What Bill Gates says

You might think you don’t want to read a whole book about shipping containers. And Levinson is pretty self-aware about what an unusual topic he chose. But he makes a good case that the move to containerized shipping had an enormous impact on the global economy and changed the way the world does business. And he turns it into a very readable narrative. I won’t look at a cargo ship in quite the same way again.

What Warren Buffett says

By far, the best book on investing ever written. To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information, What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. This book precisely and clearly prescribes the proper framework. You must provide the emotional discipline.

What Bill Gates says

More than two decades after Warren [Buffett] lent it to me—and more than four decades after it was first published—Business Adventures remains the best business book I’ve ever read . . . Brooks’s deeper insights about business are just as relevant today as they were back then.

What Glenn Hubbard says

While Brooks died in 1993, this recently rereleased collection of business stories from his New Yorker articles decades ago brings classic explanations of growth (Xerox Corp.’s early years) and poor decisions (Ford Motor Co.’s problematic launch of the Edsel) that should inform and captivate business executives and students of business alike.

If you haven’t read Schwed’s book, buy a copy. Its wisdom and humor are truly priceless. This book was first published in 1940 and is the funniest book  ever written about investing. It lightly delivers many truly important messages on the subject.
