Warren Buffett needs no introduction in the world of financial wisdom.

While there are many aspects of his personality and work that make him special, the most important are the annual letters he writes every year to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathway.

These are not just letters; these are his pearls of wisdom, his secret sauce to all the success and glory he has achieved till date.

35 years and still counting!

So today, I am writing a review on the book titled “Gems from Warren Buffett” by Mark Gavagan (get a free Kindle copy of the book on Amazon. Click here).


[Still don’t have a Kindle device. Check out the benefits of Kindle]


This book is a collection of Buffett’s most wittiest and insightful thoughts, carefully chosen from his 34 years of letters.

These thoughts will make you laugh; will provoke you to think; will force you to connect the dots.

No doubt you will end up gaining a lot of wisdom; not just financial but around life as well.

Below, I am reproducing some of the gems I liked the most from the book (this book is available for FREE on Kindle. Get your copy by clicking here).
