The Snowball: Warren Buffett and The Business of Life by Alice Schroeder was written after several biographers, journalists and publishers approached Warren Buffett and were turned down by him to write an account of his life. Schroeder quit her six years job as a wall street analyst to work full time on the book The Snowball: Warren Buffett and The Business of Life and interviewed his associates, friends and family. Warren advised her to always choose the less flattering account if she were ever faced with a dilemma that presented two accounts of the same situation. Schroeder quit her job in Morgan Stanley in 2003 to work full time on Buffett's biography and travelled to Omaha to live there and do the same. She spent over 200 hours poring over Buffett's personal files, documents, accounts, diaries, etc. It was selected as Amazon.com's most interesting business and investing book in 2008. Buffett has been known to live a life of frugal means despite amassing enormous wealth and firmly believes in investment and charity. He has set an example for his financial successors with his stringent means. He is also known to be a warm hearted person of firm principles and has lived his life to the fullest. Buffett has earned all his wealth by investing in the correct way. Considered one of the world's wealthiest and most influential people he lives with his wife in Omaha. The book was published by Bloomsbury Publishing India Private Limited in 2009 and is available in paperback. Key Features: Schroeder paints a thrilling account of the man known as Warren Buffett. She writes in prosaic and lucid language and does not mince words while presenting accounts of the financial whiz's life. The book is easy to understand and simple to read.

'An epic account of the greatest capital accumulator in history.' Dominic Lawson, The Times 'Warren Buffett's opinions are so hotly sought that THE SNOWBALL, a biography with which he has enthusiastically cooperated, would be of interest even if it answered only softball questions. It approaches him seriously, covers vast terrain and tells a fascinating story.' New York Times 'Buffett has been ahead of the curve for most of the past 50 years, making him one of the world's richest people. THE SNOWBALL provides some clues about how he's done it.' Financial Times 'A monumental work ... you feel like you've been in the presence of a monumentally flawed but riveting character ... utterly compelling.' Evening Standard
