and the pros and cons, of these basic investment styles
Crashes, booms, panics and government regulation by Robert Sobel( )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While financial markets sometimes mark time, more often than not they are advancing or correcting. Bull markets eventually are followed by bear interludes; booms; panics; and busts are part of a recurring cycle that marks the course of securities markets. No boom, panic, or bust ever looks exactly like another one, yet most seem to share some attributes-and knowing what these are may help you to better follow and understand financial and economic events. Still, it's important to remember that fully accurate and reliable knowledge of such matters is possible only in retrospect: as Will Rogers once remarked, "never make predictions, especially about the future."

Buffett : the biography by Roger Lowenstein( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting from scratch, simply by picking stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed an astonishing fortune - a net worth of $64 billion and counting. His awesome investment record has made him a cult figure popularly known for his seeming contradictions: a billionaire with a modest lifestyle, a phenomenally successful investor who eschews the revolving-door trading of modern Wall Street, a brilliant dealmaker who cultivates a homespun aura. Journalist Roger Lowenstein draws on three years of unprecedented access to Buffett's family, friends and colleagues to provide this definitive inside account of the life and career of this American original. He explains Buffett's investment strategy - a long-term philosophy grounded in buying stock in companies that are undervalued on the market and hanging on until their worth invariably surfaces - and shows how it is a reflection of the character of the man himself. And in a brand new afterword, in the wake of the news that Buffett has decided to give the bulk of his fortune to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, Lowenstein reflects on the largest charitable donation in American history."--Publisher description
