Table of Contents

This is the book that tells readers how to invest like the man known as "the Wizard of Omaha" and the investor with "the Midas Touch". Warren Buffett is the most successful investor alive — the only member of the Forbes 400 to have earned his fortune entirely through investing. Bestselling author John Train analyzes the strategies, based on the value approach, that have guided Buffett in his remarkable career, strategies that work even though Buffett operates a thousand miles from Wall Street.

The Midas Touch was one of the first books to recognise Warren Buffett's spectacular record, and to attempt to explain how he achieved his success. It is short, lucid and written with style and wit. A worthy testimony to its remarkable subject.
