What are some of Warren Buffets favourite books?


I want to expand my knowledge on books abut investing…

Does anyone know the books that Warren Buffett would recommend?


Common Stocks Uncommon Profits - Philip A. Fisher.

Buffett wrote of Fisher: “I am an eager reader of whatever Phil has to say, and I recommend him to you.”

I have read this myself - it’s very good!


The Outsiders - William Thorndike

A recent favourite of Buffett’s. He called it “an outstanding book about CEOs who excelled at capital allocation."


Jack Welch - Straight From The Gut

Buffett highlighted the book at the 2001 Berkshire Hathaway general meeting. His advice was simple:

“Get a copy!”

On the cover, he endorses the book with a pretty powerful message:

“No other management book will ever be needed”


Dream Big - Cristiane Correa.

When 3G capital’s owner rang Buffett to pitch a new venture, Buffett said yes without even hearing the pitch. Such is his respect and admiration for the team at 3G!

It’s no wonder, Buffett is a huge admirer…3G’s founder is known as the Warren Buffett of Brazil!
