The Essays of Warren Buffett : Lessons for Corporate America The Cunningham Group

Buffett, the Bard of Omaha, is a genuine American folk hero, if folk heroes are allowed to build fortunes worth upward of $15 billion. He's great at homespun metaphor, but behind those catchy phrases is a reservoir of financial acumen that's generally considered the best of his generation. For example, in an essay on CEO stock options, he writes, "Negotiating with one's self seldom produces a barroom brawl." This is his way of saying that an executive who can give himself compensation totally disproportionate to his performance surely will. There are uncountable gems of financial wisdom to be harvested from these essays, taken from the annual reports he writes for Berkshire Hathaway, his holding company. Just to pick one more, here's a now-famous line about those he competes with when making stock-market investments: "What could be more advantageous in an intellectual contest--whether it be chess, bridge, or stock selection--than to have opponents who have been taught that thinking is a waste of energy?" While Buffett has a policy of seldom commenting on stocks he owns--he feels public pronouncements will only lead to the public's expectation of more public pronouncements, and he likes to keep his cards close to his vest--he loves to discuss the principles behind his investments. These come primarily from Ben Graham, under whom Buffett studied at Columbia University and for whom he worked in the 1950s. First among them is the idea that price is what you pay and value is what you get--and if you're a smart investor, the first will always be less than the second. In that sense, the value of the lessons learned from Buffett's Essays could be far greater than the book's price. --Lou Schuler -- This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. "Cunningham has done a super job. This is the book on Buffett." Book Description The definitive work concerning Warren Buffett and intelligent investment philosophy, this is a collection of Buffett's letters to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway written over the past few decades that together furnish an enormously valuable informal education. The letters distill in plain words all the basic principles of sound business practices. They are arranged and introduced by a leading apostle of the "value" school and noted author, Lawrence Cunningham. Here in one place are the priceless pearls of business and investment wisdom, woven into a delightful narrative on the major topics concerning both managers and investors. These timeless lessons are ever-more important in the current environment. From the Publisher The book has garnered widespread critical acclaim from broad cross sections of readers; has been translated into numerous languages; and has been designated as a top investment/business book by numerous reviewers ranging from CNN to JP Morgan to the Motley Fool (number 2 investment book of all time!). This new and revised edition includes up-to-date passages and a few other improvements over the widely-acclaimed first edition. From the Author "I originally prepared this collection as the centerpiece of a symposium featuring Warren Buffett's letters. Warren, Charlie Munger, Bob Denham, and hundreds of others participated in dissecting all the ideas. This arrangement, organized by subject matter, contains a more valuable set of lessons than can be found at just about any school, library, business, or other place of learning. Anyone even remotely interested in business or finance or corporate life should read and study this collection and have a copy available for handy reference." About the Author Cunningham is a prolific author, whose books include acclaimed titles such as "How to Think Like Benjamin Graham and Invest Like Warren Buffett" and "Outsmarting the Smart Money" as well as the popular textbook Introductory Accounting and Finance for Lawyers (which is not for lawyers only). Cunningham is a renowned lecturer, holding a tenured professorship (in law and business) at Boston College, with additional teaching at schools including Columbia University, George Washington University, Yeshiva University and Oxford University. He is working on a book about corporate governance and the war on terrorism, with lessons for investors, managers, and all citizens alike. Buffett is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Berkshire Hathaway Inc., a former student of Benjamin Graham and one of the most admired and successful investors and managers in Corporate America.

Profit Power Economics is the first comprehensive manual of competitive strategy and value-investing for the economic realities of the 21st century, an age in which information costs are getting close to zero and everyone is connected. This book offers a new economic paradigm for our age-and the tools to make the most of it. Readers learn to apply these rules step-by-step to navigate today's new challenges: to choose among vastly expanded investment opportunities; exploit unprecedented freedom to structure and manage modern global enterprises; win in new 3-dimensional corporate competition; and tailor strategies to new powerlaw market dynamics. Profit Power Economics includes lively lessons from the author's experience and examples from other successful investors and enterprises-all in the context of cutting-edge economics. Visionary strategist, experienced corporate executive, banker, and economist Mia de Kuijper takes readers from first principles to practical applications. She offers new ideas and concepts, illustrated with lively lessons from her own experience and from other successful investors and organizations. Profit Power Economics gives readers a clear grasp of the underlying forces that are reshaping our world as well as a step-by-step approach to build (or find) exceptionally high-return enterprises and to navigate new-age market dynamics. She declares that it is high time that we update our ideas about competition, business models, market dynamics and risks, even about the nature of winning itself. The emergence of perfect information-fast-moving, very cheap, universally available information and unlimited connectivity-is transforming our fundamentals so dramatically that this is grounds for doubting many of the most familiar principles of mainstream economics. Corporate leaders, political leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, strategists, not-for-profit organizations, marketers, and students of modern economics will find an invaluable resource in Profit Power Economics. a fascinating new book which combines corporate strategy and economics...Profit Power Economics is a very stimulating read, whether you are a business manager or someone trying to figure out the best career path.

Schelling, 2005 Nobel Laureate in Economics Full of path-breaking economics and practical implications for MAKING MORE PROFIT, this fresh approach to building exceptionally successful companies will be useful to business leaders, investors, and strategists. Jim Lawrence, Chief Financial Officer, Unilever Profit Power Economics will create a stir in strategy thinking. All serious students of strategy should read this. Mia de Kuijper's rich examples offer powerful testimony to these fascinating big new ideas. Glenn Hubbard, Dean and Russell L. Carson Professor of Finance and Economics, Columbia Business School De Kuijper's intriguing and thought-provoking book will hearten all those in business who seek to build good companies that last and market effectively. Its wonderful message is that profit power can be obtained honorably. Esther Dyson, Entrepreneur and Thought Leader Profit Power Economics drives to the core of the key strategic challenges that confront business in a rapidly mutating global economy. Charles V. A. Collyns, Deputy Director, Research Department, International Monetary Fund Mia de Kuijper offers, in crisp, clear language, a new way of organizing one's thinking about business structures and strategies in the world of modern technology, together with the hands-on lessons she's learned in her own highly successful business career. Strategists and operating executives in the corporate world will find it very interesting. Benjamin M. Friedman, William Joseph Maier Professor of Political Economy, Harvard University, author of The Moral Consequences of Economic Growth Mia de Kuijper presents compelling ideas about the role of today's more complete, immediate, and very cheap information ... and how it still does not lead to perfect markets. Her discussion of what makes companies successful in the long run is sure to cause controversy. Arie de Geus, Former Corporate Planning Director, Royal Dutch Shell, author of The Living Company What I liked most is the treatment of cheap information's effect on the prospects for profit-yielding proprietary assets. The analysis of the effect of transparency on competition and industrial structure is very well developed. Richard E. Caves, Nathaniel Ropes Professor of Political Economy, Emeritus, Harvard University, author of Creative Industries Based on research and illustrated with lively lessons from the experiences of the author and other successful investors and leaders, Profit Power Economics draws a detailed picture of the new competitive arena and gives readers a step-by-step aproach to build (or find) exceptionally high-return enterprises.

Praise for Service-Oriented Architecture "This book provides a superb overview of the SOA topic. Marks and Bell provide practical guidance across the entire SOA life cycle-from business imperatives and motivations to the post-deployment business and technical metrics to consider. With this book, Marks and Bell demonstrate a unique ability to take the complex dynamics of SOA, and through an eloquent set of metaphors, models, and principles, provide an understandable and insightful how-to manual for both technical and business executives. This will become a required handbook for any organization implementing SOA." -Dan Bertrand, Enterprise Technology Officer & EDS Fellow, EDS Corporation "A fundamental breakthrough in the business and technology perspectives of SOA-this book belongs in every software developer, architect, and IT executive library. Marks and Bell demonstrate a creative and practical approach to building complex, service-oriented systems. I especially liked the hands-on perspective brought to multiple aspects of SOA. A must-have guide in the technology turbulence of the future." -Ariel Aloni, Chief Technology Officer, SunGard Data Management Solutions "This outstanding text gets straight to the heart of the matter, cutting through the hyperbole and discussing how to drive real business value through SOA. It will certainly impact my behavior, our governance models, and, subsequently, the successful business outcomes we derive as we continue to embrace SOA. A must-read for battle-scarred SOA veterans and fledgling architects alike." -Christopher Crowhurst, Vice President and Chief Architect, Thomson Learning "Too often, SOA has been perceived as 'all about the technology'-standards, technology stacks, operational monitoring, and the like. In this book, Marks and Bell expand beyond the technology to provide a refreshing business-driven perspective to SOA, connecting the dots between business requirements, architecture, and development and operations, and overlaying these perspectives with tried-and-true governance techniques to keep SOA initiatives on track. A must-read for those leading the charge to adopt SOA within their enterprise." -Brent Carlson, Chief Technology Officer, LogicLibrary and coauthor of San Francisco Design Patterns: Blueprints for Business Software "Marks and Bell have captured a wealth of practical experience and lessons learned in what has become the hottest topic in software development. In this book, they explain in detail what works and what does not, from procedural issues to technical challenges. This book is an invaluable reference for organizations seeking the benefits of SOAs." -Dr. Jeffrey S. Poulin, System Architect, Lockheed Martin and author of Measuring Software Reuse: Principles, Practices, and Economic Models "One of the last things companies often consider when implementing a business solution such as SOA is the impact on people. Marks and Bell provide an in-depth look at 'what has to change' from a process standpoint to make any SOA implementation a success. A great read for those considering to embark on an enterprise SOA and looking for the right mix of people, process, and products." -Alan Himler, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing, LogicLibrary SOA is a complex topic and a complex organizational goal Service-Oriented Architecture: A Planning and Implementation Guide for Business and Technology shows you how to plan, implement, and achieve SOA value through its prescriptive approach, joining the business and strategic perspective to the technical and architectural perspective.
