I’ve been enjoying my Christmas break and doing some reading. I’ve been reading “The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life” by Alice Schroeder. I’m only to page 65 of this 838-page tome (plus additional notes pages) but I’ve already been sucked in. The book was a gift, but not to me, and I’m hopping on a plane tomorrow, so I’ll have to buy myself a copy to finish it.
Speaking of books, I was reminded of another great “investing” book, “Negotiate This!” by Herb Cohen. It didn’t meet my top-8 list only because 1) It isn’t, strictly speaking, an investing book 2) I liked the number 8 and couldn’t manage to bump a book off in it’s place. Needless to say getting a good deal through shopping for great values (as Warren does) or through negotiating great deals (as Warren also does). Regardless, consider picking up “Negotiate This!” and help improve your personal bottom line.
It’s dinner time, so goodbye for now. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
