What if you could learn financial literacy from Warren Buffett himself?

Finance is a language like any other: the more fluently you speak it, the further--and more comfortably--you travel. And if you want to improve your financial literacy, what better teacher could you have than Warren Buffett? Often described as the greatest investor of all time, Warren Buffett started his investment firm with$100 in the late 1950s and went on to become the billionaire and sage we know today. Along the way he's reaped huge profits for fellow investors in Berkshire Hathaway and remains one of the most sought-after and closely watched figures in the business world.

So how did he do it? In Buffett's Tips, award-winning professor and professional investor John M. Longo demonstrates just how by translating decades of Buffett's writings and media appearances into a 100 straightforward tips and strategies anyone can follow for enhanced financial literacy and independence, including:

  • Essential concepts like the time value of money and compound interest
  • Basic financial instruments, such as savings and checking accounts and certificates of deposit
  • Approaches to valuing stock, including discounted cash flow and relative valuation
  • How to build a portfolio in accordance with Buffett's two golden rules

Whether you want to grow your personal finances, develop your business acumen, or improve softer career skills such as emotional intelligence, there's no one better to learn from than the most famous investor in the world--and no better way to do that than having a copy of Buffett's Tips close at hand.
