'An epic account of the greatest capital accumulator in history.' Dominic Lawson, The Times 'Warren Buffett's opinions are so hotly sought that THE SNOWBALL, a biography with which he has enthusiastically cooperated, would be of interest even if it answered only softball questions. It approaches him seriously, covers vast terrain and tells a fascinating story.' New York Times 'Buffett has been ahead of the curve for most of the past 50 years, making him one of the world's richest people. THE SNOWBALL provides some clues about how he's done it.' Financial Times 'A monumental work ... you feel like you've been in the presence of a monumentally flawed but riveting character ... utterly compelling.' Evening Standard
