Book Recommendation: Damn Right: Behind the Scenes with Berkshire Hathaway Billionaire Charlie Munger by Janet Lowe
Useful, interesting biography of one of my investing heroes, Charlie Munger. Munger is an unusual guy, with a personality that's hard to pigeonhole: part acerbic wit, part gruff impatience but also part educator and part philanthropist. Includes a striking tidbit that Munger once gave author Robert Cialdini a share of Berkshire Hathaway stock because he liked and admired Cialdini's work. Recall that we've discussed the ideas in Cialdini's book before here at CK and we're big fans of Cialdini's pro-consumer thinking too.
