Summary of the Book 'A Man Of Business':

The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life is a biography about Warren Buffett by Alice Schroeder. Before this book was written Warren Buffett rejected numerous approaches by biographers journalists and publishers to cooperate on an account of his life. After spending six years as the only Wall Street analyst Buffett would speak to Alice Schroeder was approached by Buffett to write his biography. In 2003 she left her job at Morgan Stanley and traveled to Omaha to work on the book full-time. Schroeder spent over 2000 hours reading Buffetts personal files while interviewing Buffett his wife children sisters friends and business associates. Before Schroeder began writing Buffett told her he would not ask for any revisions once the book was finished and where accounts of his life differed to alway use the less flattering version.
