Warren Buffett

Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway

Warren Buffett is the CEO and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and is considered to be among the greatest investors in history. With the help of Buffett's longtime friend and vice chairman Charlie Munger, Berkshire Hathaway has become one of the world's most valuable companies.

From an early age, Warren Buffett was fascinated with the idea of building businesses and making money. He started a handful of profitable businesses growing up in Omaha, Nebraska including a newspaper route and a pinball machine business. One of the turning points in Warren's life was the day he was accepted to Columbia University in New York City. There he would learn under the legendary investor Benjamin Graham, and embark upon his own investing career.

In 1962, Warren Buffett began buying shares in a textile mill called Berkshire Hathaway. Over time, the textile operations proved to be unprofitable, but the company name remained. Warren grew the company year after year, buying up profitable businesses and becoming the world's richest person along the way.

Buffett attributes much of his success in life to reading, and below is the list of books Warren Buffett has recommended over the years.
