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.
"John Train has a global vision of investing. He understands men and markets. He is an outstanding market forecaster. He writes elegantly. Like the Midas of his title, the things he touches trun to gold."
Lewis E. Lehman, Morgan Stanley
"The Midas Touch is a fabulous value . . . imparts a wealth of lessons for any investor to emulate, no matter how skilled."
The Market Chronicle
"The Midas Touch traces the highlights of Mr Buffett's life and career from his childhood in Omaha . . . to his spectacular coups in the market over 30 years."
The New York Times
"An excellent glimpse into Buffett's life, ideas, and background as well as detailed discussions of Buffett's investment philosophy and techniques."
